Harvest Monday: August 21, 2017
OK well I have more of the same this week ... peppers and tomatoes. The top row (L to R) are Ancho, Gypsy, King of the North and Corno di Toro. Bottom row shows Hungarian Hot Wax peppers plus Hahms Gelbe and Andrina tomatoes with two small jalapenos below.
The Hungarian Hot Wax peppers are currently fermenting for a hot sauce. The Ancho peppers have joined those from last week in the dehydrator. The tomatoes went into a tortilla casserole with the last of the previous season's beans.
Plus more cucumbers and a couple of tromboncino squash. And I've started to harvest the "drying" beans. I've already had the Vermont Cranberry in the dehydrator to speed up the drying.
I've had a few more Forme de Couer tomatoes (literally translated as Heart Shape).
And as pitiful as they look, I decided to clean up the onion bed and pull just a few carrots.
I have also cleaned out a 4 x 4 bed of potatoes with very little to show for it. Maybe 2 lbs? Ugh, but I still have several grow bags with potatoes on the go.
And, as always, I look forward to seeing what other gardeners are harvesting or cooking this week by checking out Harvest Monday submissions hosted by Our Happy Acres.
