Harvest Monday 6/24/13

Our house is finally finished and we moved most of our stuff this weekend!  It is very exciting to actually be living here and have some time to take care of the new garden.  It has been neglected, but I'm still glad I took the time to get some things planted this spring.  I just couldn't imagine not growing veggies this summer.

Today I spent unpacking box after box.  I always think I don't have that much stuff.. until I move!  I took a break to check out the garden and take the pup for a walk.  This is my first harvest Monday from the new garden: turnips.  With all the chaos of moving and trying to maintain two gardens, the weighing and keeping track of harvests has fallen to wayside and that would require knowing which box my scale is hiding in!

Roasted turnips will be the first thing I cook in my new kitchen!  Hopefully this new kitchen will cook lots and lots of veggies from the garden over the years.

The only other harvest I have, I did not grow.  During our walk through the woods and down the road I came across some ripe blackberries. Yum!!

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.


  1. Oh yum ripe blackberries. I've thought about going out and picking the wild blueberries. But the wild ones are so small and it takes hours to get any decent amount, plus the time tracking down the plants. I know in general where I would go but the place is huge.

  2. Wishing you all the best in your new home. I am sure you will be cooking lots and lots of veggies from your garden in your new kitchen.

  3. Good looking blackberries ans enjoy your turnips! Soon you will have lots of veggies growing. Good luck unpacking! Nancy
