Harvest Monday September 5th 2011

It was a bit of a slow week for harvesting. Everything is slowly coming to an end and the cool nights are not helping. This week we are suppose to have a heat streak with days going up to 34C. That should help everything out.

On Friday we had a huge cucumber harvest. 85lbs!! Now that is a lot of cucumbers. Still not sure what I will do with them!

Tuesday saw the 1st harvest of corn. It wasn’t as sweet as peaches n cream should be. However, I may have just over cooked it.

The onions are officially all harvested. I plan on braiding the ones I picked a few weeks back this evening so those will be added to next week’s total. I picked the rest today and I will be freezing these. Their total is 16lbs

Yesterday I harvest carrots, beets, corn, and potatoes and didn’t take a damn picture of them! They were for a lady in the city and my parents took them in for me last night....so no picture there, but I did weigh everything.

More tomatoes are ripening every day. These Roma and Cherry are from Wednesday

These are from this morning.


Zucchini which I thought were dying down are blossoming again! I got 8.7 lbs today.

  2. You could send some of those cucumbers to me! Please! In desperation, I spent two hours yesterday driving from one Amish farm to the next trying to find some pickling cucumbers. It was a long unsuccessful drive :(

    You had a great harvest week for sure!
