Harvest Monday, 8/27/2012

On Thursday night, I was in complete shock.  While out in the garden, I noticed the familiar striped green shape of zucchini.  I knew the plants were still trying to flower a little, but I had no idea that any had set fruit big enough to be picked.  I did a little investigating and found 6 big zucchini and one just about ready to be picked!  To think last week I was lamenting what to do with all that zucchini!  Now with 7 more, I really have a dilemma!

My tomatoes have not been ripening well this past 2 weeks, as we hit a big of a cool-down.  The weather has been beautiful for evenings in the garden, but unfortunately my tomatoes haven't appreciated it.  The cherry tomatoes didn't seem to mind, though, and I picked several baskets of them this week.  I did pick 4 more red peppers, though, and they were delicious!

I haven't had a chance to start my fall garden yet, but I have cleared a patch where it will go.  I'm hoping to get to work during the evenings this week, or on Saturday at the latest. 

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


  1. That's a nice basket of tomatoes! I'm still getting lots of little ones too; just not many of the bigger ones yet, maybe next month

  2. That is a kind of surprise I like to see in the garden! We found a whole new jalapeno plant the other day in our flower bed - because we noticed a great big jalapeno on it. Yea!

  3. Great looking harvest. Those dang zucchini have a way so sneaking up on you don't they. I went out this morning and was surprised by two.

  4. WOW! THat's alot of zucchini for one harvest, congratulations! Tomatoes are very pretty too.
