Our garden is growing like gangbusters!
We've had cooler than
We've had lots and lots of rain!
And, now we have this....
(bare with ...there are lots of photo's)
This is the corn patch!
If you look closely you will see
the little tassels of the baby corn
starting to peep their heads out!
Here's the potato patch!
Hopefully there are potatoes growing
underneath ...the tops sure look great!
Just a snippet of the whole garden! If you remember this, The Urban Farmer then you'll understand my bewilderment in where I thought all these plants were going to go! Half my backyard is now farm land!
There is also lots of squash growing
here and there among the corn and also
a few plants in my front yard.
I do believe The Urban Farmer overestimated what
he thought he needed to fill the garden space!
There are carrots and onions!
there is bound to be some of this....
sweet peas! So you start with a few of these.
Trim the ends! Then blanch for
90 seconds! Yes, just 90 seconds!
Then you cool with cold water and ice.
After that you put them in your freezer
bags and they are ready for the freezer!

I didn't want to invest in an expensive vacuum sealing
machine. This cost about 14 bucks and the bags are
about $3.50 per box of 14 quart size!
Works for me!
Hope you've enjoyed a bit (okay ...a lot) of our garden!
So, tell me how does your garden grow?
