Harvest Monday 11/05/2012


Oh my, this month totally snuck up on me and here it is the 5th already!

Today I am sharing my last harvest Monday for 2012 and linking up over at Daphne’s Dandelions. I brought in the rest of the tomatoes that I had in the garage and after sorting though the ones that had gotten a bit squishy from frost damage I ended up with this. 15.875kg or 35lbs

That brings my grand total up to......drum roll please.......... 399.416kg or 880.5lbs

As you all know I had wanted to reach that 1000lb goal that I had set for myself back in the spring. However, with the few failures this year I am EXTREEMLY happy with what I did get. I have a cold room and freezer full of yummy garden treats...that I will be showing you all very soon.

Thank you for following along with me as I showed off my harvests for 2012. And thank you to Daphne for hosting Harvest Monday's and giving me the chance to play along. I had fun taking part and recording my highs and lows in the garden. I shall have a few more gardening posts in the next few months and then seedling starting will be here before you know it!!

  2. I'm clearing up too at the allotment, but I still have potatoes to dig up when I'm ready, and leeks, calabrese and parsnips to take me through the winter. I'm jealous of your tomatoes - mine didn't ripen so I put them in a drawer with a banana, but they went rotten. Boo! Should have made that green tomato curry after all.

  3. You got pretty close! I can see why you're happy - you have a lot of fresh yummy stuff put up for the winter. I'll be by at 6 for dinner! :)

  4. Those are some lovely tomatoes. And there is always next year to break the 1000lb mark. But 880 lbs is just wonderful. I couldn't come close to eating that much. But you probably have more help from your hubby than I do with mine.
