Our carrots were fabulous this year. And we blended up the greens in our green smoothies and chopped them up for soup. Carrot greens have a strong parsley flavor. They're delicious and packed with vitamins.
We also grew lettuce for the first time this year. It was a mesclun mix which you can cut and it continues growing. So sweet and pretty!
Zucchini! Our zucchini plants were bountiful this year including few extra large ones after we returned from our vacation. Grilled, sauted or baked it's a wonderful veggie. We also grated and froze about 20 bags.
CORN! We live in Nebraska so of course we have sweet corn. Hand-picked from the Lucas farm.
We ate as much as we could and froze the rest. It will make some yummy chowders this winter.
What a bounty God has granted us this year. It is so rewarding to see our freezer full and our cupboard filled with canning goods. Not only has it been fun, I've gained much in my hard work of preserving. God is teaching me more every day how important my job here at home is.
