Harvest Monday, 8/13/2012

The cherry tomatoes have finally peaked.  As much as I love the, I have to say that I was relieved when this week's total harvest was only a little over a pint. Abundant harvests of cherry tomatoes have been replaced by Roma, Mortgage Lifter, and Rutgers.  They have all finally started to ripen in great numbers and I was able to can 8 pints.

As you can see in the photo above, hiding among the tomatoes, I also harvested 4 more zucchini this week.  The zucchini patch is definitely on its way out, but it looks like I will get a few more zucchini this season.

My red peppers are finally starting to ripen and I harvested 7 this week!  I don't have a photo of all 7, but these are the larger ones.
On Saturday, I dug up my potato plants.  I got a pretty nice harvest, although not as many potatoes per plant as past years.

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


  1. You can never have too many tomatoes...surely.....well actually as I have a tendency to not get round to preserving everything when I should I do understand the relief that breaks in harvesting brings.

  2. Beautiful red peppers! I don't usually have the patience to leave mine on the plant long enough to turn red like that. Maybe this year. Your tomatoes look wonderful too!
