  2. Wow, that's a nice harvest. I'm still waiting for most of mine to come up. So far I have one carrot showing and no beetroot yet. My potatoes are doing well up top, have no idea how they are doing down below yet. Keep up the good work, veg is so much better when you grow it yourself.

    1. Liz, Once the garden finally started growing, it really took off. We've had colder than usual weather, so I'm happy to be getting this many vegetables already.

  9. Oh that looks so good. It makes me wish I could eat potatoes. My carrots are a couple of weeks away still.

    1. Daphne, I don't think I could stand it if I had to give up potatoes. That would be even harder than giving up Mr. Granny! ;-)

  10. Gorgeous harvest. I envy you being able to grow celery. That is one plant that is a no-go in the South!

    1. Kris, I keep a spreadsheet and enter every harvest.

    2. I do the same thing, but I just keep a running tally of totals. I don't enter the individual harvest dates. I just create a new spreadsheet each garden season.

    3. Kris, I have them for the years 2010, 2011 and 2012, but I have been doing Harvest Monday since 2009 so I can go back to those posts and see what my total was at (or near) that same date.

  12. That is a lot of color, Gran. Do you plant your garden out based on artistic leanings? ;)

    Your red potatoes look nearly the same color as our red silver beet Chard.

    Oh yesterday we harvested a couple gold beets. Oh my. They are so much sweeter fresh pulled aren't they!

    1. Aren't those potatoes pretty, Stay @ Home? See what you're missing by not "stealing" some of yours? Bwahahaha.

      I love fresh young beets. Try them roasted, they're even sweeter!

  13. that lettuce looks so familiar! I guess I can stop photographing mine and just link up to yours.

    Everything else looks great as usual. I really do need to plant snap peas next year.

    1. Ed, we could compare lettuce pictures, and whoever has the best ones that photo gets used. Like you said, it all looks the same!

      I love snap peas in stir fry. I hope the ones I'm freezing are as good as the fresh ones, or at least as good as store bought frozen ones.

    1. Thank you, Rachel. It is nice to be getting something other than lettuce now, although the lettuce is more than welcome too!

  16. Your harvest pics always look like a well run green grocer! So much abundance and variety this week. I cannot get over how big a bulb you already have on those onions and when did you plant those potatoes!?

    1. Thank you, Kitsap. I planted the potatoes between March 13-15.

  17. An amazing harvest you have there, AG! Home grown potatoes are such a treat. I can't wait for my next crop. And look at all those snap peas and onions! I'm in awe of what you have produced. It seems like such a short time ago that you were enveloped by snow. I'm so impressed.

    1. Nina, I am always amazed at how fast a garden begins to produce, even after 50 years of gardening!

  18. I'm late to the party! What BEAUTIFUL photos, AG. So colorful. Now that's something to make me smile. You're harvests are quite bountiful! I'm so envious I could scream (if I didn't think you were so sweet!)
