It's that time of year again. Harvest is nearing. Many garden vegetables are ready to eat now and they are very tasty.
A bit of patience will yield a bigger harvest, and I will be leaving some in the ground, but there's no point depriving myself and my husband of tender, sweet carrots.
The yellow beans have been producing like mad. I lost many of them to an early season hailstorm. Those that survived are doing their best to make up for the loss.
The potatoes in the photo are courtesy my FIL. He's been supplying us with tomatoes, green beans, and carrots.
I am grateful for a great many things this week, but if I had to pick one I'd say it is the taste of a carrot, barely washed and straight from the dirt.
