Monday September 10 harvest

Somewhat decent harvest this weekend, with few cabbages that were saved from bunny, a lonely pumpkin, tiny watermelon, handful of peppers and eggplants, some tomatoes and nice harvest of beans. Also picked were few stalks of rhubarb for making jelly. A lot of basil, swiss chard and parsley were picked but I did not weight it so you'll just see a picture of them at the very end.

    1. thank you, they are colorful but small - most just a bit bigger than golfball, and only few are good size. But i'm happy with any that come in :)

  2. I think you are getting more than just a decent harvest!! Are you going to freeze your Swiss Chard? Nancy

    1. Thank you Nancy, this harvest wasn't bad but it's getting close to a halt. i don't freeze chard because my hubby doesn't like it, so i eat it sauteed and give most of it away at work.

    For supper tonight we had roasted red potatoes from our garden. Tasted so wonderful! Last night we had stewed tomatoes from our garden. YUMMY!

  4. Great harvest! This reminds me, I have to go pick my rhubarb as well. Mine is completely green though... I would like to get some shade of red like yours for the jelly. I can't believe you're still getting eggplants too!

    1. My eggplants decided to go for another round of fruit, just like peppers so I'm not complaining. I just hope that this cold spell won't kill them - supposed to dip to 40 tonight.

  5. Wonderful harvests Jenny! My eggplants are steaming ahead as well. I think I have 20 more that will be ready soon. I never weight my herbs either. That reminds me that I have to get some more herbs dried very soon!

    1. I only planted few eggplants so don't have 20 but I think there are 4 or 5 more forming now so looking forward to them :)

  6. I looked at the harvest totals to the right and went into shock. Your decent harvest would be like a dream harvest for me. That is just an awesome and amazing amount of food to be cultivating.

    1. I'm definitely not complaining as it surpassed my target total of 500lbs for the year. Tomatoes were the biggest harvest - over 400 lbs. But the year is not over and I still hope to have good fall harvest once all greens start coming in again. Let's hope next year will be just as good and this time I'll be able to save a lot more for future instead of giving so much of it away.

  8. Nice assortment of heirloom tomatoes. I particularly like the black tomatoes. I tried Black Krim this year and they got golf ball size at beast.

    1. Black Krim is not a large tomato, on average they were about 3 inches wide but they have good taste that I like so even with smaller size for me they were worth it.
