Part of the day's harvest

The plan was to get a bit of studio time after morning chores, but when I did a quick garden stroll, I found out there was a lot to harvest. Here's a photo of some of the harvest. I also dug some early red potatoes which I didn't have room for in the photo; and there's more harvesting to do after dinner, when it cools down a bit. It's in the 90's now, time to clean, blanch and freeze some beans, unless some friends and neighbors read this and call me to save them some cucumbers, beans and cherry tomatoes.


  1. We seem to be on parallel posts! The other day I was getting ready to post about Wesley's band and you had a video of your daughter, then today I just finished posting about the veggies from the farmers market and here are your beautiful veggies. I wish I could grow them instead of shopping for them, you are very lucky to have such a great garden space! That hard work is paying off!

  2. Tracey, we have 11 acres of steep and steeper. Other than one tiny knoll next to my gallery, most of my veggies are grown in stone terraces we had built in front of the house. I also grow eggplants and a few tomatoes in big pots.
    Love your picture of the farmers market. I wish I had gone to ours this morning just to get some shitakes.

  3. shitakes r great mushrooms i would love to grow veggies but i need yard space to do that.
