Harvest Monday 7/9/2012

Ah, another week and another set of challenges.  In the midst of a string of 100+ degree days, our air conditioning went out.  Great timing.  So, we packed up and spent most of the week at my parent's house.  It is good to finally be home.

With all the hassle of going back and forth between homes to tend the garden, I didn't get a chance to take pictures of everything I harvested this week.  That included 4 zucchini, 12 cherry tomatoes, 3 small Bloody Butcher tomatoes, one serving of Swiss Chard, and another small harvest of green beans.

Shown below are one of the zucchini, along with a few of the tomatoes.

And finally, my long-awaited baby cucumbers!  Aren't they cute?!

To see more great harvests, check out Daphne's Dandelions.


  1. Very nice zucchini. Nice tomatoes too. I could not imagine our AC going out this past week. I would have gone on a trip somewhere too!

  2. That zucchini is huge! What kind is it? Did you weigh it?

    1. It is Strata d' Italia - my first time growing it and I am in love! I don't own a kitchen scale yet, so alas no weighing, but I would guess about 2 pounds.

  3. Beautiful zucchini and tomatoes!

  4. what a pretty harvest! What a pain to have to go back and forth between to places. That sort of thing sure is hard.

  5. Oh you poor thing, I can't believe your a/c went out in the middle of the heat wave! I hope your garden came through ok and your a/c is back in action.

  6. Cute lil buggers! Life without A/C is difficult, you are lucky to have your parents nearby!
