Trading Goodies

R's brother dropped by this morning with our nieces for a visit.  He was kind enough to bring us some cucumbers and zucchini, and we gave him some cabbage, chard, herbs, beets, and peas.  It's nice to have someone to share produce with!  

The zucchini is in the dehydrator and we just finished blanching another 13 lbs of peas.  This will likely be the last big pea harvest, as the plants are looking worse for wear from all the rain we've had, and the resulting slugs. 

Our multi-faced surprise sunflower in the potato patch.

The flower bed - lots of Rose Mallow now.

The 4th dahlia plant has finally produced a flower.  Very pretty!
