HARVEST NEWS . . . and ZUCCHINI SALAD



Nick fills both combines while Lee drives the loaded truck home and offloads it.  They are working hard, but, fortunately, they're not going hungry.  


The garden grew gang-busters this year.  Lorne even took some of it to a Market Garden!  Aline stuffed 48 bell peppers from it and has about 40 more.  She’s also been making bacon-wrapped and cream-cheese stuffed jalapeno appetizers!

                                                Time to celebrate!
