The veggies from the garden have started coming in, and we can’t get rid of them fast enough! The zucchini and cucumbers have been putting out like crazy, the tomatoes are finally ripening, and the “sitaw” or yard long beans have gone nuts. We have so much of the long beans, we don’t know what to do with them. I think I’ll try blanching and freezing some, just to see how well they do. I prefer fresh vegetable to frozen ones. There aren’t very many people here that know what to do with them. There is one Chinese girl at work who does though, and was she ever glad to have them! I gave her a whole bag. The long beans are now in some of the grocery stores here, but they are still very expensive, about $2.99 a pound, so I haven’t been buying much. Plus, they just don’t have that fresh sweet taste that they get when they are fresh off the vines. The corn has started coming in too, so by the time the girls get back in a couple of weeks, they should be ready to eat. The sunflowers have started blooming, and in a couple of weeks they should be in full bloom, just in time for the girls’ homecoming.
