It’s Harvest Monday at Daphne’s Dandelions! Come join the fun!
It seems like the only thing producing well in the garden this week are the Habaneros and Juliet grape tomatoes. I think I may cut off the Juliet! It is just taking up way too much room and producing more than I want or can use! So, I might just trim it up real good to make room for the other tomatoes to try to do something cause they are having a real lull right now! Every day I go out hoping to bring in a bucket of slicers, and most days I am quite disappointed! Especially if the ONLY ripe one out there has a worm hole in it! I’m also not patient enough to wait for the tomatoes to fully ripen on the vine and so all my tomatoes have to be pictured upside down so that you will see that they have begun to turn pink! Ha!
Oh, I only have one cilantro plant out there. Don’t know why they haven’t germinated, but I have picked off a couple of sprigs this week out of need for it, but it has not been nearly enough. Grow Cilantro! Grow!
Picked another pumpkin. Made cookies the other day, which I posted the recipe for, and they were YUMMY! The kids ate the rest of it, pureed! What good eaters! Such a healthy treat! Also had a Serrano showing a bit of red here. It was fully red when I gave it to a friend.
Great Habanero harvest this week. After I moved the plant from the somewhat shady spot over to the sun, it had orange peppers on it practically the next day! They look quite different from the other Habaneros I have been picking. The ones shaped like saucers are from Seeds I planted. The smaller more orange ones are from a plant I bought at the garden center. Seems like the saucer shaped ones might be some kind of Scotch Bonnet Habanero maybe.
I was very tempted to pick these Butternut squash today, but I wasn’t sure if they were ready. I haven’t grown Butternut before. So If someone has some tips about when I should pick them, let me know! They have turned tanish, they might have a few greenish veins in them still. These are my only two so far. Still hoping for more!
