2019 Garden: Update 3

Update 2
Update 1

It was just a week and a half ago that I last updated on the garden (here), but so much has changed in the last week and a half with the heat.  Things are coming in!  Greens, herbs, zucchini, peas, cucumbers and I think tomorrow will be the first day of green bean harvest.  Most things are coming along, except the peppers look so drab...just not enough heat for them.

 This is the view of my orchards, berries, rhubarb, etc.  This was ALL field when we moved.

Today I gave my kids a day 'off' from school (we school year round) and decided I'd just do food prep. It's been a while since I've done that.  Although the whole plan sort of backfired because the kids were hovering around me, almost as if they were craving school!  Although I kept trying to shoo them away, they did end up helping me with some.

A day's work of food prep: 

6 loaves of bread, 
 I turned this:

Into this: 

Made a gallon of applesauce (organic apples were storebought at $1 a bag). 

Made a gallon of jam and froze 35 cups of rhubarb.
 And picked 12 cucumbers total (all not pictured here), which are nearly gone.  I tell you, this family can eat!  Thankful for a productive day and hoping to do NO cooking tomorrow.


  1. You are living an abundant life! Well-deserved!

  2. Great harvest! We have our 1st cherry tomatoes, almost beans, baby cukes
