Harvest Monday August 29th 2011

The trickle of tomatoes and peppers kept rolling along this week as we had a few decent sized harvests. We also harvested the first few french breakfast radishes which you can see poking out of the bowl of jalapenos in the lower left hand corner of the above photo.
Here is a look at our full harvest for the week:
Jalapeno Peppers - 8.35 oz
Cubanelle Peppers - 3.65 oz
Gypsy Peppers - 7.85 oz
Bell Peppers - 1.47 lbs (23.65 oz)
Wax Peppers - 12.00 oz
Tomato - 2.92 lbs (46.80 oz)
Radish - 1.85 oz
Rosemary - .45 oz
Sage - 1.0 oz
Basil 3.0 oz
Total for the week: 6.787 lbs (108.6 oz)
Total for the season: 30.58 lbs (489.40 oz)
Almost halfway to last year's harvest total!! I am curious to see how close we come to last years total- I guess only time will tell.

With the high winds, tons of rain, and threat of damage from hurricane Irene we will see what next weeks harvest entails. We are also planning to redo the exterior fence around our garden next weekend.

The peppers look great.

Lots of lovely peppers and so many varieties too. We struggle to get peppers to maturity in our cooler area - so I am always attracted to nice harvests of various peppers like yours.
