Default What are you harvesting now?

I couldn't find the thread to talk about what vegetables grew well this year and what you're harvesting. If I just overlooked it please just point me in the right direction.

In the meantime I finally have a few vegetables I can eat -3 cherry tomatoes, a few handfuls of green beans, at least 6-7 round yellow cucs.

Kale is ever-present and the garlic is picked and hung to dry and ready to use.

Small pickings compared to others I know but it's all the space I have left.

What's your harvest like ?
What worked well, what do you recommend for next year?

I planted alot of my vegetables in pots so I could fit them in and keep the seedlings clear of weeds easily.
In the past when I've used pots on soil eventually the roots just found the drainage hole and grew right into the soil underneath the pot so I got a bigger plant, especially tomatoes.

Gallons and gallon of blackberries up over my feet, my knees, my belly, my chest, my neck, my mou---

And when I get done - if I ever do
And if I get the stain out from around my cuticles- if I ever do


I must have a discussion about just how wrong it is to use the Scottish symbol "William Wallace (FREEDOM)" -- and how it must be changed to - Symplocarpus

Earlier in the year I was harvesting asparagus, then peas (I like them raw, straight from the pod), lettuce, and most recently zucchini. It was ready just in time; we made zucchini appetizer to take to a party we went to today--well, Jeff made it, but I did grate it...*and* grow it!

I'll have to remember, next time, to quickly add, "but I grew the zucchini" when asked who made it.

All I'm getting now is cucumbers and cantaloupe. There are lots of herbs out there, but I grow them more than I use them.

Lettuce, spinach, chives and herbs are all I've harvested so far.
I must make a trek out back and see if I've any zucchini or cukes yet.

'Purple Top' turnips, 'Acadia' Broccoli.... I'm really liking this variety.... nice big heads and... it wasn't fast to bolt on me. Over the weekend I harvested 'Kentucky Wonder' green beans and 'Tall Telephone' Peas..... before that I harvested 'Progress #9' peas. Blueberries and raspberries are coming in strong.... some strawberries here and there but I think the brunt of what there was to take in is over. Some apples should be ready in about a month.... same thing with peaches and some pears. I'm thinking I'm going to have a bumper crop of pears this year. Apricots did a dive bomb because we got a "cold snap" when they were blooming this spring.

Nice crop Equil. I really like the look of your turnips.

My lettuce is kind of stalled (lots of little leaves no real heads forming) and now the cucumber vines and kale that were shading the lettuce a little have taken over the area.
Still waiting for the green beans to get large enough to produce.
