Ok, so here's where I've been.
My garden cup has runneth over with goodness. the gophers tried to claim it as their own, but I beat them to the punch.
I grew tomatoes (five varieties), carrots, lettuce, spinach, arugula, strawberries, onions, garlic, leeks, potatoes and Cherokee red beans, plus plums, cherries and apples. I haven't picked apples yet, and the birds got most of the cherries (our first harvest was small anyway).
Here's what I did get.
My first leeks.
Nantes carrots, lots of them.
Strawberries. Tri-stars and quinaults. I started picking them in June and I am still picking strawberries. I have flash frozen five and a half quarts, so far.
Then I decided to take my onions and garlic to the fair, to see how they would stack up against a whole community of farmers.
My garlic took first place in its catogory. the plate that these are sitting on is a standard dinner size plate.
This was the surprise of the day for me. These are common yellow onions. No big deal from my point of view, but they did get rather large and were very pretty. I took best of show over all of the other veggies in the entire fair! And the prize was from the Master Gardeners, even. I also built the basket that they are in.
I will be back later with some of the other stuff. Enjoy!
