Harvest Monday 8/30-9/5 2011

Please note this blog is no longer updated. (Click here to find my new blog address).

Tomatoes, Yukon gold potatoes, green bell peppers, zucchini, basil, artichoke (for seeds), millet(for beer), parsley, bay, thyme, savory, and little hot red peppers (we were told that the plant was a jalapeno...obviously not).

More tomatoes

More zucchini, the big one went to the girls(chickens).

More tomatoes...we put a table into the garage so we would have more room for tomatoes. I did not even put all the pictures of tomatoes because they are boring after a few pictures.

Today is our anniversary and we are spending it mostly in the garden. We both really enjoy it and since our babysitter is away for the weekend we are not able to go out and celebrate. Most of the time we are disappointed by dinner out in our small town dinner at home will be perfect.

Yesterday we made sauce as usual but we also tried our hand at making bloodymary mix and it came out really good. That will be the next thing we perfect since we already have the spicy beans recipe perfect. We also spent a lot of time weeding and making room for the fall/winter garden.

We ended up planting a fourth planting of yukon gold potatoes and filled the one raised bed we have with a little bit of deertounge lettuce, red romaine, red kale, red chard, claytonia, mache, and spinach. We planted some purple snap peas next to our second crop of Missouri bill's pole beans and found the first bean! Today we want to get more things started for the fall/winter garden and then relax in the pool.

Enjoy your labor day everyone!

We are linking up with Daphne's dandelions for Harvest mondays...check out other awesome harvests.

Happy Anniversary! We also usually end up a bit dissappointed with our adventures in eating out locally.

The tomatoes are beautiful and those of us that grow in a cool maritime climate would be delighted to be swimming in them and having too many to take pictures of. :D
