Garden Attempts by Novices - Take 28

It's working!

Happy LIttle Guy!

The only thing I am wondering now, is if we have enough sun and warm weather left to bring it completion?  I am wondering the same things about our additional tomato plants.  Our original tomato plants are almost completely done.  The blight has won but we are still getting a few red ones each visit.

Our edamame are D-O-N-E done!  Yeah!  I brought home a handful yesterday and made them... yummy!  We have thousands of them in!  If only it would stop raining long enough so I could get them all out tomorrow, that'd be great!  I read that they are great as frozen veggies so that is what I am going to do with them all.  The ones I made for Josh he said tasted delicious!  I thought they were as good as ones served in a restaurant with sushi.  What fun!  Totally doing these guys again!

Our pepper plants are nearing done as well.  Our habaneros are still growing full speed ahead!  Really, anyone want some?  I hear you can can or pickle them.  I have never done this process before.  For some reason I think I need to be taught on hand.  Anyone know how to do this?  I hear it is hot and long?  Oh my!

For the most part things are really winding down around the garden.  Outside of praying for the green new tomatoes to get red and the happy little cantaloupes and the various herbs and carrots, it is really getting near the end.  I guess the eggplants are still coming... the cucumbers are done though... and the beans... sigh... it is an addicting process, it really makes one long for next spring.

We are making sauce and salsa, and if you can believe your eyes, I even baked tonight!  Yep!  I made focaccia bread and then put slices of our fresh veggies on top for church tonight.  Impressive?  Well, don't say it till you've tried it.  Though, Josh asked me to make one with all the spicy peppers, which I did.  I first softened them in oil and let me tell you... I will never do that again.  It caused such a coughing fit in everyone of us.  We had to open up the whole house to get the fumes out.  I am not going to try the bread but am still offering it as "Hotter than being separated from God bread."  Phew! 

As for us, school starts tomorrow, so this winding down of the garden is really good timing for us.  Ezekiel goes into 2nd and Jeremiah into Kindergarten!  What a new adventure this will be!  Just don't expect any big revelations from this blog this week as we adjusted to new schedules and such.  2nd grade means more work for Ezekiel and myself!  Yeah!  I can't wait!
