First Fruit

The first zucchini!!! This is the very first vegetable I ever grew in my organic garden. This beauty was exactly a foot long and was 4 inches in diameter. This one zucchini fed my whole family and was so incredibly yummy. When I pulled it from the garden, it didn't have a mar on it and looked better than ANY zucchini I have ever seen. I also pulled an 8 inch summer squash that was also very yummy. Not a single pesticide was used! There was nothing added to the soil aside from organic compost. I simply planted the seeds and watered. This gardening bit is really an addictive thing and even more exciting now that I actually get to eat from it! What the heck am I going to do when everything finishes growing and I REALLY have a harvest. Deuteronomy 14:22-23 "You shall tithe all the yield of your seed that comes from the field year by year. And before the Lord your God, in the place that he will choose, to make his name dwell there, you shall eat the tithe of your grain, or your wine, and of your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and flock, that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always." Deuteronomy 14:28-29 "At the end of every three years you shall bring out all the tithe of your produce in the same year and lay it up within your towns. And the Levite, because he has no portion or inheritance with you, and the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, who are within your towns, shall come and eat and be filled, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands that you do."
Wow! I'm so glad that I read that... I wasn't quite sure what to do with ACTUAL first fruit! hehehe!
