  3. Boy Granny, that's a lot of beans!! I don't grow many beans here, only the purple pole and dry beans.

    I am so jealous that you have some strawberries. My everbearing are not bearing:( I'm sure that they will do much better next year.

  5. Wow. You had a huge week, as well. Over ten pounds of beans. I am hoping for numbers like that, next year, for beans. Also a very nice harvest on your -berries. Congratz on a good week!!

  6. Beautiful harvests. My first onion has started to fall over. I pulled it today to dry it. But really I don't have near the amount of onions that you do. You put in so many. But I think I'll have a decent harvest. I hope so. I grow mostly storing onions and they don't get nearly as big as those sweet onions do. I might grow more of the sweets next year and freeze them for the winter. I mostly use the onions in cooking anyway. It is only in salads that I need fresh onions.

  8. You can open up a store with all that harvest! That's enough food to last more than the year, and it all looks terrific.Good working.

  10. Sue, I'll trade ya for your gorgeous garden(s)!

    Thanks, Kelly. Most of it is sitting in the fridge waiting for me, as we've been eating out too much this week. I'm sure not complaining that my kids have been feeding us, LOL, It's been quite enjoyable.

    ********
    Robin, the beans have just begun! In the next couple of weeks, I'll be replanting wherever I can find the space.

    I'm just now getting a handful of sizable strawberries each day. Hopefully that's a sign they're about to take off and produce. I'm contemplating pulling them and putting in June bearing next year, depending on this year's performance.

    Thank you, Ribbit. Not as nice as previous years, but considering how Mother Nature kicked most of us in the shins this year, I'll take what I can get!

    Ben, the nice thing about summer raspberries and day neutral strawberries is, just as one is winding down the other is taking off. I have over two gallons of raspberries in the freezer for jam, now I can begin saving strawberries......after we get our fill of shortcake!

    ********
    Daphne, I really need to get some of my onions frozen. I have a lot of tiny ones (storage type) that are a pain to dice up, so they could go into the processor and be all ready for recipes. Maybe I could freeze the finely chopped ones in ice cube trays before packaging them up. That would be handy for soups and casseroles.

    ********
    Allison, there's no way I'm going to hit the 2009 and 2010 harvest weights this year, but the garden is still producing more than the two of us can eat. I just wish the tomatoes would do something!

    ********
    Ginny, come on over...I'll share! Oh, couldn't you and I have a great time together? I think we're quite compatible.

    ********
    Thanks, Random. I wish I could haul in some squash and tomatoes!

  11. Erin, did you notice my Brandywine tomato? You didn't? I think mine is a baby of yours, a preemie. At least mine didn't look like a butt :-D

  12. wow your hauling in the beans aren't ya. It all looks very good!

  13. Great harvest this week! With numbers like that you could open a store :)

  14. Shawn Ann, I'm hauling them in and planting more! It's quite fun putting them in the freezer using my new 'sack sucker sealer', LOL!

    Hello, Mrs. Pickles, and thank you!

  15. Ok, I am loving the collage pictures. Excellent idea and great harvests. Your harvest totals are going through the roof I bet.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Kris, you have to admit, two collage pictures are easier to upload than 16-18 single photos!

  17. Looking good! Your abundance of beans is making me wish for mine to produce.

  18. Lots of great stuff going on with your harvest this week but two particularly noteworthy items seems to be those onions and those green beans. Wow!

    I love the hanging basket in the kitchen with all those beautiful big sweet onions in it... gorgeous!

    Are those mostly Fortex green beans? They seem to be a really nice producer for you.

  19. Rachel, I just went out and pulled up the Royal Burgundy. They just weren't producing like the others. I planted another variety, and will plant even more tomorrow.

    ********
    Kitsap, the Fortex haven't really begun to produce yet, other than a small handful on occasion. Most of the beans have been the Gourmet Green French from Ed Hume seeds. They are really a non-stop bean machine! I have to pick them daily, and they are still loaded with tiny beans and blossoms. They're a pain to pick (literally...my back is killing me) but so worth it. This is my second year for them. They're very good flavored, but I mostly cook them for the dogs 'cause they squeak on my teeth when I eat them! That's why I love Fortex, easy to pick and no squeak.

  20. Very nice cabbage harvest. I'm glad they came through for you. I like your picture presentation this week. Everything looks so appetizing.

  21. Thanks, Jody. Most of it is either in the freezer or still in the refrigerator! I need to get in gear and cook and/or freeze.

  22. Oh your harvest looks amazing!! You are really far ahead of us in what you are harvesting.

  23. Alicia, thank you. This year's harvests are way behind what I was bringing in last year. I'm getting quite hungry for some good tomatoes and summer squash! I'm not even close to the first cucumber, either.
