Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard went to the garden today with Luke and Haylee to see what was ripe. We found the hubbard squash really getting big. They are now bigger than the kid's heads. The broccoli is ready to be picked, lots of zucchini, yellow squash, green peppers and tomatoes. Looking around we also found many green beans, beets, cucumbers and greens.

This week Tim cooked his favorite dinner - corned beef and cabbage! He used one of our cabbages and it was delicious. I can see what my weekend will be all about - figuring out what to can, freeze and dehydrate and cooking up some fresh veggies.

One thing I like to make this time of year is zucchini quiche. I cut it into lunch portions and freeze them. They are great to take to work for lunch and warm up in the microwave.
