I had a banner week harvesting in the garden! Most of the past week was in the 80s, and my plants were displaying their best fruit just in time for the county fair. Unfortunately, the cold is coming a couple weeks earlier than normal, so this may be my last big harvest week of the year (at least, until the fall crops mature). I harvested 4 tomatoes, a handful of greens, over 3.5 pounds of snap beans (my last of the year), almost 3 pounds of eggplant, almost 6 pounds of winter squash, and over 12 pounds of peppers!
Produce is identified from the top clockwise.
HARVEST OCTOBER 28:
While I wait for my lettuce to mature, I can harvest my arugula and escarole. In a week or so, I’ll be able to start harvesting some kale leaves.
HARVEST OCTOBER 29:
I picked the last large snap bean harvest of the year.
Now this is a pepper harvest!
Eggplants at the end of October…love it!
HARVEST OCTOBER 31:
I’m hoping I’ll be able to harvest a lot more of my pumpkins before the hard frosts come.
A few more peppers….
The absolute last of the snap beans; I harvested just as much in the fall as I did with my spring planting. And even more peppers…
HARVEST NOVEMBER 1:
These tomatoes aren’t ripe yet, but I was concerned the 37 degree weather forecast for the night might hurt them. They’re ripening on my windowsill. Tomatoes in November!
