Harvest Monday 07-09-12

It was a great week in the garden. I think this has been my largest harvest ever! This with extremely dry conditions. Yesterday and today we have received a good rain and my garden looks so happy.

I didn't get pictures of everything but here are some...

The Juliet Tomatoes are happy even with the heat and dry conditions.

The Juliets above were harvested in one day.

Lots of tomatoes make my boys and their mom happy!

I was down one day and my sweet husband harvest this for me.

The heat is causing me problems with the peppers.

I can't figure out how to rotate this picture of my Louisiana Purple Beans (which I had to shell because they stayed too long on the vine) and my Florida Speckled Butter Beans.

This was my first year to grow yellow onions. I am pleased. 
They are drying in the garage and will be weighed later.

  1. Wow! It is amazing how much you get from just a small space! Enjoy all that healthy and great tasting food. :-)

  2. Beautiful harvests. I will miss harvesting tomatoes this year, but at least I have lots of beans and onions.

    1. After you harvest your onions, what is the timeline and process to store them?

  3. Nice harvest! I'm envious of all those tomatoes. It seems like everyone is beginning to harvest lots of them, and mine aren't even giving us enough for fresh eating yet.

  4. Well, I am a little further south than you!

  5. I dont' see a thing wrong with those peppers! Everything looks great.
