Harvest Monday August 15th 2011

Once again a big THANK YOU goes out to Daphne from Daphne's Dandelions for hosting harvest Monday.

This week almost everything was ready to get picked.

I went out on Friday and couldn't find a cucumber to save my life. The hubby went out on Saturday and picked this...

 

30lbs of cukes. He figures there are another 30lbs out their, but I have to do something with these before he is going to go out there again...lol

The peas are nearing the end of their growing season. I was able to pick 10.1lbs.


I finally had my first Roma tomato harvest of the year. A whopping 8.6oz...lol But its a start. I just hope that these ones stay good until I have enough to can

I picked 2 Hot 100's too...not worth weighing though

I also had my first broccoli harvest of the year. It came in at 1.3lbs


The hubby also picked some sour cherries from his trees at the farm 3.74lbs


The kohlrabi, beans and beets need to be picked, but not today. There just is not one more inch of space in the fridge and the farm fridge is full too!

I have everything stuffed in there..soooo messy!!

    What kind of Cuc's are those and how many seeds/seedlings did you plant to yield that many?

  3. It looks like Mrs. Pickle is getting herself into another pickle!

    I think your refrigerator is stuffed even fuller than mine. I didn't think that was possible.
