Harvest Time

Our gardens did pretty well this year. We tried some new vegetables and are still waiting to see how things will turn out for some. We had great success with green beans, tomatoes and lettuce. In our back yard we have a beautiful white crab apple tree that has given us one of the largest amount of fruit we have seen in years despite a late snow this past spring. I was excited about being able to make my crab apple butter, but decided I needed help this year in learning how to can it since we had a bumper crop. My kitchen maven friend and fellow blogger Pink at That Crafty Bitch (see my blog favs on the right) instructed me in the fine art of canning which, as it turns out, is not as complicated as I thought it might be. It was just a whole lot of fun! Here are the highlights in pictures from concept to finish

 For the first harvest of the season, this is our harvest of squash from our garden, along with a corn salad accented with our garden herbs of thyme, lemon thyme oregano and basil. The bread is a rich corn bread I make from a recipe I got from the Baldpate Inn, here in Estes Park Colorado. The corn cloth is one of the tarot cloths from my Etsy shop! Lammas blessings to all!
