Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Thursday harvest

Royal Burgundy bush beans, scarlet runner beans, cut and ready for dinner tonight, sungold tomatoes and cukes for the salad. There is nothing as sweet as homegrown vegetables to grace the dinner table. I already have several packages of beans in the freezer, and the way the beans are producing, there will be many more.

Yummy and what a cuke!

The burgundy beans look so dramatic! Little tomatoes are doing much better than the big ones in my garden this year. So far, we had just one big tomato - Black Russian. Meanwhile,Sungold has fruits since the beginning of July. I hope September will be warm and allow vegetables to ripen.

What a feast! I wasn't able to plant many veggies this year because I've been gone so much, but I did plant sungold tomatoes, my favorite! Yours look beautiful sitting with the rest of the colorful veggies there!

We are having similar harvests! It's been so nice eating from the garden. Gorgeous beans!

Lovely harvest. And the cucumber is very green and extremely long.... I grew a more rounded cucumber with lighter shade of green. ~bangchik

I like your attitude. Fresh produce is the best and when it's homegrown it's all the better.

Are you getting rain? I'm loving it!

Your tomatoes are really wonderful. Fresh garden from your garden is really delicious and the taste is really different from the veggies you buy in grocery. Your harvest is bountiful by the way.

Food is the best when it is both home-grown and organic! I really love it when I use my harvest for my recipes. Other than tasting better, it saves a lot of time, effort and money going to the market to buy ingredients.

I totally agree on Rose. Home-grown veggies are better than veggies from the grocery and you can save time and money. But you cannot save effort because the effort in just going to the grocery and buying some veggies are turned into and effort of making your veggie plants produce better.
