Harvest Days

It is a wonderfully busy, satisfying time of year!!  Here at Lily Spring Gardens and Farm harvest is in full swing.
One of our very own apple trees (the Jonathan) produced for the very first time!  So we made an apple pie in celebration!

Faith has been the canning queen around here.  All the jars in the picture (and some I didn't get) were part of one day's work!! Pickles, apple jelly, apple sauce, canned pears, and more!

The gardens are all winding down and are only waiting for us to have time to clean them out and put them to bed.  One fine October day (which we have had quite a few of recently) Mumsie, Faith and I harvested the squash and dry bean patch.


Butternut squash is one of our favorite winter side dishes!!  We love this squash, and have never been able to grow enough.

Spaghetti squash is our next staple.  Wonderful for gluten free spaghetti!

Almost completely hidden by the squash vines were our Jacob's cattle beans. These are adorable spotted dry beans which are SO photogenic. :)
