Some have already been harvested as shown on a previous posting.
This spaghetti squash is the first of about 8 on the go. It is the first time I've grown this type of squash so I'm anxious to crack it open. I love spaghetti squash and have already promised some to friends so I hope it is okay.
And more of the usual suspects. These 5 pounds of blue russian potatoes puts me around 20 pounds plus so far for my potato harvest. And I still have about 15 plants in the ground, including my beloved fingerlings which I haven't touched yet.
I don't have too many tomatoes ... not enough to start canning, at least.
The black krim, which are normally a purplish-brown, are all coming out this yellowish-green. Strange colouring, but ripe and sweet. The seeds I used came from one of last year's tomatoes which was the right colour when I harvested it - but almost all of my black krim's have been this lighter colour this year. I think I'll chuck the leftover seeds and start over.
I pulled out all of the beets as I wanted to use the space to transplant my strawberries.
I also pulled out the remaining cucumber plants - too many already! But look at the monsters that I found underneath. Not sure what to do with these, but I hate to waste them so I'll figure something out.
And I harvested all of the remaining red onions from the raised gardens. I'm pretty happy with how they came out as I usually struggle with onions. I suspect it is simply the location as the raised gardens have great loose soil. I still have some Spanish onions in one of the dug gardens but they are tiny in comparison.
These are actually Red Baron bunching onions - I have been using a lot of chives when I want some chopped greens for garnish and have been neglecting the green onions. I didn't realize they would grow so large if left long enough!?
I realized it was silly not to dry out herbs when I have so many so I've added some thyme to the sage I started drying last week.
And from this mornings little harvest, I have some more tomatillos and both sweet and hot peppers. I have never had problems before growing jalapenos but this year's crop is a bit pathetic - again, I think it is the cool, wet weather. Most of my gardening friends around here are complaining about the lack of tomatoes and peppers.
In fact, I went to a local market where I often purchase "seconds" of tomatoes when I am making large amounts of sauce only to be told their tomato crop wasn't doing too well this year. But they suggested I come back in a couple of weeks (I must have salsa for the winter!).
That's it for my recent harvest ... visit Daphne's Dandelions to see other harvests from around the globe.
