This past week, Mark picked the first cucumbers and zucchini--a 5-gallon bucket of each. He said it was the best time he has had in a long time. Thus begins the MASSIVE harvest of zucchini, cucumbers, and very other vegetable we have planted. Last year, I nearly went crazy trying to pick it all and use it or find someone who could use it. Thankfully, we have CSA boxes this year which provide a wonderful end point for many of these vegetables. That said, I will continue my path of learning to let go when some vegetables don't get eaten by somebody.
