The last of the Walla Walla sweet onions were cleaned for storage. I was very happy to have harvested nearly 53 pounds this year.
The potato harvest continues. I may have planted too many. Just the opposite with the carrots, as way too few were planted. I have more growing now, but it will be quite a while before they mature. Beans, beans and more beans.
I'm still getting lettuce, although this was the last picking of the spring planted crop. I have more growing in containers, and have just seeded the lettuce bed again. One of my broccoli plants, the one that gave me the huge head of broccoli, is producing quite a few really nice side shoots. Some are nearly as large as the main head on some of the other plants.
Eight pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes and my first picking of Fortex pole beans. The Yukon Golds are really a nice size this year.
The last of the Yukon Gold potatoes from bed #1. There is still another small bed of YGs left to dig. The last of the spring planted bush beans were harvested, and the plants were pulled. With red tomatoes beginning to ripen, I picked one last container of Minigolds and then pulled the plants. I'm just very tired of little yellow tomatoes at this point.
Another picking of Fortex pole beans. They got off to a slow start, but look promising now. I'm so happy to finally be getting some red tomatoes!
This nearly 1-1/2 pound Spacemaster cucumber was hiding from me! Mr. Granny said it was still sweet.
I'm not getting huge amounts of strawberries, but they are coming on steady. We're getting our fill of strawberry shortcake, with berries left over for freezing.
Two trips to the potato patch brought in another 16-plus pounds of Russet potatoes.
I had to wash the two largest potatoes so I could show them off. One weighed 14.4 ounces, the other weighed 14.7 ounces. The small ones will be used right away, and the others, in the box, will be stored.
The small ones are first picking of Isis Candy tomatoes. I ate one, and it was so very sweet and good tasting, I couldn't help myself. I ate them all. That's another side shoot from the good broccoli plant. I sure wish I knew what variety it is! I found three big summer squash that had been missed, so they had to go into the compost bin and not get counted in my harvest total. Luckily, I spotted these three that are of a good, edible size. The plants are so huge it's hard to find the squash hiding in them.
