Harvest Monday: August 20, 2012

This week we had some beautiful tomatoes.  

Just not very many, or very big.  Still, tomatoes.  And they made a lovely accompaniment to our dinner!

And we picked a peck of pickled peppers....

Oh wait, that wasn't us.  We did pick a variety of lovely hot peppers (and one sweet banana pepper...) so we can't complain!

We're also still pulling in lots of strawberries (yum) and we've been finding fun ways to use them (YUM!).  And a few ears of corn too, though I think we'll be having a lot this week.  The latest squirrel casualty is the basil.  Ugh.  We've got a live-trap though, so hoping he'll relocate soon.

Total Harvest for the Week: 3 pounds, 9.8 ounces
Total Harvest for the Year: 40 pounds, 14.7 ounces

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

Pin It


  1. Those are some beautiful tomatoes and peppers! Love all those colors!

  2. I love the picture of your peppers in the jar. I may have to pin that one. :)

  3. Nice harvest! I picked some peppers this week too...but not a peck of peppers. I'm gonna pickle them and can them.

  4. Such a pretty platter of sliced tomatoes, I can almost taste the sweet sun ripened flavor.

  5. great harvest; those chopped tomatoes look like my lunch today; tomatoes, garlic, basil on sourdough bread!
