Gratituesday: Harvest

Oh, we've had fun this year with the Harvests God has sent.

We planted a Ginger from the grocery store. It's cool enough now that we thought we'd dig it up. Not only was it incredibly tasty, now it's a neat centerpiece, and continues to stay alive!

This was our first year to harvest grapes. We made 3.5 gallons of grape jelly!

Our raspberries went to town this year too. 17 jars of raspberry jelly.

And of course, the apples. These were given to us.

I don't have pictures of the cherries -- but we picked over 10 gallons off our tree in the back yard. And we were given lots of peaches, and enough tomatoes to make spaghetti sauce every time we've needed it all summer.

My cupboards are overflowing.

Oh, the LORD has sent a terrific harvest indeed! We are so grateful!


  1. I love this post...because I get so excited hearing about and seeing pictures of fresh produce that God provides in the fall...apples, cherries, grapes, raspberries!!! Awesome!!! He is so good to give us everything we need...and He makes it YUMMY!!

    Oh, and THREE AND A HALF gallons of grape jelly! You'll need a lot of peanut butter!! :)

  2. Wow, sounds like a lot from the youth of your fruit trees, esp the cherry . . .
