Harvest Monday

September 8, 2014

I have not been very good about taking pictures of harvests this week.

We harvested about 15 unpictured cucumbers, a couple of unpictured peppers, and a number of unpictured tomatoes πŸ˜‰

Here is what we DID take a picture of:DSC_5383Our second, and last, butternut squash, one cucumber, and a number of tomatoes.

I went ahead and harvested all of our watermelons from the watermelon patch and cleaned it up. DSC_5430(This area was COVERED in watermelon vines previously)

In all, we harvested 10 watermelons. I’m not sure the few little ones are completely ripe but everything was dying so…

All of these watermelons were from ONE volunteer plant! Quite a pleasant surprise πŸ™‚DSC_5406The raspberries are still trickling in…DSC_5413I have a question for raspberry growers. Most of the raspberries look like this on one side… DSC_5414It’s like they didn’t pollinate everywhere? Any suggestions?

What are you harvesting? Check out what other gardeners are doing at Daphne’s Dandelions πŸ™‚

    Well white druplets are a matter of debate. Many think it is caused by high temperatures and bright sun. So sunscald of a type. I’ve heard that lack of iron can be a problem. And I’ve heard that insects can cause it (but that type is usually individual druplets and not patches). Some varieties are more prone than others too.

    I agree with Daphne, I think high temps and sun are a factor. Blackberries do the same thing. I haven’t seen that on our raspberries, but it happens all the time on the blackberries. I hope the watermelons are tasty!
