Harvest Monday 07/29/13

Harvest Monday. Visit Daphne's Dandelions to see what everyone is getting this week.

The Wife and I went to the Farmer's Market Saturday. Sadly we ended up buying tomatoes there and came home to can and can. Boy they were nice, big Romas. We ended up with another 12 pints of pasta sauce and 11 pints of salsa. With the state of the garden this year due to the all of the rain we had to do more to store away for the winter. But it seemed that the main growers around the area were having just as much trouble as we were. Beans are somewhat of a scarcity too, even on our half acre.

Spent the better part of Sunday out in the garden cleaning, weeding, and pulling. I ended up pulling out 6 tomato plants total. Shame but that's the type of year it's been. But I did get a surprise that I wasn't expecting.

A cucumber! Few and far between this year. Peppers? Have those. 

Flowers have finally started looking good in the sunshine.

Had some help when I was plowing up the big patch for fall planting. Just stopped by and hung around for a while. No collar or anything. We were going to take it to a vet but it was gone later in the evening. I did get some turnips and mustard planted in the plot and have a bunch more starting in their pots. 

Not a big harvest this week but it is slowing down this time of year. 5.85 lbs. 

Hope to have more later this week. Had migraine all day and computer about dead.
