Harvest Monday - October 10, 2011

I can scarcely believe that our summer harvest season is coming to an end. I feel like we were just watching the seedlings start to grow, and now it is nearly time to get everything prepared for our winter crops. But - before we do that, we've still got a few things left to pick. We're still getting:

Tomatoes!  We've had a much better year with tomatoes this year than we did last year - and most of them are volunteers.  It's made me more enthusiastic about trying them again next summer... this time intentionally.

And watermelon!  Lots of watermelon left, though the vines seem to be losing steam.  We'll see how many we actually harvest.  We're thinking we may not plant them again next year as they take up so much space and quite frankly, the watermelon that we've been getting just isn't worth the space.

The corn however?  Definitely is!  Our second crop is coming in just now and is even better than the first one!  This is by far my favorite crop of the summer - we'll be expanding this one next year.

Total Harvest for the Week:  3 pound, 9 ounces
Total Harvest for the Year:  51 pounds, 15.6. ounces


Linked up with Daphne's Dandelion's Harvest Monday... hop on over and see what else is being picked this week.

  1. In our previous home, we had a lot of land and we were able to grown much produce. Corn was our favorite also. It is so delicious picked and cooked and of course, eaten.

  2. Your tomatoes look really nice--no rotten spots at ALL!
