This is just a sample of what we've been harvesting since last Monday. We have loads of okra, so I'm putting some of it up in the freezer. Cucumbers have also been super plentiful this season. One thing that I'm not planting again is that lonesome red okra you see there. In fact, I'm going to pull up all the red okra plants today and plant more regular green ones. In our garden, red okra plants are slow in maturing, don't produce much, and there is nothing special about the flavor of their fruit.
We have peaches! In the last few days, they are coming in by the bucket, ready for cooking up into all sorts of yummy concoctions. We've had peach ice cream, blueberry peach topping for our French toast on Saturday; and today I'll be fixing some cobbler... Peaches freeze well raw, so some of them will end up in the freezer too. Today's peach harvest was 7.8 lbs.!
