It's going to be a long night

Our garden is over flowing with veggie goodness right now. It's pretty damned spectacular out there. Just look as this huge basket of swiss chard I just picked.

Now I have to process it so that the fruits of our labour won't go to waste. For this giant basket of swiss chard I'll wash, trim, blanch, squeeze and freeze.

There's loads of other stuff back there too.

Too many eggplants to count.

Dozens of peppers.

Tomatoes that look like huge bunches of grapes.

The question is... can we keep up?


  1. Wow. I am jealous of all your goodies!

    I won a $25 gift certificate to the Steamy Kitchen Shop…but they don’t ship to Canada. I’m giving it away on my blog:

  2. The rampant heat and drought mixed with a blight of buggies did my majority of my garden in. No matter how often I water, it just never seemed to be enough. I've got a few tomatoes still coming in, but not what I was expecting from 35 plants. :(

    Short version: I'm totally jealous! ;)

  3. Beautiful! Those eggplants are drool-worthy.
