Harvest Monday: August 12, 2013

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 gathering from his or her gardens in different areas.

This week's temperatures were much cooler than normal for August. The mid 70 days were nice, but nighttime temperatures in the 40s had the garden a bit confused. I am still waiting for the tomato glut to begin, but Juliet provided a few more this week:

Juliet Tomatoes

Bush beans continued to produce:

Indy Gold Wax Beans

Royal Burgundy and Indy Gold Wax

More cucumbers and zucchini came out of the garden than photographed. The Round Zucchini are new. They were in a mixed "Spanish Summer Mix." I was hoping for Yellow Crook Neck since my other seeds were duds. These round ones work well for stuffing:

Other harvests:

Copra and Spanish Onions

Dark Red Norland Potatoes

Kennebec Potatoes


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


  1. Gorgeous harvest! Love the onions, potatoes and berries and totally jealous of those beans!

  2. What beautiful harvests! And you take such attractive pictures of them, very inspirational. It has felt more like September than August around here too. Weird year.

  3. Great harvest!! Everything is looking wonderful! We too are just on the edge of that tomato "glut", I think we might be about a week away! 70's oh wow that must be heaven, we are still hovering around 95 every day so I'm jealous!!

  4. HAHA! I usually grow the purple and yellow together, too. They look great together, but not for any other reason. LOL. Just for aesthetics. :-D

  5. Your beans are looking so perfect! Mine are starting to get a lot of bug eaten spots right about now! And what a bunch of yellow beans you got! Everything looks great!

  6. The harvest looks great. I just brought a couple of blueberry bushes so look forwards to the harvest next summer.(Its winter here!)

  7. The contrast between the Royal Burgundy and Indy Gold Wax beans is a good highlight that the same 'types' of plants are capable of producing such a crazy-wide variety of colors. Not all beans are green!! ^_^

  8. The beans are beautiful, I love the yellow and purple together! What a nice harvest of onions too, I'm envious, some day I'll have to try to grow some.

  9. We're all waiting for the tomato glut I think. Meanwhile, you have some really nice beans, squash and potatoes.

  10. Beautiful harvests. And those beans looks so pretty in the sunlight.

  11. Your onions look really nice. I have never had any luck with onions.

  12. I wish I could harvest more blueberries - we just get a sprinkling of berries. Do you do anything special to yours?

    1. Sue, I don't really do anything to the blueberry bushes. In fact, they are in great need of pruning right now. Our soil is naturally very acidic.

  13. That round zucchini is great! I've never seen such a thing before!
