How does my garden grow?


Better than ever. Here are some pictures from the last couple weeks.





























Here is a picture of a daily harvest - about as much as I'm carrying down to the house daily. The peas and beans are in full force. Getting a couple zucchini daily. Been thinning onions and pulling the ones that get flatened in the rain. Dug the first potatoes yesterday and made potato salad. I wish that dinners were this easy all year, just cooking up whatever looks good that day. 
Been spending time picking wild blueberries. Picked about eight pounds the other day and froze most of them. Dustin is in Chitina right now, hopefully coming back today with forty Copper River Red Salmon. I've got the brine ready, the smoker and chips pulled out as well as the vacuum sealer and freezer paper. Just need to sharpen some knives. Its harvest time, not just for vegetables but berries and fish too. I feel so wealthy this time of year, rich with an abundance of healthy and tasty food.

Everything looks so delicious, I'm jealous! All I had room for this year were snap peas, carrots and Strawberries. I love your blog and have been enjoying reading back through your older posts, learning lots! Thanks for taking the time to document all your valuable knowledge and I hope you continue to do so! :)

Emily,
It looks like that garden grows mightily! What a harvest to enjoy. I'm catching blueberries on the fly and a few mushrooms along the way, as a garden eludes me yet another year.
