Here's what my harvests have been looking like:
I harvested 3.4 lbs of cucumbers, 5 oz of white eggplant, 2 lbs of green beans, 7.4 oz of Yellow Pear tomatoes. This week brought the first of my paste tomatoes- this one is a San Marzano tomato (1.6 oz).
In this basket you can see my first big tomato for the season. It wasn't really that big, but it was the biggest of the season. It was a 3.8 oz Rutger's tomato that was quickly sliced and eaten! The peppers have also been coming in with 2 oz of banana peppers and 9.5 oz of bell peppers. However, something has been munching on my peppers... grrr!
I had another watermelon tragedy this week. Last week I accidentally broke a baby melon off the vine. This week I was checking on how the melons were doing and I found this:
I think this has squirrel written all over it! I had problems growing melons last year and the trend appears to be continuing. Actually the problem wasn't necessarily growing melons, it was getting to harvest them before the critters did!
Weekly total: 7.2 lbsYearly total: 100.45 lbs worth $191.80
