A Bountiful Harvest from Our Vegetable Garden

We are celebrating this year’s bountiful vegetable crop thanks to a glorious early summer here in the North East.

Yes, it required some workseeding, planting, mulching, fertilizing, watering and weeding.


Some plants required special attention - 

Pole beans

Tomatoes on the vine

....keeping an eye on the pests

such as staking up the tomato and bean vines  


........but look at the harvest


Jersey tomatoes

Italian flat beans

In my opinion, eating vegetables that you have grown yourself is an experience everyone should enjoy. They taste so much better than anything you can buy in a grocery store.
