Although it’s been in the 90s for weeks, my garden is still producing. I harvested 15 cucumbers, 1.5 pounds of winter squash, 6.2 pounds of peppers, 5.5 pounds of tomatoes, 2 pounds of beans, and 5.5 pounds of onions. Not too shabby!
HARVEST ON JUNE 17:
Unfortunately, I lost all my white acorn plants and a couple of my butternut squash plants to the squash vine borers. I harvested the fruit left behind, although I’m not sure it’s edible. We’ll see when I open them up, I guess.
As a note, the “mystery hot pepper” was from seed given to me without knowing what it was. They were so good, I saved seed from my peppers last year and grew them again this year.
HARVEST ON JUNE 19:
Lots of peppers and yummy tomatoes.
HARVEST ON JUNE 20:
And the beans keep coming.
I picked my first pink gladioli and made an arrangement for the garden luncheon I was planning that day.
I also picked some fresh basil and parsley for my luncheon. I love being able to pick my herbs fresh from the garden!
HARVEST ON JUNE 21:
This was a slow day in the garden….other than the onions.
As I said yesterday, the onions I planted from sets bought at Walmart were a bust. Either due to the supplier or the intense early heat, they were very small – if they grew at all. I guess I have a lot of pearl onions.
HARVEST ON JUNE 22:
I brought in quite a bit Sunday. The week’s harvest was enough to make dill pickles and hot pepper relish.
It’s amazing how many peppers a foot tall chili pepper plant will produce. I’m going to add them to my hot pepper relish this year. I bet they kick it up a notch. BAM!
I picked more pink gladioli on Sunday and created another arrangement and put it in the living room.
What are you harvesting in your garden?
