Alex and I spent several back breaking hours in the garden today harvesting delicious vegetables. There were hundreds among hundreds of things to be tended to. The weather was a real scorcher.
Ok, so maybe not. We had 1 zucchini with another one that will be ready in a couple of days or so, and a few of cucumbers just starting to grow. And the weather was actually pretty nice. I pulled weeds last night in the garden and this morning in the flower beds. It's nice to see your hard work payoff. I really enjoy having a little garden and flowers to look at and enjoy. This is the first year my garden has done so well. Usually I get too lazy and don't take care of it like I should. The strawberries are another story though. I am going to have to pull them all up this fall and plant new ones. I have been told that strawberry plants only make it about 3-4 years and these are at year 4. I have been able to make a couple batches of strawberry jelly so that makes me happy.
Now we have zucchini to enjoy and we are going to try some fried zucchini tonight.
