There were a lot of different veggies harvested this past week. Here are some pictures of what has been coming out of the garden. Click on any picture to enlarge.
Four heads of Romaine Lettuce and a few Black Cherry Tomatoes. We had some great Ceasar Salads this week!
Several Carrots of different varieties.
The carrots are starting to get ready
Peppers and Tomatoes.
The Pepperocini Peppers plants are loaded. I harvested them twice and there are a lot more to be picked today.
The Blackberries are starting to ripen. The bushes are loaded. We are definitely going to have a lot of berries. They are absolutely wonderful and sweet! The raspberries are about done.
The shelling peas are finally finished and the vines were pulled on Saturday. The Snow Peas were not nice at all. They were becoming very tough, even when small and developing peas right away. I pulled all the vines both here at the house and at the plots. Who wants tough Snow Peas? The purple peas are the only peas left and still producing nice peas. This may be the last week for them though.
As you can see, there are a lot of onions drying around here! Do you like the chairs with the onions drying on them? I removed the seats and hung the onions on them. I think that they look a little Hawaiian chairs with grass skirts on! I still haven't weighed the onions or the garlic yet. They will be added in to my total once they are cured.
Here are two more Cherokee Purples, a few Black Cherries and some MWC. They were all harvested on Sunday at the home garden.
