Due to all the studying over the last couple of weeks, I missed Harvest Monday last week, of course. However, since the completion of the test, i've had the opportunity to get some photos of a few harvests. Since time has been scarce, the cell phone has been used to get these shots, which turned out ok, I guess.
Photo below - there's no mistaking the brown looking tomatoes - Cherokee Purple, and lots of 'em. The others are Neves Azorean Red, Brandywine, jelly bean, and Black Cherry. Even a little watermelon was harvested, and I ate this little dude by myself. It was just "ok" in flavor....
Photo below - green beans, cucumbers, okra, and jelly bean tomatoes.
Photo below - this harvest was all about the black cherry tomatoes, because they were everywhere.
Photo below - much of the same, as these items have been in abundance for quite some time now.
In other news, the crookneck squash plants aren't producing any more fruit right now, and will probably be pulled sometime this week.
There's more fruitset on watermelons, and a couple are doing really well. While positioning one the other day in its' sling, it fell to the ground and busted. That's ok, Jude ate the whole dang thing. Ha! Gosh, I hope they aren't bad for dogs.....
Another butternut squash has set fruit, and the vines are quickly overtaking the 4x9 box next to the woods. Man...i'm sure glad I tried them in there, because it's working pretty good so far!
The watermelons planted in swc's next to the sweet potatoes are fighting for space, and vines from both are beginning to inter-mingle. One thing's for certain - harvesting will be interesting when the time comes.
Take care, and happy gardening!
