Harvest Monday

September 22, 2014

This week, I planted more carrots, onions, and lettuce and spent a large chunk of the week weeding where some bermuda grass is creeping through. I am noticing a big ant problem in our garden and it seems they are stealing quite a bit of my seeds. What to do about that…

Harvests this week included…raspberries, carrots, tomatoes, and peppers. Oh, we’re also getting about 1-2 eggs/day.DSC_5486Most of the white spots/sunscald spots are gone. DSC_5488

We harvested about this much 3x this week but only managed to take one picture. Between these raspberries and the watermelon harvested earlier this month, our fruit bill is looking good 🙂

The only tiny patch of carrots that has managed to come up for me this summer was harvested this week. I was having camera issues mid-week. I apologize. Seeing how this was my only patch that grew (out of the 20 or so I planted), I am posting the picture anyway. What is up with my seeds not sprouting!?!DSC_5483

The tomatoes are slowing way down on production but the peppers are picking up! I thought we had bad pepper plants but it turns out, I think, it’s just that peppers give their flush of fruit later than tomatoes.DSC_5489

On my list of TO DOs this week:

  • Make marinara (ran out of the batch made a month ago)
  • Make bread
  • Make wipes
  • Cook & freeze pinto beans, black beans, and chickpeas (why do we have to run out of everything all at once?)
  • Potty train the 2yo 😛

Who wants to help…with any of those…? 😉
