|Aurelia picking tomatoes|
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.
