Measuring Up: August 2013

A good subtitle for this post would be, "and then all of a sudden, the garden went BOOM!"  This month's garden total post has me feeling a little overwhelmed - I just don't even know where to start, so I think the best thing to do is to let the pictures tell the story of the August harvest...

It has been a month filled with variety:
And a month of having to improvise when the harvest is bigger than the bowl: 
And a month of tomatoes.  Lots and lots of tomatoes: 
And a month of records:
The third round of broccoli came in bigger and better than ever this month:  
This month was so busy, the basil got a bit out of control: 
Freezing and canning, and drying began in earnest this month: 
It was a month where all the hard work suddenly felt worth it: 
And a month filled with satisfaction and appreciation:
It was a month that started to make up for a slow start:  
It was a good month.
