Harvest Monday-June 25

Harvest Monday 6-25-18  Today’s harvest from the potager is mostly beans, which wasn’t supposed to be the case, but the best-laid, winter-agonized over plans sometimes just don’t work out correctly!  Likely due to unusual heat along with welcomed rain, not only the “Provider” beans (upper left) but the “Strike” beans (lower left) have joined the “Royal Burgundy” beans (upper right.)  The box of peas is the last pods pulled from the clipped “Green Arrow” whose fence has now been planted with seeds for “Baby Bear” pumpkins.  Next to the peas is “Artwork Baby” broccolini, which continues to produce its mini-heads in nice succession.  The “Aspabroc” (lower right) gives us one or two meals a week with lots of side shoots.  The “Sunburst” summer squash is the 4th of 6 varieties (1 plant each) to produce.  Not shown, because I totally forgot to take a photo are 3 heads of cabbage (2 “Katarina” and 1 “Gonzales”) and a bag of  “Feher Ozon” peppers that I picked for my mother.  She wanted to make freezer slaw while her garden was too muddy to work in.  We got a lovely 1 1/4″ of rain; she received a not-needed 4″ in one hour so her raised beds are standing in water.  Wouldn’t it be lovely if the rain fell evenly over all the croplands, rather than flooding some and denying others?

    Beautiful harvest! And, oh, the weather! Sunny all week, and then on Saturday, when my husband and I were at an outdoor fair selling our books, it rained. Luckily we have a very good canopy with sides.

    Ahh! Memories of days gone by. We once had wonderful gardens…maybe someday again. I don’t think I have heard of freezer slaw. Nature doesn’t always work according to our timing.

    Your garden is producing loads! What fun, Carolee. And here I sit with my handfuls of peas, lettuce, and radishes so far. Good thing it’s not a competition. 😉

      It’s definitely not a competition! There are gardeners out there with acres…thank goodness that’s no longer me! I’m content just to see the numbers in my harvest journal grow, and the basket filled with a variety of produce for me to take to the kitchen!
