Harvest Monday - July 5th 2010

We harvested more greens and herbs on Thursday:
(Top: Basil, Mint. Bottom: Romaine, Dill, Mesclun)

I was off to Cape Cod for the long weekend so did not get much gardening work done. We came back late Monday afternoon and made a quick stop at the plot so we could water everything after 3 days of 90F and higher temperatures they needed it. We were finally able to harvest some non-greens as well! We pulled the 2 surviving carrots from the poorly germinated first seeding as well as a test beet to see how things were looking:
(2 Baby Carrots & 1 Baby Beet)

Totals for the week:
Dill - 2 oz/56.70 g
Mint - .5o oz/14.17 g
Basil - .90 oz/25.51 g
Mesclun - 2.75 oz/77.96 g
Romaine - 5 oz/141.75 g
Beets - .70 oz/19.84 g
Carrots .95 oz/26.93 g
Weekly Total: 12.80 oz / 362.86 g
Season Total: 1.975 lbs/31.60 oz/895.84 g

Tomato Watch: As of 7/5/10 62 tomatoes have set fruit

Love the tomatoe watch!

I love that you have a tomato watch. The fact that you're counting all of them shows your dedication. :) I don't know about you but I'm ready for a ripe tomato. Sometimes I wish our New England weather wasn't so New England.

Allison & Thomas - Thanks to you both! I'm counting the tomatoes because I've never grown them and would like a reference point for future growing seasons. It also helps me see how quickly they set fruit as it gets hotter!
I fully agree with Thomas that I am ready for my own ripe tomatoes!

I'm surprised you still have lettuce after all the heat we have been getting. My lettuce has all bolted.

Love your baby carrots and beet. I've been wondering how my carrots are growing, too. They only have 4 inches of green top after about two months so far.
