First Zuchini

We harvested our first zucchini yesterday night. It was actually two of the round variety. We decided to grill them out as we were already roasting a pan of beets, turnips and garlic with thyme and sage. We decided to grill as it was too hot in the house to use the oven. The squash was great and the mixed roast was quite good as well. We also had our usual dinner salad as well. We topped the salad with some smoked lake trout we picked up on the way home from our weekend up north.

I also wanted to put up a picture of the new runner bean trellis. I got this up a bit late but runner beans have never disappointed me when it comes to rapid growth.

Sometimes it is just so good to be home.

That trellis is way cool. Is that flexible pvc pipe that curves over the top?

Thanks Jo. The supports are bent conduit. I picked up a tool from Johnny's to bend conduit into hoops. We are hoping to extend our season a bit by using them this fall and next spring.
