We had a brutal few days in the garden this past week! One day, the heat index reached 110; one weather report claimed it was as high as 120 in some areas around here. All I know is that it was bloody hot, and I stayed inside as much as possible! Because of the heat and my birthday celebration break, I didn’t harvest as much as I normally do. However, I did harvest 19 more ears of Glass Gem corn, a half pound of eggplant, over 7 pounds of squash, almost 7 pounds of peppers, and 3 pounds of tomatoes. (Lots of green tomatoes are on the vine though, creating round 2.) Photos of this week’s garden bounty!
It was a great week of harvests last week. I picked my first lima beans, Amish paste tomato, honeydew melon, and white watermelon – along with everything else. All total, I harvested 1 (2 pound) honeydew melon, 1 (9 pound) white watermelon, 13 cucumbers, 1/2 pound of snap beans (they’re just about done), 1.5 pounds of lima beans (shelled), 3 pounds of eggplant, 1.5 pounds of peppers, and 11 pounds of tomatoes! I think it’s time to put up some tomatoes. Garden bounty pictures!
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! My garden bounty in pictures!
I think I can now say that summer has arrived in my garden because I reaped a summer’s harvest in the past week! I harvested about 2.5 pounds of various greens, 3.5 pounds of sweet and hot peppers, 3 pounds of various snap beans, 116 heads of garlic, 3 onions, 63 radishes, 8 cucumbers, and my first tomato.

What a week it’s been in the garden! The temperature hasn’t been too bad this week – mostly in the upper 80s. (Better than mid-90s!) Things are growing, veggies are ripening, and it actually rained. I’ve got lots of pics to share with you. This week’s garden pictures!
