Sunday's harvest

Beets fresh from the garden

Ready to go in the oven. You can boil or steam beets, but I like cooking them slowly in the oven - I think you lose less nutrients that way. Bake for about 3 hours (or until tender) at 300 degrees. Then peel and cut into bite size pieces. And don't forget to cook up the tops and eat them as well. I steamed them.

Peaches cut up and ready to be made into jam.

2 batches of jam later....

And my first Wisconsin tomato from the garden.
