Harvest Monday August 9th 2010

A great week weather wise! The tomatoes are coming in full force. Here is a nice picture of some of sundays harvest:

The beautiful bouquet of sunflowers was part of the harvest. We also finally got a few Scarlet Nantes carrots that had reached a good size! The hungarian pepper was just starting to turn from yellow to a more orange, it was picked to add a little zing to a homemade pasta sauce.
Last week we had eeked out 4 cranberry beans, but this week they really came strong! Each trip to the garden resulted in more beans being harvested:
Harvest totals for this week:
3.77 lbs Tomatoes
8 oz Basil
5.45 oz Cranberry Beans
2 oz Carrots
1.10 oz Wax Pepper
Weekly Total: 4.80 lbs/2.177 kg
Seasonal Total: 16.198 lbs/7.347 kg
Harvest Totals have been updated.

Nice harvest Fred! The beans look good. Kinda like one I have growing except it has a pink body instead of white.

I think dried beans are just the prettiest thing to harvest and then display in jars until needed. The variety of colors and sizes is very appealing. Looks like you are getting a nice basil harvest. Ours has been stalled out due to cool weather all summer - we warmed up for a week and it started to really grow again but then it cooled down immediately and I am back to unhappy basil plants. I hope I get something harvested from them before the season is concluded!

Pretty beans. I so love the look of dried beans.

Great harvest and beautiful cranberry beans! Did you make more pesto with your basil, or perhaps another creative use of this herb?

I gave up on my soup beans, and started eating them as green beans instead...just not able to grow enough to make a pot of beans, lol. Yours look delish!
