Here goes my second monday's harvest post for things that have been harvested over the previous seven days. If you would like to join in the harvest celebration why not do a post and post your link into Daphne's Mister Linky for all to see!
Here is eight Big Chili II peppers that all went into green chili sauce for last weeks enchiladas. These are not a hot pepper and have basically zero heat. Minus the heat they are a very nice tasty pepper. These chili's weighted about 2lbs.
Here is a harvest that occurred last weekend. It should be four cucumbers, one seemed to went missing... and an ancho pepper that I accidentally knocked off the plant. I have been surprised that the cucumbers are producing so well. I have harvested about 8 cucumbers so far and there are about 6 that will be ready for harvest very soon.
This is today's harvest. For tomatoes I have one black zebra and one off the variegated tomato plant. I also harvested about a 1lb of dragon tongue beans and one jimmy nardello pepper that has turned.
A few people asked about how the variegated pink lemon looked on the inside on last Mondays Harvest Post so here is a shot of it. As for what I did with the lemon, I took the couple suggestions to booze up the lemon which you will see below and the zest went into a porketta roast rub. I have a couple tiny lemons on my tree again this year, maybe next season I will get more then one lemon.
Here is the end result of the lemon, it went into Caipirinha's. Does this make for a good first non caffeinated beverage of the day?
Recipe: Per glass add a half lemon(limes are traditional) that has been chopped up and top with 2-3 spoons of sugar. Mush this up with a spoon or pestle until the juice is released. Then add lots of ice and two shots of Cachaca. Mix and drink.
