Garden's Bounty

Our garden is giving up it's bounty now. Perhaps almost too fast for me to collect, process and eat.



Wonderful, shiney, purple eggplants. The plants have many more growing and hopefully the weather cooperates so we can feast on them for a long time.

Already had Eggplant Parmagian, now I am thinking Moussakka might be nice one evening this coming week.








Lots of green peppers. We used some in our breakfast omlets this morning. I did wash, clean and slice about 10 of them for the freezer. They are wonderful in soups, stews, spaghetti sauce and lasagna. A little taste of summer in the winter.









The last of the yellow wax beans. Frozen and ready for use during the winter. We did save a bowlful for supper tonight.


A large bowl of carrots. There is still more in the garden to eat. Plan on using some tomorrow for supper.
These are peeled, sliced, and blanched. Now I just have to put them into freezer bags.
Looks as if we are going to be well stocked for this winter. I love having my own fresh veggies (well almost fresh) to use in the cold, dark winter.



Well off to visit all of you. Everyone have a wonderful evening.


God bless.

What a fabulous crop you've had this year Jackie! Fresh veg from the garden makes everything taste better doesn't it. I agree - when Winter comes we appreciate the fruits & vegetables we've frozen even more :-)
