Harvest Monday

It has been a while since I have done a Harvest Monday post so today seemed like a good day to do one. The heat finally broke today so I was able to get some work done that I have been putting off. I am starting to get the feeling it is going to be one hot summer. This should be good for the garden but not so good for the gardener, one can only remove so much clothing. Here is a series of photos of what I picked today:


Today I harvested all the garlic. It seems kind of early to harvest garlic put it was definitely ready. It is a little small this year, likely due to my December planting.


Amongst the garlic I had a bunch of potatoes come up from last years garden. I swear I got them all last fall :) I'm not complaining though because these mini potatoes will be excellent for dinner tomorrow.

Odds and sods are the first tomatoes of the season, sungold cherries. Along with a few broccoli side shoots and a mini zucchini. These will be added to a salad tomorrow.


Lastly here is a couple heads of broccoli I harvested last week. The broccoli has been great this year. The only issue I have had is I lost a few heads last week to the heat.

  1. I'm so happy to see you back here blogging! Nice variety of veggies, too. I just know I'm missing a lot of potatoes as I dig them, so I'll probably have wee ones popping up everywhere next year.

  2. I had more "stray" potatoes this year than ever before. And even odder---since I rotate yearly, I have some coming up in spots from 2 years ago.

    My garlic was TINY this year compared to last years. I'm blaming lack of snow/rain.

  3. You never get all of the potatoes - it's the law of gardening

  4. Nice veggies! Especially nice to have surprise potatoes when you know you didn't plant and wasn't expecting them :)

  5. I've been getting little baby zukes too. And one monster one. I've got them all under a row cover so they don't pollinate unless I do it by hand. I did one before vacation, which was the huge one. Then the little ones were the females that didn't get pollinated in time. Now if another one would just open I could get a regular one.

  7. It's nice to see some of your harvests again. Small garlic is better than no garlic (like me this year), it will still taste grest.

  9. Will your potatoes have any garlic flavor at all? Because if they do? Yum!

    Nice harvest!

  11. Sorry just noticed that you wrote what the tomato was and it is the same as my first - Sungold. Good to know! Nice looking broccoli. Mine is lacy with earwig damage. First time ever, I've had a plague of them!

  14. You're way ahead of me Dan. It has just been rain, rain, rain here and everything is desperate for sunshine to ripen.

  15. Wow!! I'm so jealous of how your potatoes came out, they look so natural and wonderful. You're also quite a photographer! Got any more snapshots?

  16. No matter how hard I try, I never manage to harvest all the potatoes out of a bed and am assured I will be having volunteers growing in the bed in following years. The little "found" potatoes can be a real treasure though and often much appreciated.

  18. Our veggie's are a bit of a bust this year, but the raspberries are amazing. Must be all rain we had this spring which was very unusual . You should make a veggie stew.
