Picked five more zukes this morning, one of which was huge, had another
huge one on the counter so I shredded both. Ended up with eight cups of
shredded zucchini in vacuum bags. Good for zucchini bread or fritters or
casseroles. Goes good with the many other bags we've gotten this past month.
The other four we picked will go to Miz Anne's church prayer group plus
some yellow squash.
Picked some huge tomatoes but they will be turned into BLT's, burgers,
etc. for the coming days, not to mention plain old lettuce, tomato, and
mayo sandwiches on zucchini bread. <G>
No green beans to pick and can so far, last picking cleaned them out but
the vines are blooming again. Looks like the crowder peas are putting
out runners so not long before peas are ready to pick, same with the red
Tomorrow we will cut herbs, oregano, basil, rosemary, dill weed, etc.
and then dehydrate them for future use.
If it stops raining we will go out to the U pick farm nearby and pick
blueberries and, very soon, blackberries. Figs and pears will be a month
away for figs and two or three for pears. I'm not sure how much rain
we've gotten over the last month but a foot of rain fell on Houston in
one day early this week, lots of flooding in the region and a number of
folks drowned or lost their home or both. We got about a foot here but
not all at once, over a three-week period if I remember correctly. Thank
goodness we are a few feet higher than Houston and the property was
built up five feet before homes were erected. Didn't help the highways
and byways though, lots of water over the roads so we stayed home mostly.
