Ahh… the joys of gardening!
As I sit here blissfully staring at a basket full of lovely items we gleaned earlier this morning from our garden!
Today was quite fulfilling (okay, other than the jalepeno jelly that never set).
My father and I put up over a gallon of peaches this morning,
and nothing is more exciting than seeing all those lovely bags of peaches sitting in the freezer.
Except, perhaps, the gallon bags of green beans that are right next to them! 🙂
That makes a total of 2 gallons of green beans in the freezer,
with more still to come over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, our menu is liberally sprinkled with garden produce.
