As my little helper was watering the beds, I checked on the zukes and yellow zukes. Oh my. Well, we had grilled zucchini for dinner. I cut 8 from the garden, gave 5 to our beloved neighbors and we ate 3. I pulled 3 onions to chop for beef stew in the Dutch Oven heated with well-tended coals and breakfast potatoes hot in the cast iron skillet over the morning fire. (Side note: We also dined on fresh Dungeness crab both nights. We do not skimp when camping!)
Back to the garden. My snap peas are done *wince*.
For the first time, I am going to just head out, shoot, upload and share. Ready, set, go.
Oh dear. 5 more zucchini. 7 more yellow zucchini and 2 patty pan and there are SO MANY MORE!!! Any takers?
