First Harvest, First Thanksgiving

We brought in our first harvest this week: a basket  of yellow squash, two zucchinis, a large cucumber, five banana peppers,  a basket of garden peas and 80 zinnias.

I kept 50 of the zinnias and gave away 30 to a friend for Mother's Day. From the 50, I made two bouquets and took one to school for the office counter.
B stir-fried the peas and I roasted squash, zucchini, onion and peppers and we ate well for supper. We are thankful for the bounty.

Gardening is over in the Keys. My last lettuce ran and my egg plants are pooped. I guess the iguana will go hungry.
