6/18 - The first cabbage, a dwarf variety that weighed nearly two pounds. The last of the spring planting of shelling peas and the first crookneck squash of the season.
6/18 - Minigold cherry tomatoes are being picked about three times a week now. One of the plants was badly damaged in this week's wind, so it was pulled. There are still two plants in the garden and one on the patio. As soon as the main season tomatoes begin to bear, I'll probably eliminate two more of the Minigolds, as they give me too many tomatoes! One plant of these is more than enough for the two of us. We're getting plenty of raspberries for fresh eating now. I doubt I'll be getting enough for jam, but I'm hoping. Decent strawberry harvests are still about a month away.
6/18 - A big basket of (I think) Little Gem Romaine lettuce, all ready at once. I was surprised to find two mature cucumbers on the Spacemaster vines.
6/18 - Here it is all washed, with earwig damaged leaves removed. This bunch (20.1 ounces) from the triangle garden, had very little damage. It was the sweetest, crispest lettuce!
6/19 - Some of the small Walla Walla sweet onions that had flopped over were cleaned and refrigerated for immediate use. The last of the snap peas were picked, and the vines removed to make room for a final planting of Fortex pole beans.
6/20 - Raspberries, another croockneck squash, more Minigold tomatoes and a bouquet of sweet peas. I'm loving the sweet peas, with their lovely scent, on my desk next to the computer.
6/22 - The first head of broccoli, the last of the carrots from the nematode infested bed, zucchini and Russet Norkotah potatoes for baking. Oh, my...they were good! Most of the celery has bolted to seed, but I'm still getting enough for our salads and for cooking from the plants that remain.
6/23 - Nine more heads of Little Gem Romaine and one of Iceberg lettuce, after the earwig damaged leaves were removed. We got the hearts of the lettuce, the earwigs got the rest.
6/23 - This is what the earwigs ruined from those ten heads of lettuce, a 2-gallon bucket full. The compost bin got more than we did.
6/23 - A good sized harvest of broccoli, 1.7 pounds for the freezer.
6/23 - Raspberries for breakfast, a mouthful of strawberries that weren't even weighed.
6/24 - I was stealing potatoes from under the plants, can't you tell?
6/24 - More than 7-3/4 pounds of Yukon Gold and Dark Red Norlands were in that bucket. I only planted four pounds of seed potatoes, and I've already harvested more than 25 pounds by just feeling around under the plants. I was hoping for 10 pounds per seed potato, but I'll certainly exceed that amount....by quite a lot, I think! The largest Red Norland weighed 6.8 ounces, and the largest Yukon Gold weighed 7.2 ounces.
6/24 - Leaf lettuce, zucchini and two of the cured onions from the garage.
6/24 - And more Minigold tomatoes. That's more than a pound of them this week, and they're not even producing in high gear yet!
