Harvest Monday: August 14, 2017


OK well lots of things going on this week, although nothing new ... except garlic I guess.  The garlic was harvested weeks ago and has finally been dried and cleaned up for storage.


But back to the main events!  Tomatoes, potatoes, cukes, zukes and lots of peppers!   Plus cabbage. Busy day so I'm just showing some pics and will catch up on details later.  Looking forward to seeing what other gardeners are doing this week through Harvest Monday hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres.

  2. I too am impressed by the peppers - just lovely! Mine are absolutely dismal this year as I think slugs keep getting into them - ugh!

    1. Ooh, what a shame, it has been a terrible year for almost every gardener I know around here! I'm lucky to have the greenhouse.

    1. I normally would be waiting too for my outdoor peppers, but my greenhouse peppers are advanced.

  4. It indeed looks like lots is going on in your garden! Your garlic is pretty too, I finally cleaned mine up yesterday. And I love the pic with the tromboncino posing with the cukes and taters!

    1. The garlic was looking pretty ugly until I finally cleaned it up! And I also love the shapes the tromboncino grow into, fun for pics.

  5. Nice! Your nothing new is a lot better looking than my nothing new. I'm still waiting for ripe peppers and hoping that the rodents don't get them first. The tomatoes are barely trickling in and guess what, the rodents discovered them...

    1. Oh gosh, I also hope the rodents don't get your peppers. Nasty critters, they wait until everything is ripe!

  8. It looks like you're getting tons of delicious food from your garden. The chopped tomatoes with basil on toasted English muffins looks fantastic, I'll probably give that a try for lunch tomorrow. We've cut down all the tomato plants yesterday, so the last of the tomatoes are sitting on my counter now.

    1. Despite the mostly rainy spring and summer, it's worked out pretty well. Yes, I love bruschetta with fresh from-the-garden tomatoes!
