The big harvest report

Oh my oh my! 2011 has been a very fruitful year and putting this post together makes me realize how lucky we are with our vegetable garden. Bless dear Jay who puts his heart and soul into this garden - as I hardly lift a finger with the weeding, binding up tomato plants, watering or caring.

Thank to him we have the freezer packed with poached pears, de-seeded cherries, blanched off chard and spinach and corn. We got jars full of apple sauce and pickled beets, our cellar full of potatoes, carrots, pears and apples. We have enjoyed green beans to its full and tasted the sweetness of strawberries, wild and from our garden. This year we have even had a small treat of currants and raspberries, hoping for more to come next year so that we can make syrup and stock up the freezer with these goodies too. It is fantastic. I never thought I would have my own garden like this. It is a lot of work but well worth it. So here comes a fantastic potpurri of harvest pictures. Enjoy!
