Holly is very proud of the 40 or so pumpkins we have harvested so far....overkill to me but she likes them.
We have literally bushels of green beans needing to be picked but we are sick of them. You can only can, pickle, freeze, and eat so many fresh green beans before it just gets out of hand.
The babysweet watermellons are great though, you can eat them right down to the rind and they are just sweet as can be.
Judy and Holly have sold several cantelopes, watermellons and pumpkins....I think it averages out to them making about $.02 per hour...farming is tough.
The first of our potato harvest
We have had such a variety of fresh tomatoes we have gotten spoiled but we have frozen some, canned a bunch, made salsa, ketchup, marinara etc. BUT THE BEST USE of them is to take a purple Cherokee and slice it thick, fry up some farm raised smoked bacon until its crisp, take some crisp lettuce from the garden and then put it all together on toasted home made bread with a good dab of mayo and your in heaven.
