The biggest harvest this week was the potatoes. I decided to dig up the bed and ended up with 10.2 lbs, which isn't too shabby for 24 sq ft and with the wilting plants. The red potatoes did the best, followed by yukon gold and white kennebec produced the fewest.
I also pulled the rest of the onions (1.9 lbs), but only took a picture of a few of them:
The spring planted turnips have not liked the warm weather, so I decided to go ahead and pull them (1.5 lbs):
The old standby, chard, is still producing with no signs of bolting. I harvested 8oz of it this week:
My spring planted carrots were looking big and bushy, so I thought I would pull one to see how big they are.. the answer 0.7 oz. Guess I need to be more patient with the carrots.
I also had 0.5 oz of strawberries, but they didn't last long enough to have their picture taken. The strawberries are not producing very much and the berries are really small. Oh and I busted a squirrel inside my strawberry cage! He's chewed a hole through the netting!
I harvested 2 lbs of cucumbers this week, but was a slacker at taking pictures of them. I have two varieties this year: Persian and Lemon.
A new harvest this week is peppers. I picked two banana peppers (1.2 oz) and was impatient and picked three little bell peppers (2.6 oz).
Lastly are blackberries, which are not from my garden. Blackberries grow all over the place around here, especially on roadsides. You just have to brave the thorns and the chiggers, but they are definitely worth it!
Weekly total: 16.9 lbsYearly total: 50.63 lbs worth $138.20
