Here are a few pics from this morning's harvest session.
I love all the colors!
This picture shows the colors of the Bright Lights Swiss Chard a little better.
To the left is a 1 Ball Squash to the right is an 8 Ball Zucchini Squash, in the middle is a couple straight neck summer squash.
Here are the side shoots we've been getting from the once harvested broccoli plants. These plants were first harvested about 2-3 weeks ago. These side shoots add up surprisingly fast. Some of the side shoots are more like secondary heads and were about 3" across! These smaller shoots, if they keep producing like this, will really help us reach our goal of 40 quart bags in the freezer for winter.:) By the way, this red tub is a 7 1/2 gallon size and it is very handy in the garden for transporting to and from the house. I am really glad I got it!
Here are a few peppers we harvested this morning. We will likely donate a few of these to the local pantry because we'd only use one or two a week. Once we get some tomatoes ripe to make salsa we will really use up the peppers I am sure. The jalapeno peppers are about 2 weeks away from being the right size so hopefully the tomatoes will cooperate with that schedule so we can put up some tasty salsa!
This morning's green bean harvest. Honestly we are a little disappointed in the green bean crop this year, what we are getting is nice quality and very tasty but we've had a mole eating plants left and right and there are barely enough to supply our fresh eating needs let along enough to put up for winter. Thankfully we still have about 25 quart jars from last year so it won't take much to get us up to what we need.
Here is our first attempt at growing celery, I am pleased with the turn out. Tobers LOVES this celery and eats it all the time dipped in peanut butter.:)
Sunshine just finished cutting the cauliflower into smaller pieces for the blanching process to get it into the freezer. Looks like we got about 3-4 quart bags worth!
A pile of Sweet Banana Peppers too!
Thanks for following along on our harvest adventure this morning.
