Best part of Gardening!

Pin It
Can you guess what I may be up to this week?
I pulled a couple to beets to see how they were doing. I knew we were close to harvest time.
I was hoping to wait until Monday to weed the garden and pick beans but I realized they wouldn't last so I got dear hubby to help. Of course he took to the harvesting part like a pro. He said "this is the best part of gardening" while he picked the beans and peas. In the meantime, I am pulling all the weeds. That's ok. It's all good! I love company when I am working in the garden and the weeds aren't too bad to pull from our sandy soil.
This week I will be canning beats. We stopped at Cal Ranch and picked up a camp stove. Now I can go out back and cook without heating up the house. My power bill will thank us as well.
This weeks Bountiful Basket was great. We miss the apples but I suspect they are coming soon. 
This week we get to enjoy:
5 bananas
1 bag of grapes
1 lb strawberries
5 plums 
2 mangos
1 canteloup
2 red peppers
3 tomatoes
3 roma tomatoes
3 onions
6 ears of corn
2 heads of romain lettuce.
All this for just $16.50! It really is the best way to get some great produce in the house. We eat so much more fresh stuff with this. Can't beat that in the store. YUMMY!
