Harvest Monday August 29th
I think this might be my last big harvest of the summer. With the beans pulled out and most of the broccoli and cauliflower too It’s now just a matter of time before the frost comes and the garden is done for the year. However, the weather channel is saying that the next week should be in the mid 20’s and only going down to 11C at night so for now everything is good.
This week brought in some pretty good numbers for tomatoes. A whole 9.8lbs of Roma
And 1 lbs of Cherry
|I pulled to hard and took a few green babies too...oops|
The beans that consumed my Saturday evening are now officially done for the year.
I was able to get 12lbs of purple beans
|don't worry I took out the bug spay before I weighed them....lol|
And 10lbs of green beans
The zucchini slowed down in the past week and I was only able to harvest 3 little guys. However, like I said yesterday there are a lot more that should be ready for next week.
The crab apples are starting to turn. So far I have brought in 7.5lbs.
The broccoli are all but done for the year. There are a few more little ones out there and a few shoots. I was still able to harvest 3.3lbs
Cauliflowers have taken over the kitchen today! There are still 4 little ones in the garden, but I brought in all of these! Have you even seen so many...well probably but I haven’t seen this many outside of a grocery store!
I made beet root relish last night and only needed a few more beets. So I only harvested 2lbs
Cucumbers that I wished would have stayed out side.....17.8
The onions that I pulled out on Wednesday are still drying in the porch. I won’t be adding them to my totals until they are cured.
