Independence Day feast

We were sitting around the patio table the other night with a couple of gorgeous girl-friends talking about our plans for Independence Day which were exactly nothing when all of the sudden we decided we should have a barbecue at the garden.

This sounds like a good plan to me because I don't have to go anywhere or fret about having too much food that I don't feel like preserving this week because we aren't going to be at the market on Saturday. It's just going to be good friends, good food, and hopefully a low key beautiful afternoon.

I finished the harvest and I have some of the preparation for the preparation done. The produce I had to buy includes potatoes, onions, carrots, celery, kohlrabi, a couple peppers and blueberries.

The rest of the produce came out of the garden.
