We've been enjoying an incredible blueberry harvest from our bushes this year. Every morning I pick a small colander full:
The bush beans continue to increase in production and are also picked each day. So far we are keeping up with eating them all, but soon the pole beans will be ready and it will be time to begin preserving the beans.
The Yellow Summer Squash and Zucchini are still going strong. A few got away from me. These were used for Sausage Stuffed Zucchini.
A few melons were ready this week. These are some of the first that formed when the vine was becoming established. They are softball sizes and look pretty ugly, but taste wonderful. They are a perfect size for breakfast for two:
Some peppers and onion was harvested to make Chicken Fajitas.
|Jalapeno, Chile de árbol, Sweet Spanish Onion, Hungarian Hot Wax, and Marconi Rosso.|
Marconi Rosso is a sweet pepper but the rest are supposed to be hot. Unfortunately they all tasted pretty mild. Hopefully they will get hotter as the season progresses.
The potatoes have begun dying back and they have increased in size each time I have dug up some from the edges of the bed. I can't wait to see what is under ground. These Kennebec and red onion were used for hash browns.
A few tomatoes were harvested this week and more are beginning to turn red. The tomato marathon will probably begin next week.
Be sure to visit Daphne's Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
