Preserving the Harvest

With all the rain, the peas decided to go bonkers. Thing 1 and I picked, and Thing 2 and I shelled almost two pounds of peas. They all were blanched, packed, and frozen within an hour and a half of picking. How's that for Independence? Just say "no" to the Jolly Green Giant.

Finally planted the parsnips, picked another ton of strawberries, set the rat trap, and pulled weeds (the never-ending struggle). The garlic is just about ready to pull.

I must be doing a fairly good job with the veggie garden, because Mr. E has offered to expand it. By 50%! Either that or he's just tired of mowing the strip of grass between the veggie beds.... Oooh. Two hundred square feet....
