Each Monday, Daphne’s Dandelions hosts “Harvest Monday” where everyone can share links to their harvest for the week. It’s fun to see what everyone is harvesting from his or her gardens in different areas.
This was an exciting week in the garden spot as more variety of fruits and vegetables were harvested. The warm weather has continued and with some supplemental watering, the growth has been abundant.
We will begin with a few pickling cukes and small carrots:
I pulled a couple carrots to see how they were growing. I believe these are Little Finger Carrots. They were about 4-inches long and skinny but tasted great. Hopefully they will fatten up soon.
A large bunch of cucumbers were harvested on Thursday:
I left some small cucumbers on the vine and by the following day they were also ready for picking:
The harvest of cucumbers from the two days amounted to about 6 lbs of cucumbers. I weighed them because I wanted to use them for “Granny's Favorite Bread & Butter Pickles.”
Some of the last of the Swiss Chard that was planted in the spring. There will be more planted for fall:
More young Dark Red Norland Potatoes. We are really enjoying these:
The Blueberries are beginning to ripen up. We are now harvesting a small bowl full each day:
Celery and more Cucumbers:
The first Zucchini and some small Red Onions:
The first Raspberry from the new Heritage Raspberries planted this spring:
