Oh I just hated waking up this morning and realizing it is September 1st already! Where the heck did summer go. I feel like stamping my feet in a tantrum saying NO NO NO!! Okay maybe I already did that, but you will never know...lol
So here we are at week 16. Wow where did the time go.
Here are a couple pictures of the garden. The first picture is from east to west and the other from west to east. As you can see there are a few piles of debris that I am yet to clean up from harvesting...just pretend you don’t see it.
The past week had some good numbers which led to a few things ending their time in the garden.
The beans are officially done for the year. I was able to bring in 23lbs total and leave another 23 in the garden for waste. I still feel pretty ticked off at myself for that, but oh well.
The broccoli and Cauliflower are on their last legs. There are 2 more cauliflower in the garden and 4 more broccoli not including shoots. By the way aren’t broccoli shoots just the cutest thing.
Week 16 marks my first harvest of corn. Just picked 2 cobs for lunch today.
I will have to get out their later and see if anymore are ready. They look yummy. I just hope they are sweet. I usually leave them on too long and then we have 100 crappy cobs...Yeah 165 cobs last year to be exact. This year I only plant 1 row of corn and only half came up...phew!
I am happy to report that the tomatoes are still ripening as well speak! I am soo happy that I have one batch of salsa under my belt and that there will be more on the way.
I look a picture of one Roma plant, but after i picked all the nice ones off...lol
The Cherry tomatoes are still going crazy. I just wish more were ready at one time. I am eating them all before I have the chance to roast or dry them...lol
Everything else needs to be harvested soon. I just have to make room in the freezer and finish up my list of canning for the week and then i will be knee high in cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, onions, potatoes and more carrots...lol Oh well it’s a good thing!
