End of September harvest

This week's harvest is very basic - herbs, onions, potatoes and peppers and a handful of remaining tomatoes. Not in the picture are radishes, turnips, kale and beans - they were eaten before I realized that pictures were not taken.  After all that parsley was cleared from bed we found a nice watermelon still growing - its stem is still green so we're not picking it just yet.
Garden season is coming to an end we had few nights dipping down to 37 so frost is coming soon. In the garden we have carrots seeded, more kale, broccoli and cauliflower but it depends on how much longer we'll get sunny weather for all this to grow. I still hope to see some fall produce.

September 22 harvest

Things are slowly getting back to normal at home, but garden is lagging behind. I'm not allowed to work on it for a while as I'm not allowed to bend or pick up anything heavy. But things do get harvested little by little. Tomatoes are pretty much over, only few remaining plants are still hanging in there - black cherry, black brandywine, red zebra, and azoychka being picked. Peppers finally woke up and producing like crazy so I'm happy with them - plenty for my hubby's meals. Parsley and kale are also on overdrive, young turnips that were planted in first week of August are being picked now, and two remaining ears of corn - second generation on old stalks were picked.

Happy September Harvest

It's been a very long two weeks for me here, including one week vacation in Vermont at the end of August, which was fabulously relaxing in a really beautiful mountain settings. While I was away most of the harvesting was done by my sister but most of it was also not measured so no pictures of those harvests. She did help me dug up a bed of potatoes from the large garden, so one of these days I'll try to weight it together with remaining onions but it won't be for a while longer. When we came back I did pick few items for eating with pictures below.
For now I'm taking few weeks off gardening to take care of some health issues so won't be posting any updates for a bit. Maybe closer to October if my fall garden decides to grow this time and bunnies will leave anything growing - there are leftover peppers that still producing, seeded new carrot bed, turnips and greens. And of course there will be late-fall planting of garlic and brassicas for spring. Happy gardening in the meanwhile!
