Harvest Monday 24/09/2012

This past week we had a couple of days of frost that really put an end to the growing season. Nonetheless, the harvest keeps rolling in. I am linking up with harvest Monday over at Daphne's Dandelions

 I picked as many tomatoes as I could and have been continuing to cover them when the frost warning comes out. This is what I have brought in so far.

I have only been about to weigh the three small boxes and the total has come to. 20.169kg I will weigh the rest later.

I went and picked as many spaghetti squash as I could. This is what I was able to save 25.7kg None of them are ripe, but I am hoping that they will still survive. There are about another 10+ out in the garden, but either the frost got them or they are too immature.
they might not be mature but they all weighed around 
2.5kg...crazy!


I also picked the last of the broad beans and got 2.250kg


The frost helped to uncover the hiding zucchini. We found 10.789kg


We also dug up another 2 rows of potatoes and got of norland and of Yukon gold, but I haven’t weighed them yet

  2. Mrs. P lots of tomatoes. Makes my 35 pounds look small. I have quit covering. If what is left out there freezes so be it.

  3. ditto "wow"!! I learned this year, that if you fertilize with chicken poop, you'd better plant stuff a lot further apart, A LOT! If you don't, nothing really grows fruit. It's all working too hard to get sun.

    And I didn't use much of this fertilizer. Boy, does it work!

  5. An amazing harvest! Our garden did extremely well this year too, especially the tomatoes. We'll be getting all the carrots out this week to put in peatmoss and store in the coldroom. Are yours out yet?
