Harvest Monday - Oct 3, 2011

I did not post anything at Daphne's Dandelions last week, as I didn't have much to report gardenwise.  I will combine last week's one or two pics in this post.  We finally got around to picking apples from the trees for two reasons - wasps were having a field day eating up fragrant apples and plenty of ripe ones were falling off the tree!  There were approximately 50+ Honeycrisp and 60+Sweet 16s this year.  Our basement is now smelling heavenly!!  I have left just a few on the trees, as they didn't come off easily, guess they need more time.  We gave away some to neighbors and friends and will eat the rest as fresh apples.  When refrigerated, they will last several weeks and Honeycrisp will last about 6 months.  So that's where they are currently stored :)

Not pictured - yellow/red raspberries eaten off the bushes and white radishes, 2 of them over a feet long but nice and tender.
