Aurelia picking tomatoes
This marks our seventh months into our homesteadying adventure and the summer comes to an end.

While we are picking the fruits of our labour, I am already thinkning about the fall and winter months to come, when we won't be enjoying the bounty of our own yard.

August 2011 was a good month for us; the much expected tomatoes and edamame were ripe and were enjoyed.

Here is the overview:

1/2 lbs Artichokes
34 lbs Tomatoes
25 lbs Zucchini
1 lbs Cucumber
Basil (I didn't bother weighing)
1 lbs Edamame (they were sooo good!)

A total of 61.5 lbs of produce!

.... and daily two duck eggs, so a total of 62 duck eggs and sunflowers and lavender!

So, what to do with all these tomatoes, you ask? Well, we gave loads of them away and I made paste, which I froze in glass containers.
