Yup, it’s true! Even though this Summer has been life changing and we’re both sleep deprived, we’ve kept the garden up and running!  Although the garden has received less care and time due to the arrival of our July baby, it’s still producing wonderfully and we’re picking baskets filled with vegetables! So let’s look at this week’s harvest!

Right now it’s all about the greens! We’re picking kale, cabbage, broccoli, tomatillos, green beans, sugar snap peas and jalapeno peppers.   Tomato season is about to start so we picked our first cherry tomatoes which I immediately threw up in the air into my mouth! Not pictured are the potatoes and onions which I totally forgot about – sorry!

This week we also picked our first green beans.  Beans are one of my favorite Summer veggies, and even though we suspect a family of bunnies have been nibbling on the leaves, we still had beans to harvest.

Last year, we had bunny issues with our cabbage, but this year we’ve had better luck.  Look at this beautiful cabbage head! What should I do with it?

It’s August and we’re still picking broccoli – isn’t it great? We picked the last of the cauliflower earlier this month, but we still have a few heads of broccoli left in the garden.

We’ve had another great sugar snap pea season! This is the end of the harvest as you can tell with the overripe pods.  I will shell these pea pods to just keep the peas.  From there we vacuum pack and freeze them for Winter pea recipes!This week's garden harvest includes lots of greens!
