Slaving Away

I have so much deliciousness to share, like the most kick ass marble rye bread recipe EVER!!

And not to mention uber tasty blueberry crisp.  But alas, they will have to wait.  Do you want to know why they have to wait?  Because My. Garden. Owns. ME!  I do nothing but pick and blanch veggies every night.  I can barely keep up with the harvest, much less have time for anything non-garden related, IE, SEWING activities!  Totally sucks because Philly Folk Fest is RIGHT around the corner!!!  At least I will have lots of homegrown organic goodness to share with my sisters!  I’ve already been threatened by Justine that I’m gonna get my ass whooped if I don’t bring along some of my yummy pickles!

I’ve already begun stressing about being away 4 days; who will pick my harvest?  It will be out of control by the time I get back!  Hopefully we will be without rain and nothing will fruit too fast.  I hate when veggies get too big and are no longer tender!

Here is a quick peak at tonight’s harvest.

I could have pulled more carrots, lots of beets, and a few ears of corn, but decided to wait till tomorrow for those.  I also have about 8 more zucchini hanging out on the porch just waiting to be shredded for bread and brownies.  I usually pick this much every night.  Well, all except for the white eggplant, that just finally got big enough!  I have TONS of peppers on my plants, I am just waiting for them to turn red or orange.  I also have an obnoxious amount of butternut squash that should be ready any day.  I put the seeds into the ground mid to late April.  Fortunately they keep FOREVER!

I am getting together with my brother’s family and a friend this weekend.  The kiddos are gonna have a pool play date and we are grillin’ up some veggies.  I was asked to bring along some of my delicious organic homegrown goodness, I will happily oblige!
