Yesterday's Harvest

This is the harvest from our garden yesterday. Enormous zucchini, tomatoes that have been spared by the blight, and some peppers - happily, one odd purple one. As you can see, Tesina is open to trying new foods and she munched/gummed several cherry tomatoes. Later, seeing that Tes would eat them, Fazal was willing to try one tiny bite (it got a wrinkled nose as a review). The corn is almost ready, and the cabbage and carrots are a week or two away. So despite some strange and difficult weather, and a state-wide fungus alert, we are pretty happy with how much we are able to eat from home. Jafred enjoys the preparing and planting part, and I like the weeding and harvesting part, so it's added a fun dimension to our summer.
