harvest time!

look at all the good stuff Eric hauled in yesterday!

and on the vines, we've got delica squash (this is our largest specimen, at about 10 inches long)...

two lovely orange Cinderella pumpkins (with dog, for scale)...

Finn also likes the sun tea his daddy makes...


and I forgot to post a pic of the great garlic we grew -- with help from Frank and Matte, who selected the bulbs, coached me on fertilizer, and told me when to dig them up. They cured in Matte's basement for about three weeks, and they taste oh, so garlicy!

This is great! The first photo shows the stew or stir fry, then the second our appetizer, the third our pie for dessert, the fourth some tea to wash it all down and fourth the garlic too beautiful to ever eat!

Can't wait to share it with you!

Beautiful pictures! I like your k9 friend. He is sweet. :) I can't wait to taste more of my garlic... I completely know the feeling... I have one head cured and ate it right away... so GOOD!

You asked on my blog about what PUL was... sorry I never answered you. It is the same stuff you use for the diaper covers of clothe dipes. I figured, since it is water proof, and completely flexible, it would be good for the inside of these bags (brand new of course) so I bought some and cut it all up into bags. :)

I am really enjoying looking at your blog! Hope to see you around. :)
