Monday's Harvest Post

Daphne is hosting a "Monday Harvest" event every week so everyone can share their harvests. It sounds like a great idea to me so I thought I would participate this week with what I have harvest over the last week. All you have to do is post on your harvest and then enter your blog name & ulr on her blog so everyone can check it out.

Here is the first tomatoes & cucumber of the season harvested last Wednesday.

This is today's harvest. Three cucumbers, some new potatoes, one pink berkley tie dye tomato, two jimmy nardello peppers and swiss chard from Daphne.

The last thing harvested this week was this pink fleshed variegated lemon. It has been growing on my potted lemon tree for a year now. Not sure what I am going to do with it yet, any ideas?


  1. Well gee if I had that lemon I would have put it in the raspberry sorbet I made this afternoon. But this evening I think a cosmo would be in order. My husband would disagree and go with tea.

    Those tomatoes look wonderful. I don't have any big ones yet. This is the year of the small tomato for me. They grow so much better for me than the big ones. This year I only have one variety of slicing tomato. It is close to starting to color up. I can tell by its sheen, but it isn't quite there yet.

    My cukes aren't quite there yet either. They keep turning yellow and falling off :<. I think one has set though so I'm thinking soon.

    Love the chard but then I have to right?

  2. You know what they say, Dan. If life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Gorgeous harvest pictures, by the way. I need a nice harvest basket!

  3. Wow! What a harvest! And so far north...You've got the touch. So nice to find your blog.

  4. I'm not sure what you should do with your pretty lemon, but would you please take a photo when you slice it? I can't wait to see what colour it is inside. :)
    Thanks for your blog x

  5. Make a lemon vodka squeezer! A handful of ice, a pinch of sugar, enough vodka to cover the ice and all the lemon juice your lip pucker can stand. Shake the hell out of it until well blended and enjoy the fruits (I crack myself up) of your labor.

  6. Lemon water of course!

  7. Lemon curd. One of my favorite "lemon" confections.

    The harvest is so colorful and appealing. How can anyone not want to eat their veggies when presented with such beauties?!

    I too adore your garden harvest hod basket. I have a wire basket but find I most often just use my colanders for picking and just pull out buckets when something bigger is needed! But your basket is so beautiful that I would definitely want to use it daily.

  8. Looks so delicious! I'm still waiting for some red tomatoes... and waiting... and waiting... and waiting... *sigh*. -Jackie

  9. You are such a great photographer it's unreal! Everything you take looks like it's mouthwatering. Great looking harvest.

  10. Great photos as always...Dan.
    I am curious what you will make with the lemon... :)

  11. I agree, it'd be cool the see the inside. It looks more like a squash than a lemon.

    I'm hoping my tomatoes turn red this year...

  12. I read melon instead of lemon ! (at first glance it does look like a melon ! I was amazed you were harvesting so soon ! lol)

    Take a great big bite and show us your pucker !

    Beautiful harvest.
