The harvest has begun to get bountiful around here. You know those zucchini Sydney posted about a few days ago? Well, we still have half the pile left and we’ve made a zucchini casserole, zucchini bread, and Sydney used 25 cups to can zucchini relish. Tonight I’m making zucchini-and-avocado pizza, and I’ll make more zucchini bread and some zucchini-filled lasagna in the near future.
In what, you might ask, did Sydney mix 25 cups of zucchini, 10 cups of onion, and other such sizable ingredients for the relish? In one of our 11-gallon garden buckets (thoroughly cleaned-out, of course). Standing guard over the relish as Sydney hosed down the mixture on our lawn (the chickens apparently love zucchini) prompted the thought, “Farm wife indeed.”
