Harvest Monday (or Tuesday, in my case) 9/21/10

I haven't been able to post on time lately.  So Harvest Mondays hosted by Daphne's Dandelions are increasingly turning into Harvest Tuesdays for me!  Garden this week, is just a continuation of downhill in harvests.  I did harvest all my apples, which totaled 11 for the season.  They were earlier than usual since Sweet Sixteen apples are usually ready in Oct.  Last of the eggplants were harvested.  Possibly long beans too.  Peppers continue to amaze me.  Plants are dark green and don't show any signs of Autumn yet!  There's probably only 1 more week left before the first hard frost hits.  I'm trying to harvest as much of green chillies as possible.  Earlier in the season, I was letting it mature to red, but that won't happen anymore.  I still have a few tomatoes, a few watermelons, few green bell peppers, maybe squash, beets and beans.  I won't be able to cover them all from frost, so it's a sad goodbye.  Here's the pics for the week.

Oops!  Technically, it's tuesday today, but I've been real busy yesterday, so better late than never.......  Garden is cooling down as is the weather.  Pepper plants are going strong with dark green leaves, but everything else is on it's way out.  I've still not ripped them out, but that is going to change soon....  Here's the pics of the harvest for the past week.  Please visit Daphne's Dandelions for other postings of harvests.

Harvest Monday - Sept 06

The temps dipped this week, as a result, some plants are dead(cucumber), most are yellowing and curling.  So I've been going out into the garden every other day, which suits me just fine.  I've been busy with other things, but I still got decent quantity of veggies and some of them are in the fridge waiting to be used.  Please also visit Daphne's Dandelions who hosts harvest mondays each week.

Harvest Monday - 8/30/2010

I had a good harvest this week as well.  Things are starting to wind down in the garden, though.  Cucumber has powdery mildew and is almost at the last stages.  Lower parts of tomato plants are brown and the top is turning yellow.  Okra has started to produce now! Beans is still going strong, although the plants don't look as green as they should.   Yard long bean plants are yellowing as well.  Just a matter of few weeks, before the garden comes to an end.  It's sad to feel the end of summer, although I will have more time for everything else.  Please visit Daphne's Dandelions to see how everyone else's garden is doing.
