It has been a very busy gardening week.  I have spent most afternoons weeding and harvesting.  The only problem with that is that it leaves little time for stitching.   This week we harvested lots of beans, lots of yellow squash, zucchini, watermelon radishes, lots of cucumbers, and 1 lonely red tomato.  I have said this earlier but everything seems very early this year. 
We did have one pepper ready for picking, while I was harvesting the squash I heard a pop!  Yes, you know it, Jessee the wonder dog took that pepper right off the plant and took off running with her treat.  So much for fresh pepper in my salad.  The pictures below show our harvest from Tuesday.  I picked more on Thursday and should have done the same today but it rained so I will have to get to it this weekend. 
I hope to get back to stitching this weekend.  I have a stitching day planned with my Celebrations stitching group.  I don't typically get much done because we are too busy chatting and snacking.  We have been known to crack each other up with childhood memories and end up rolling in laughter with tears in our eyes.  I can't wait.  I hope you all have a very good weekend no matter how you spend it.  Thank you for all of your lovely comments.  I look forward to each and every one.

Looks like you will be busy canning and freezing your harvest.

Stay cool while you are busy.

You are so lucky to have such a good garden! I have so much shade that I can't get anything to grow. And lucky to have such a fun group to meet with regularly. Hope you have a good stitching weekend!

Your harvest looks so delicious! I really hope to one day live in one place long enough to have a garden. :)

Your harvest is absolutely envious! I've been inundated with Roma tomatoes but have only had about 5 peppers so far--I pick them very young because I love the taste and texture. I'll trade you some tiny cukes and Romas for your beautiful squash! :)
