For me it’s Harvest Tuesday. Baby needs a new pair of shoes so I have to force myself to spend less time on all things garden related and concentrate more on getting some work done. But I couldn’t miss out on Harvest Monday since I can shamelessly show off my little harvests. So here’s mine. (no tally today as I haven’t taken the time to put in the numbers).
A couple brandywine tomatoes, a couple Big Bertha peppers, one squash, some cherry tomatoes. The full sized tomatoes came from the Early Girl plant. I took most of them off so I could harvest them before the squirrels got another one. Horrible little beasts!!!
One jalapeno pepper, okra pods, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, squash, a few yard long beans and the first beans from the newest planting of bush beans.
A few kale, collard and brussles sprout leaves, one okra pod, one brandywine tomato, one early girl tomato, cherry tomatoes and…
…MY FIRST CANTALOUPE/MUSKMELON
This is the first melon to set. I was walking past and noticed that the melon was on the yellow side. When I went to pick it, the stem had already come apart from the melon. It was perfect. So sweet and the juices were almost as thick as syrup. I hope the others are half as good as this one.
