Harvest Recap for the Week of September 2 - September 8
I harvested a lot of cherry tomatoes this week but didn't photograph them all. Most of the tomatoes were made into juice, two quarts for Son Scott and two quarts for us. I put 1-1/2 gallons of sliced sweet peppers in the freezer, but I gave away all of the green beans, summer squash and broccoli to the two sons. I personally consumed both of the parsnips, and they were delicious. The last of the summer carrots were pulled, except for a very few small ones. This year's carrot harvest was disappointing. I hope my fall planted carrots have time to mature. This was the last week for summer squash and zucchini, as the plants were all pulled. It was probably the last week for strawberries as well, as they are now rotting before they ripen. I've been moving a few plants, so maybe I will still get a few decent berries once they get some air circulation.
So far 16 butternut squash (57 pounds) have been harvested. We ate one and gave Son John two.
Total for week: 67 pounds
Total year to date: 748 pounds
