I love how my garden grows and fruits in cycles. One week, I may have an abundance of tomatoes, while the next week it’s peppers. Some weeks I lose some fruit to insects or heat-related damage, while other weeks I reap the full available harvest. No matter what, there’s always something to eat – and put up – from my garden. This past week, I harvested 55 ears of Glass Gem corn, over a pound of eggplant, 12.5 pounds of melon, almost 6 pounds of snap beans, 1.3 pounds of chili peppers, and 8.7 pounds of tomatoes. Not only tasty to eat, but pretty to look at!
In all my pictures, the produce is identified from the top, clockwise.

I thought my snap bean plants were done for the season. However, when I pulled up the plants last week, I found almost six pounds of beans on the plants!
I harvested my first few ears of Glass Gem corn! Isn’t it pretty?
HARVEST JULY 24:
I harvested my first golden midget watermelon. It’s so tiny! As of this writing, it’s in the fridge getting cold.
Remember the cantaloupe growing in my compost bin? I harvested the first melon from it. It’s the biggest cantaloupe I have ever seen! It weighed 9.8 pounds!!

Small harvest day.
HARVEST JULY 26:
I harvested quite a bit of my Glass Gem corn, though not all of it. Come back on Thursday to see pictures of all the different-colored ears.
What are you harvesting?
