We had a great crop of onion's and they are harvested and in the cold bins in the barn. We usually have enough onions to take us through the winter. Our outdoor kitchen is an ideal place to clean the Garden Vegetables and get them ready to store or preserve in some way, or maybe just ready for tonight's meal.
We have tomatoes blooming, some green and some are ripe and ready to eat. The Kitchen window is full of tomatoes. We take them off the vine just before they turn bright red so the birds and the squirrels don't have a feast with our beautiful tomatoes.
