Bounty of our hard work is paying off :) Yummy eating

Anna has been the official waterer and picker with Olivia this year in our garden...and they have been picking lots in our garden as you can see....And we are eating some yummy fresh veggies this summer. So many that we share and make lots of delicious summer foods. They picked 100 cukes in one day and so we made dill pickles- they taste just like the store bought ones or better. That nite we put up 20 quarts of pickles...We will make more tonite with at least that many cukes :) Our tomatoes are just coming in and today I made this fresh salsa that we will eat tonite for dinner. I have made lots of things with egg plants and now I have bowls of sweet peppers to put up for cooking later ( probably I will freeze them) Anyway we are certainly enjoying our garden this year......I guess the fertilizing we did this spring helped :)
