A week’s haul

By Penny Stine

We went camping last week and before we left, I went out to the garden to pick whatever was ready. This is what I got. In addition to the green beans which are clearly visible in the plastic bag, I also had Swiss chard, kale, basil, rosemary and ground cherries in the other plastic bags. I also had lots of onions and garlic.

I took it all on our camping trip. Although we were gone for a total of six nights, the hordes I must have been expecting didn't show up, and I ended up bringing some of this great produce back home. Needless to say, we ate really well on our camping trip.
