Boy oh Boy the weeks seem to be flying buy! Week 13 ALREADY!!!!
It was a good week for the garden. I was able to harvest 56lbs on Harvest Monday and everything is screaming to get picked again.
Here is my weekly picture going west to east.
I have had a couple of firsts again this week. The 1st red tomato which can been seen in yesterdays post and I think my broccoli is ready to harvest.
I am not entirely sure if it is ready to be harvested or not. This is the first ever broccoli I have planted. The variety is Goliath Hybrid and I planted it from seed in the garden back in may. I didn't think it would grow let alone actually produce a big ole head! I read online that when you start to see a bit of yellow in the head that is means it is ready to bolt. Since I see a bit of yellow I think it is time to take her in. I hope it tastes as good as it looks!!
I think it might be time for the onions to come in too, but again I am not sure. I usually only pick them in September when the stalks have fallen over...but something is making me want to harvest them now
Now for my weekly updatesStrawberries- still not producing, trying to spread but the cucumbers are over taking them
Raspberries- continue to grow, but no berries. Lot of flowers though
Zucchini-Both plants are continuing to flower. Not very many babies though
Cucumbers- Lots of flowers and wee ones. Not enough to start pickling yet
