We harvested tomatoes, raspberries, and strawberries this week. As I was ripping up a tomato patch, we had a surprise harvest as well!
I was missing these guys 🙂 We are between harvesting beans. I ripped up the spent purple beans and the new fall green beans will be ready to be harvested this week.
I was able to spread compost one day this week, rip up some spent plants another day, then the rain came. It rained about 4 days in a row. It was very welcome; that just means not much else was done in the garden. Instead, we baked bread, made marinara sauce, and made more seed tape to plant this week (hopefully).
So the plan for this week is to:
- PLANT (carrots, beets, lettuce, spinach, kale, peas)
- Transplant more brassicas
- Spread compost (only if it dries out)
The chickens are still moulting so we’re getting about 1 egg every couple of days. Smoothies and oatmeal are where it’s at these days 😉
Check out what other gardeners are harvesting at Daphne’s Dandelions!
Those raspberries look fabulous. I’m missing my fall raspberries here. If I forget to water I don’t get any.
YUM on raspberries!
Those are some lovely raspberries. I can live on smoothies and oatmeal for breakfast at least.
Just harvested my first ever raspberries this past week & they were yum, yum! Can’t wait until the canes give us a more ample harvest, like yours.
These have been in the ground 3 falls (our second year harvesting). Better and better every year!
