Anyway, enough whining about the weather and on to the harvests! I pulled another carrot (2.4 oz), which was thicker than the last one, but not very long. I'm trying to decide whether to go ahead and pull the carrots or leave them. The heat is definitely not making for a sweet carrot.
Also this week I harvested 3.9 lbs of cucumbers. Mostly the lemon cucumbers have been producing while the Persian cucumbers are looking sad and pathetic. The heat may have been the last blow to the tired looking cucumber plants.
Last was a harvest of green beans (1.3 lbs). The green beans have grown to the top of the trellis, which is ten feet tall. I obviously wasn't thinking about harvesting when putting in 10 ft trellises because I can't even reach the top with my little step stool! In an attempt to pick beans and climb a not too sturdy trellis, I had a watermelon tragedy. I accidentally broke off a baby watermelon (bottom left in the pictures)! I cut it open and it was still completely white on the inside... sad.
I was hoping to reach 100 lbs this week, but not quite there. June was a productive month, by far the most productive month this year with 45 lbs. Hopefully the next few months can be just as productive.
Weekly total: 7.73 lbsYearly total: 93.24 lbs worth $179.47
