Harvest Monday July 2th 2011

After the serious heatwave this week, heading to the garden yesterday morning it felt positively balmy at 85 degrees! I did some overdue weeding of the front of our plot, including pulling an old 6 foot long water pipe from the ground.
We also pulled our zucchini plants because we were not able to get any zucchini due to the pesky rabbits eating any fruit that set. Our bush beans, and now our pole bean have similar problems. I may have to give up on the pole beans altogether if they keep getting attacked so ravenously. We also harvested what was left of the remaining mesclun greens and pulled the rest for the compost pile.
Not everything was terrible though, we took home a nice variety of peppers, some chives a few baby carrots and more!
Here is a look at this weeks harvest:
Carrots: 1.00 oz
Chives: 8.00 oz
Huckleberry: 6.85 oz
Mesclun Greens: 1.50 oz
Mint: 0.35 oz
Oregano: .50 oz
Pepper (Bell): 7.85 oz
Pepper (Gypsy): 5.65 oz
Pepper (Wax): 2.00 oz
Sage: .50 oz
Total for this week: 2.1375 lbs (34.20 oz)
Total for the season: 9.51 lbs (152.20 oz)

That is great for the peppers! I have never had a Huckelberry - that is so neat you have harvested them!

Sorry about the rabbit damage. I had a bunny that wiped out my strawberry patch earlier this year. It is growing back but it ruined any prospects of strawberries for us this season. Have you thought about fencing your garden with chicken wire (buried slightly) to keep the rabbits out?

Sorry to hear about those darn rabbits. I'm with Laura, is there any way to portect the plants with chicken wire? In the past, I have taken chicken wire and made a little shelter and put it over individual plants to keep out the rabbits.

Happy to hear that no all was lost and you got some peppers, chives and carrots harvested.

Nasty bunnies. So far we haven't seen them in our yard. My garden is fenced, but I'm guessing if they try hard they could get in since the fencing is more decorative.
