Harvest Monday 6/11

Harvest Monday is sponsored by Daphne's Dandelions, and the letter B.

This weekend was a big harvest, but I am an idiot and failed to take pictures, the only one I have for this week is below.

Part of a harvest of kale, Swiss chard, and green onion.

This morning however, I got sick of waiting on things so I pulled up a couple lettuces, some celery, and green onions to take over to my mom.  Total weight 22 oz. 

I filled in my empty squares this morning with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and eggplants.  Just waiting on the rest of the brassicas to finish up before all of my second planting goes into the ground.  The tomato starts have been besieged by some sort of fungus and I'm really hoping that moving them into the garden where it's less humid and they get better nutrition will improve things.  /fingers crossed


Harvest 6/11: lettuce, celery, green onion, one tiny strawberry for mom.
I will have to post an update later today, or possibly tomorrow since I took a bunch of pictures this morning.  But right now, me and my little man are going to Grandma's and then to the playground to play in the fountain.

Have a lovely day everyone!

  1. Looks good to me. A little harvest is better than no harvest. Have fun at the playground!

  2. Your chard is beautiful! Our spring in NC was far too short. Lettuce bolted for me in March after 3 days in the high 80's. Enjoy!

    1. I suppose the long cool Springs here do have their advantages. But you will likely enjoy much better Summer crops than me. :)

  3. Very yummy! I hope the tomatoes do better once planted up. Fighting fungus in the tomato patch is a bear. Constant battle for us given our cooler and damper growing conditions.

    1. Ain't that the truth! I'm coming to the realization though that no matter where you garden, the weather is always a problem. If it's not too cold and wet, it's too hot and dry. LOL

  4. Great looking harvests! I have heard of using garlic sprays to combat fungal infections, perhaps it will help get your tomatoes started better.

    1. Thanks for the tip, I will give it a shot if they don't improve. I was also thinking some compost tea foliar feed might help. I guess I'll just have to try both and see what works out.
