From those beautiful February days of planting, we did have some production at Sunnybrook Farm.
Ryan was a terrific steward over his precious pepper plants and harvested a horde of jalapenos!
We turned them into jalapeno poppers, dip, soup, and froze them to use all year.
Our Moapa squash seeds, a local cultivar that I use like pumpkin, also gave us an abundant harvest.
Rebecca won a “carving” contest at Halloween with her Mr. Moapa.
At Thanksgiving, Ryan was a trooper cleaning out all the seeds and goop so I could turn Moapa squash into pumpkin streusel squares (yum!) and a side dish.
And, of course, not pictured here is the often-overwhelming zucchini harvest. I think we had so much that it wasn’t fun anymore, so no pictures. 🙂 We also enjoyed some delectable tomatoes, but they never last long enough.
It’s always a joy- and a bit surprising- when we have gardening success!! We’d like to think we are somewhat self-reliant, though we still have a long way to go…
We are- and try to be- House Upon a Rock.
