Today's Harvest

I haven't been online much because I have been spending much of my time in the kitchen processing harvests like this one.

Today's harvest includes:
3 5-quart pails of tomatoes
1 pint of raspberries (both yellow and red)
1 huge bucket (maybe 2 gallon?) of Swanson Red Grapes (seeded but sweet)
4 cucumbers
2 quarts of green beans (both green and purple)
1 quart of broccoli

I really should pick some apples too but I want to process all of this first.

I grumble and complain about all of the work this time of year but those who know me best know that I really love it and would rather be busy than complaining that nothing grew. And in the deep of winter it will be so nice to be able to enjoy all of this bounty!

I hope all of you are having great harvests this fall as well!

Nice harvest, Kathi! I have had a productive garden this year, too. It is nice to enjoy the fruits of our labor, isn't it?

I'm busy processing my harvest as well. Sept has been a busy month for me with tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplants, green chili peppers, beans and ofcourse apples all coming in!! My table is fully occupied with all of the above and there is no space for anything else right now! It feels great, doesn't it??
