We now have over a hundred pounds of squash. It is safe to say that we are having a good summer harvest.

The summer harvest is officially underway.

The mystery bush bean plants are just getting started and have given just over 2 kg of beans so far.

And this week’s harvest star is definitely the patty pan squash.

We’ve brought in over 6 kg this week! Does anyone know of any excellent recipes?
