Harvest Monday 6/18/12

The peppers are slowly starting with 1.1 oz of banana peppers (pic 1) and one little bell pepper that I should have waited on, but was too impatient at 0.7 oz (pic 4).  In the picture of the bell pepper you can see it is sitting on a tiny bit of lettuce (0.3 oz) that was hiding in the shade and promptly went on a sandwich.  The constant chard produced 8.5 oz this week (pic 3).  I stumbled upon 7.6 oz of red onions cleaning up the bed they were in, a nice surprise.  Such a surprise that I didn't take a picture of them.

The stars this week are the cucumbers (6.2 lbs).  Both the Lemon and the Persian cucumbers are producing well (pic 2 and 5).  I've been eating them fresh, but soon the pickling will begin.  Also pictured this week are some herbs: basil and parsley.  I haven't been keeping the weights on herbs this year. 

We went peach picking this week at a local orchard.  We got 14 lbs of peaches for $7!

Weekly total:  7.3 lbs
Yearly total: 74.86 lbs worth $149.31

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!


  1. Nice harvest and I love that you were able to pick peaches. I hope to freeze some up again this year. We love them frozen. Nancy

  2. Oh yum - fresh peaches how lovely. I love the look of both those cucumbers and your photo of them - really nice.

  3. Wow those are cheap peaches. Usually at the orchards here they aren't that much less than the markets. Of course we don't have many peaches here and certainly no pick your owns. Mostly it is apples.

  4. wow that was a good price on those peaches! lovely harvests this week, what kind of pickles will you make?

    1. Last year was my first time making pickles and I used the Ball dill pickle recipe. Perhaps I will try something new this year.

  5. Nice harvest, everything looks GREAT!! :)
    & Lovely picking pictures- it made me want to go visit an orchard and get some peaches.
