Garden Bounty ~ Week Ending 6/15/14

This weekend, I harvested my first tomatoes and eggplants. It was also quite the weekend for harvesting beans, peppers, and cucumbers, too. I harvested 3 eggplants, 19 cucumbers, 2 pounds of tomatoes, 5 pounds of peppers, and 5 pounds of snap beans.

I am very pleased with the production of this Israeli variety of cucumber. Crisp and tasty, too. Definitely a keeper.

Most of my chili peppers are barely starting to ripen (if at all yet), but the Filius blue peppers are quite prolific.

The tomatoes are on my counter in front of the window, finishing to ripen. I think today will be the day I sink my teeth into them! This makes all the hard work worth it, doesn’t it?

What are you harvesting from your garden?
