While we were away the vegetable garden exploded, so when we came home it was harvest time. I wanted to pickle the beets and we have zucchini coming out the yin yang. We have been eating the lettuce (and sharing it with anyone who wants it) all summer. The potatoes are also looking good. But rather then harvesting them all at once, we done some every couple of nights when we eat potatoes.There are many reasons we grow vegetables, it's cheaper then buying them, I love to watch it grow, we know they have no pesticides, no gas is used to deliver the vegetables. But my number one reason for growing my own vegetables is the way they taste. They taste so damn good.
