Harvest Monday: August 16, 2010

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.

It was a great week in the garden spot. Below are some of the bounty that was harvested:










Be sure to visit Daphne’s Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.

  1. Your red potatoes look wonderful! I didn't get a single red potato this year. The darn voles ate all of them :(

  3. I am not sure which is prettier... the basket of red tomatoes, the bounty of red potatoes, the contrast of the green and purple podded beans, or the bowl of blueberries/blackberries/raspberries! The variety and quality of the produce you harvested this week is wonderful.

  11. Robin: I am so sorry you didn’t get any red potatoes. I was pretty lucky, only two showed signs of being munched on by something under ground.

    Kelly: This has been the best year for berries.

    KitsapFG: I were keeping tract of pounds, this would have been the largest week. The garden is doing incredibly well this year in comparison to last year.

    EG: Tomatoes are abundant right now. All varieties are finally ripening.

    The Mom: The cantaloupe is really good this year.

    Meemsnyc: Yes, the cantaloupes have all been very sweet so far. I am still waiting for some to ripen.

    Debiclegg: Thanks! I had a great first time harvest of red potatoes. The tomatoes are doing very well too.

    Shawn Ann: The tomatoes at the top are mostly paste tomatoes. Roma and a couple small San Marazano.

    Daphne: I hope you have eaten by now.Sorry to make you hungry.

    Nartaya: Thanks!

  12. What a fabulous harvest you had, in quantity and quality! A quick question about your cantaloupes - do you keep track of how many melons are growing on each plant/vine at any given time? As in, do you try to limit the number of melons growing on each vine (by pinching any new flowers), so they can concentrate their energy on already growing melon(s), or do you just let them be and grow as many as each vine can?

  14. That is a nice harvest. I especially like those 'antelopes' as my youngest would say. Would love to grow something that luscious looking.

  15. thyme2garden: Probably not the best advice, but I just let the melons do their own thing. They are so intertwined that I am not even sure which plant is fruiting.

  16. Looks great, especially all the potatoes. I was tempted to big up my whole bed but the foliage is still pretty green.
