Well, last week was crazy and between various obligations and a trip out of town, I had no time to update my blog! In truth, though, last week's harvest was minimal so I guess it was a good week to miss!
The biggest triumph of this past week was my zucchini harvest -- 6 big, beautiful zucchini!
I also picked 3 small red tomatoes and a handful of cherry tomatoes. Most of my tomato plants are looking good, despite the drought and horrible heat, but I noticed that one plant is producing tomatoes with really bad blossom end rot. My husband tried an organic calcium spray on them yesterday, so we'll see if it works.
Alas, my beans, which I had such high hopes for only a few weeks ago, are absolutely terrible. The heat has prevented them from producing, and all of the beautiful bean blossoms from a few weeks ago have withered away without producing many beans. The sum total of my bean harvest from five rows were a couple of handfuls.
And, finally, last but not least -- Swiss Chard! It has been the savior of this year's garden. Despite the heat and drought, my Chard plants have continued to produce nice weekly harvests.
Well, that's it for this week. Happy Harvest Monday everyone! For more great harvests, check out Daphne's Dandelions.
