Harvest Monday

Well, I have a dead PC but I just can't ignore harvest Monday. Do I have much to show for it? Nooo... But that is not the point. It is dead of summer beyond hot and muggy - but we were able to eat some things from our garden this week. A small pot of cowpeas made a nice meal for 2, I threw in some extra okra cause we seem to have it coming out our ears as well. Found out something I am not thrilled with. Turns out okra is one of those veggies you have to flash before freezing. Guess its a good thing gumbo is the main reason for growing it. We can use the fresh for frying I suppose.
Thumbs are tiring out so have a great day, I can't wait to catch up on all the gardens bounties when I get up and running again.

  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my gumbo recipe!
    We also have okra coming in from our garden. It is one of the few things that grows here in FL in the dead of summer.
