This Monday’s harvest looks pretty much like recent harvests taking place about every two days from the potager. Top left are “Provider” beans, which just keep producing pounds and pounds of beautiful beans. Even prettier are the “Velour” French fillet beans. This was their second picking and there were over 4 pounds. Last bean, top right are “Strike” which are slowing down & will be clipped off on their next picking. The peas (far left) are “Sabre” and “Legacy” both of which was their final picking. Two “Majestic” cauliflowers and a big head of “Blue Wind” broccoli are joined in the box by 3 not-so-pretty “Parisian” cucumbers. I think they needed more water. That’s the first carrots for this year, “Danvers Half-Longs” which were too close to the edge of the raised bed now that its so dry again. In the plastic bag are 1 1/2 c. of black raspberries….still not enough for a batch of jam, but maybe after the next picking. Total yield for the day: 17 lbs. Not shown are what took most of my day (and we had a “Heat Advisory” day again, so I was taking it slow!) which was pulling all the shallots (11 trays) and digging the first diagonal of garlic (2 trays) which was “Rosewood.” I’ll weigh them after they are cured and braided.
That’s my “Harvest Monday,” the first for July. To see what others are harvesting, go to Our Happy Acres, the host for this meme.
