Harvest Monday 8/6/12

I missed last week's harvest Monday, so today I have two weeks to report. The theme over the past two weeks has been tomatoes, melons, and green beans.. oh my!

The tomatoes have slowed down a bit.  I'm hoping they're just taking a break and will pick up the pace because I want more sauce and roasted tomatoes.  I can't seem to get enough and I'm plotting how I can have two beds of tomatoes next year. 

The little melon in the picture is a honeydew.  The vine died so it wasn't going to get any bigger.

Despite its small size, it was ripe and yummy on the inside:

I harvested lots of beans (4 lbs).  They've been producing since the end of June and seem to keep on going.  I also harvested some cucumbers, eggplant, squash, peppers, and a sugar baby melon- keeping my fingers crossed that this one is sweet and ripe.

Here's the two week tally:

Carrots 0.6 oz
Cucumber 1.96 lbs
Tromboncino squash 1.04 lbs
Banana peppers 1.7 oz
Bell pepper 1.88 lbs
Yellow pear tomatoes 2.24 lbs
Eggplant 1.01 lbs
Green beans 4.18 lbs
Watermelon 3.95 lbs
Tomatoes 5.05 lbs
Honeydew 1.06 lbs

Two week total: 22.51 lbs

Yearly total: 157.15 lbs worth $272.65

That's all the harvests coming from my garden this week, to see what others are harvesting check out Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions.

Happy Gardening!
