Fresh Garden Salad

My mom is picking vegetables left and right from her garden. Two weeks ago she told me they were filling their cupboards and freezer with all they will need for the winter before giving any to me, my sister, and brother. Last week, she sent up a huge head of cabbage, a bag of small cucumbers, and a bag of green beans. All very yummy. Soon we will have zucchini!
