Harvest Monday 10/18-10/24 2011

Please note this blog is no longer updated.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


Our first(and only) pumpkin, this week 3 more started...but most likely they will not ripen.

Red winter kale

We had kale four times this week, spinach once and a few romaine salads. The pumpkin plant finally decided to try and create pumpkins but I think it is to late for them to actually become pumpkins. At least we got one, our son will happily crave it (pictures will follow). We are also now getting 1-2 eggs a day, still a bit confused why only two of our girls are laying but oh well.

We had a little mishap this week and decided to have a giveaway in honor of it. Tomorrow I will post a pic and all you have to do is guess what is is, then you might be the lucky winner of a pack of assorted seeds. Check out our blog tomorrow for more info! We are linking up with daphnes dandelions for harvest Monday! Happy (harvest) Monday!

I love kale and would be very happy with that pumpkin as well. Good job.

Growing Pumpkins is a real challenge for us. We try every year with only limited success. I'm taking the master gardener class right now maybe when we get to vegetables I will work the instructor over for more info on pumpkins. There's a great site called pumpkin nook that has some really go info.

That kale looks fantastic, that's a variety we haven't tried yet, where did you get the seeds?

This was our first try at pumpkins and we purchased the start kind of late and we also put it in a kind of weird spot. Thanks for the info and the pumpkin website...next year! We get most all of our seeds from http://redwoodseeds.net/. They are pretty close to where we live and everything We plant from them comes up. The kale we got from them is called red winter kale (brassica napus).

I so want some chickens and a little chicken coop. Don't know how well the neighbors will take it though.

Just talk with them about the chickens and promise to get enough chickens so that they will get free eggs! We have an extra large coop that we clean out a lot to make sure it doesn't get stinky! Our girls can be a little loud after they lay an egg (I think they are proud of themselves) but its not to much to bother the neighbors. :)
