Lots of veggies...

 Now that I'm almost 100% better...I'm back in the garden again...trying to catch up on 2 weeks of neglect...lots of surprises out there for me...apples are getting big...we have 1000's of apples...there will be lots for us, family, friends, neighbors...the food shelter...anyone and everyone who will take them very soon! Our apple tree is a bit odd...like us...it bears fruit in the Summer...not Fall like most!
 The kale is huge and we're eating it every day...I just finished a salad for lunch...half romaine...half kale...tasty!
 We have lots of peppers...bell peppers have been doing well...Don loves those! These are or shall I say will be...yellow Hungarians...I don't know why that front one is so round...they get long and thin...unlike me!
 Japanese eggplant is doing well...a few more days and we'll harvest some...
 Oh...I can't wait for these guys...big beef tomatoes...Don pulled one Amish one...I forgot to take a picture...we'll have it tonight with some cucumbers I picked...
 Here's a lemon cucumber...never had one...but I do love cucumbers, so I had to try it...
 Japanese cucumbers...we'll have some of these tonight...Yum!!
 Squash is still small...it gets a lot of shade...so it is going slow...but we're patient!
 Don caught this lovely photo of me getting the succulent boxes ready for the flea market tomorrow...
 I have a ton ready to go...
Now let's hope everyone is in the buying mood!! If you are a local...we'll be at the Pasadena City College Flea Market...we're there just about every other month...this time we're in the parking structure...level 2...booth 575...just in case you go and want to visit!!
I have been sewing a bit too...I'll show you what I finished next time...I'm off to check my totes so Don can finish loading the car...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

I've never had Kale. I keep saying I'm going to try it but I always forget when I'm at the store.

Im so jeaqlous of all your vegies! my squash is slower than slow, barley growing, I guess not enough sun....but I do have tomatoes! that kale looks amazing!!!

Oh, I am so envious! We just don't have room for all those wonderful things. I so miss going out to the garden and harvesting for dinner. We do have tiny tomatoes and blooms on the peppers...and our local farmer's market starts this weekend, so that helps!

Everything looks great, especially those apples! I really want to plant some fruit trees on our property soon so we can enjoy our own fresh fruit. So nice that you get so many apples to share with others!
