Harvest time

"He told them another parable: 'The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.'" Well harvest time is upon us. The garden's really producing. Lots of broccoli, spinach, and peas. A lot more than we can eat. That means it's time to start putting things up. Been freezin' a lot of spinach this past week. About three bushels full. All from a 30 foot row. Here's an overview of the process.

Place in steamer.
'Till wilted.
Allow to cool.

Once frozen, place in freezer bag.Label and return to freezer. Viola.
Got a good soaker on Friday. It rained on and off all day with a couple of good downpours.

Here's the squash patch again. The first zuccini is almost ready to pick.
