Harvest Monday October 4th 2010

The last of the peppers for the season were harvested this week, as were the last of the potatoes. Things are winding down now that autumn is upon us, but the harvests are still coming! Along with the last of the potatoes I pulled a rather large leek on sunday afternoon:
The leek weighed a little over 3/4 of a pound

Harvest for this week:
Potato 1.623 lbs
Bush Beans 4.55 oz
Dry Beans 1.15 oz
Wax Pepper 4.45 oz
Bell Pepper 1.2 lbs
Garlic Chives .50 oz
Leek 12.45 oz
Weekly Total: 4.26 lbs/1.932 kg
Seasonal Total: 56.63 lbs/25.687 kg

If you want to see what others are harvesting or share in your own bounty, stop by Daphne's Dandelions the home of Harvest Monday.

Probably won't be much of a harvest this coming week as the weather calls for rain and I am off to Nashville at the end of the week. Before Nashville though, I'll be writing up the the local food festival and reading up on planting garlic and over-wintering leeks and some more general garden stuff. I still have more bush beens, herbs, radishes, some lettuce, a leek, kale and hopefully some walking onions too look forward too before the growing season is completely over!

Nice harvest. That leek looks great. I planted garlic this week. I generally just stick the cloves in the ground about 4 to 6 inches apart.

It looks great Fred, keep up the good work. Any frost yet?

Your leek is a nice size. It's going to be a while before mine are that big. It will be a nice treat for the cold weather though.

I have yet to plant my garlic. My beds are still occupied by other veggies.

That is a gorgeous specimen of a leek. I love them and have skipped growing them two years in a row - it's time I got them back into the growing rotation for 2011.

Wow that is one beautiful leek. I never get them that nice so far up the stem.

Agree with others, what an impressive looking leek! I hope it was tasty!

Thanks for all the comments regarding my Leek everyone! It was as delicious as it looked!

No frost yet TYRA, a little early for frost in these parts, but I would guess are first frost will come in the next 3 weeks or so.
