The Bounty!

This isn't all from my garden, but my brother, sister-in-law, and nephews stopped by over the weekend and had some vegetables to share. They brought loads of cucumbers, onions, and garlic, which is nice because we aren't growing those things.

Do you see that cucumber next to the giant zucchini? My brother handed me that thing and all I could do was turn around and try to unload our giant zucchini on him!! He wasn't having it though so we now have about 15 lbs of cucumbers and one 15-lb zucchini! I'm guessing. Next year I hope to add a produce scale to my gardening shed, but for now I'm just guessing. 

I also gave them peppers, which they didn't  have. Garden exchanges are a beautiful thing when they work out. I was thankful they didn't try to give us any tomatoes!

Next weekend we have a block party and I'm thinking we'll be making some type of cucumber side dish!
