Harvest Monday 7/15/13

I have been visiting family in Tennessee all this week, so just a few harvests to report that I picked before I left.  The biggest excitement this week was the first squash and zucchini of the year.

I also got two pretty good sized peppers, although I need to stop being impatient and let their colors develop before picking them.

The first two yellow squash are a bit small, but I had to pick them before I left or they would be monstrous by the time I got back!  I also harvested the first round zucchini and some tomatoes.  What tomatoes I have are cracking from all the rain.

Usually I have squash vine borer problems, but so far this year I haven't seen any signs of them.  It may be that they are late this year because it has been cooler than normal or it may be that they haven't found the new garden yet.  Either way, I'm happy and hoping the vine borers stay away!

I'm heading home tomorrow and I'm excited to see what I have waiting for me in the garden!

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. Very nice squashes and tomatoes, and you got first peppers! We had few banana but no large ones yet.

  2. Very nice squash and tomatoes! And a pepper already! I'm having a very bad time with squash, no red tomatoes yet and my peppers are still too small to harvest, so I really admire what you've harvested this week!

  3. Nice zucchini, squash, peppers and tomatoes! I read to plant radishes with your squash so have been doing that with the winter squash and so far so good. Got my first zucchini too! Nancy

  4. Very nice harvest. I'm jealous of the peppers, ours are just starting to bloom so we won't see any for a month or more.

  5. Great variety building up here! Everything looks wonderful, but I am especially excited about your peppers! I agree that it's hard to let their colors develop, and sometimes you just have to pick 'em! ;-)

  6. Hope you continue to avoid the vine borers. Even split tomatoes are a much more appetising prospect that the flavourless rubbish available here at the moment.
