My husband pulled up the last of the english pea vines and pulled the last sprigs of broccoli from the garden yesterday. We shelled peas and put them in the freezer, nothing tastes better then home grown peas in pea salad! He also pulled all of the onions and lettuce , we have really enjoyed some wonderful salads this year, we grew romaine, bibb and red lettuce, only wish our tomatoes had been ready at the same time as the fresh lettuce. We are hoping the rest of the garden does well, it seems like it's an every other year cycle with our garden, last year we had an overabundance and canned 72 quarts of green beans, 64 pints of pinto beans and too many tomatoes to count. So this year we aren't expecting quite so much. However, we are thankful for whatever the Lord allows us to harvest.
