Harvest Monday: 9/24/2012 Summer Produce

Unbelievable summer weather continues, I know it’s all going to end when that one cloudy grey day arrives but till them I am enjoying every minute of it.

Here’s what weekly harvest looks like –

2 bunches of Chuka

Early girl and cherry tomatoes along with green/wax beans

Yellow/purple carrots, first zucchini and regular picking of beans and tomato

My attempt at Tomato-Basil-Mozzarella, not a most appetizing photo but it was indeed very tasty.

Green/wax Beans – 26
Early Girl/Cherry Tomatoes – 15
Zucchini – 1
Colored Carrots – 4

Harvest Monday: 9/13/2012 Summer seems endless

Here’s 3 week recap of the gardening and weather events:

1 – It has been BEST summer ever. Temperatures are staying within 65-75 range, not too hot, not too cold. Sun god has been shining brightly over Puget Sound. We have had second best stretch of rain free days of Seattle – 49 days with no rain. It’s been great. Someone wouldn’t call length of rain-free days as great but for us living with cloud cover, vit D deprived, tan less people of NWesterners – It’s great. Our kids are slowly learning that color of the sky is actually blue, not grey.

2 – Summer garden is producing well. Here’s what I harvested over last 3 weeks –

5 generous full bunches of Green Sorrel – no pictures. Used one to make curry, gave away rest.

 Clockwise:  Radish pods, wax beans, bunch of fenugreek and first tomato.

 Mix of Green beans (contender, Harvester) and wax beans

More wax beans, lettuce and single small tomato

Clockwise:  Green and Wax beans from bush plants, Tomatoes early girl and dried pea pod for next year’s planting.

Happy Gardening!!
