Harvest Update: June 24, 2011

As you can see, our harvests are dependent on the season. We're getting LOTS of Strawberries, Green Beans, Cucumbers and Zucchinis. The Tomatoes are coming in more frequently as well.  We have green grapes coming in, but we have a "Giant, 7 yr old, black-haired mouse"(aka- our hungry boy) eating them straight off the vine and they aren't getting a chance at harvesting!  We're freezing a lot of the strawberries for later use, and our son loves them as a cold, frozen summer treat. He exclaimed, "These frozen strawberries are like popsicles but better, because they've got no sugar in them!" I totally agree!
Here, we harvested one Valencia Orange to try out.  The top, greener portion of the orange was significantly more tart than the bottom half of the orange. I guess we'll have to wait on them a little more!

Beautiful as always and makes me hungry!

Also, I referred to myself as a red-headed mouse when something tasty "mysteriously" got eaten over the weekend. What a funny coincidence.
