Simple garden techniques described in details so anyone can easily follow through on their end while sharing ideas and pictures on how the garden is progressing through out the year.
Can't believe the amount of produce you are still getting! Very nice! Nancy
Nancy - if you look at the weight totals you'll see that it's really not alot. This week reached only 13 lbs. Every week is getting smaller and smaller.
Well it all looks great to me! It is true that the harvests are winding down now.
It is winding down but I'm enjoying picking anything that's ready :)
Look at all those beautiful tomatoes and peppers! Another great harvest week for you. We all suffer the ramp down blues of the garden tally's getting lighter and lighter. I still have some big ones to go though as I have yet to lift the potatoes and my pumpkins and winter squash have yet to be harvested (they will be in October for us). Once they are done though, it will be very light harvests as I will be into the greens and root crops.
It's in-between harvests time that's always depressing. I wish I had more squashes or potatoes to pick but they're all done. Pupkins were ruined and only 1 survived. Fall plantings are just waking up so it will be a long time before anything harvested from that side. I have quite a few green tomatoes setting all of the sudden, but with temps getting into 40s I'm not sure how ripe they'll get.
Still looks like a pretty good harvest to me. Mine has mostly been drips and drabs all summer.
Thank you and I hope yours will be good next year. It's been a very odd year.
Your bounty continues to astound!
Thank you, it's trickling in for now so I'm happy to harvest it :)
I think that that is a really nice harvest You got there, Jenny! Have a good week! :) Mia
Thank you for visiting :)
Let me also say I think that's a nice haul you have there! We're in between summer and fall crops here too. I'm ready for some variety! But not really ready for winter.
I'm definitely NOT ready for winter - cold and wet weather makes me very sick and depresed so I'm enjoying sunshine while it lasts.
That looks like a nice harvest to me, I guess small is a lot better than none. And look at that haul for the year - 839 pounds! Whoa, I think you've deserved a well earned break.
Oh I'm not complaining, i got a lot more than I was hoping for.
That does not look like a small harvest to me.
thank you, it's better to have something that nothing at all i guess.
Fabulous range of tomato varieties - your salads must be divine. How many different varieties are you growing?
Here's a list of all varieties that were growing this year: http://simplegardenmadeeasy.blogspot.com/2012/09/tomato-variety-review.html
Thank you :)
I'm absolutely amazed by all those tomatoes!
Thank you, I wish they were just a tad biger than a golfball :)
Ha! Small harvest?! Thanks for the giggle! I can't believe the value you bring in each week! Crazy! Good work!
