Harvest Monday & Happy 4th of July
We hope that everyone had a Happy, Healthy & Safe 4th of July. We had a small picnic at my in-laws in the afternoon. The heat was so oppressive that we had to eat inside!! Then we came home and watched the fireworks from the comfort of our back porch. My "Little Helper" really enjoyed them. I was amazed that he wasn't afraid....he wanted more!
It looks like we are at a turning point in the garden right now. The harvest this week was light.... it did put me over 50 though! I pulled the carrots and will be planting some more as soon as the heat wave is over. Also harvested: the balance of "Little Marvel" peas, some scallions, a lone potato, the last head of cauliflower and two more TOMATOES....one small CP and a large Tiffen Mennonite, weighing 10 oz.
These are the nicest carrots I have grown to date.
We ate a few of them with the peas and a nice steak on Thursday.
This tomato is a beautiful rose color. The picture makes it look a little more red then it actually is.
Harvest Total: 3.25 Lbs.
Carrots - 15 oz.
Cauliflower - 12 oz.
English Peas - 6 oz.
Potatoes - 2 oz.
Scallions - 3 oz.
Tomatoes - 14 oz.
