I don't really know what I do to my squash and zucchini plants, it's just one of those things that apparently grow well under a black thumb. Or maybe the Lord loves growing it so much He just blesses us with extra. (Since I can't grow very much else well.) I really should pay more attention to them, actually. But I get a big harvest, and by the time the bugs start killing them off, I'm somewhat relieved. We all are, actually, we've been eating squash and zucchini almost every day for a month now.

I learned this year that I can grow spinach. A lot of spinach. We've been eating spinach for a couple of weeks now. But we still have A LOT. And we've got peas, squash, and zucchini coming up fast, so the kids and I needed to get some of the spinach out of the way. I thought it wouldn't take long, that we would harvest it quickly and that we wouldn't have a ton. I was hoping for 10 quarts actually, so I could put one quart in each of my months of the meal planner.

I've tried many years now to make good dill pickles. I have failed miserably every time. I took the year off last year out of resignation, but this year my hopes are renewed and my determination is strengthened. (Will that result in some good dill pickles? Who knows!)

Even though I have failed miserably at gardening this summer, with the energy of the second trimester and a nesting mother, I have been trying to put up some food for our winter supply. So far...
