Recent harvests

Okay, even I'm tired of salads now. But my lettuce is still producing abundantly, so I give it away as often as I can. For a recent potluck, I picked some buttercrunch lettuce and pulled up a few carrots, too:

A few days later I picked lots of green and wax beans (and a zucchini, too). Yesterday I tried blanching the green beans for freezing. It seemed to work well, but I won't really know until I pull them out to eat in a couple months! Sliced zucchini, coated with olive oil and garlic powder and then broiled, continues to be my favorite way to eat these yummy veggies. But zucchini bread is a close second!

One of my favorite zucchini recipes: saute them in butter and sprinkle them with parmesan cheese. Cover until they are tender and serve.

I just stopped in from Catholic Mother's Online...Hello!

Great job on your garden, Frances! I hope we can grow some vegetables as beautiful as yours soon!!!

Just read your harvest post -- blanching and freezing is what I do when I have a large amount of beans that we won't use right away. They cook up very tasty this way! Not as good as the fresh, but better than commercial frozen.
That is a very impressive harvest!!
