Saturday's Harvest!

This was Saturday's Harvest.  I was able to can 14 pints of pickles and 4 quarts of green beans.  
The kids have ate all of the small Sunripened Tomatoes.  I picked 2 more ice cream buckets full of cucumbers today too!  This was my first picking of beans and my 5th or 6th picking of cucumbers!
I love bacon, cheese, and tomato sandwiches!  YUM!
This is my sunflower patch.  The pictures do not do it justice!  They are so pretty in real life!  My sunflower patch is 100' long by 6' wide!
I have been pulling a couple handfuls of sunflower plants out a day to feed to the rabbits.  They love them!

A Few pictures from my garden!

This is today's cucumber pickings!  I can't wait to have some home canned dill pickles!  

For breakfast this morning I had a ripe juicy tomato sandwich with cheese and bacon on toast!  YUM!
Some tomatoes!
3 yo DD with some of the pickling cucumbers!

This is my cucumber patch!  There are a ton of blossoms out there so I am hoping for a lot of cucumbers for pickles!!
This is one of my rows of beans!
Down the bean rows!  It has been so hot here that the blossoms are just melting right off the vine.  I am hoping we get some cooler weather so I can get a bean harvest.  Home canned beans are hte 
This a row of tomatoes!
I have a couple peppers and ONE zucchini out there that I forgot to take a picture of!
