Final harvest Monday
Oh how I hate having to write this post! This is going to be my final harvest Monday post of 2012. The garden was all pulled and tilled last Monday and since I don’t have a cold frame there will be no more harvests this year.
I have been hording my harvests from the past few weeks since I have been unable to post. I thought I would just add them all up into one final post and link it up to Harvest Monday’s over at Daphne’s Dandelions.
Okay so my goal was to reach 1000lbs....let’s see if I got there
I weighed the rest of my tomatoes in the house and they came out to be 45.132kg so almost 100lbs! I still have about another 20kg in the garage ripening so maybe one more harvest Monday post after all!
This a pic from when I 1st brought them all in. I didn't take a picture of each box when they ripened since I would put all the ripe ones in a box, weigh then and then use them right away. There would have been A LOT of tomato pictures then..LOL
I had some more onions in the garden and after drying I ended up with 6lbs or 2.72kg
I forgot to take a picture before I added them to the rest downstairs!
The frost got too all my peppers before I could so there total is a big zero
I was able to save two tiny eggplants they came out to 116g
A huge surprise was that even after a few frosts my broccoli was still alive and growing. I was able to harvest 809g
I got a decent amount of carrots 22lbs or 10.160kg..However there was about another 2kg that I had to toss since I left them out in the garage and they got spongy!
The beets were rather spotty and I ended up with 7.116kg They are a mix of Detroit red and golden.
The potatoes were a bit of a disappointment
Yukon gold 47.445kg and scabby. They are still okay to eat, but ugly to look at
Purple Russian were rather scabby as well we got 11.339kg
The pumpkins that I saved did not ripen and just went to mush...
