Harvest Monday Oct 18, 2010

Ahh, a little fall harvest... "Peanut buttercrunch" Lettuce, as my daughter calls it! Ha, we grow "Peanut Butternut" Squash too! And a few more nice tomatoes. There is no sign of a frost coming in the 7 day forecast, so that gives them more time! **Happy Face** There are a few peas in there too. Peas are not being very productive....blah! They did better in the spring. I haven't even collected enough for a baby food portion yet. Not that he would eat them...he has all the sudden got super picky! Stinker!
 Oh, and the Chard! These came off of a plant that is lucky to have survived all the animal damage. First it had a nibbler, then the critter digger! But, it looks well doesn't it? Despite it's obstacles! This looks to be about enough for a pizza! I think I see chard pizza in the future!
Well, it's small, but I am still harvesting and that feels good!

This weeks Harvest included 
4 Chard Leaves
13 Juliet Tomatoes
4 Tomatoes
10 Serrano Peppers
1 Habanero Pepper
5 Peas
1 pint Beans
1 bunch Cilantro
Spicy Bush Basil
See the link above for a complete harvest for the season.

Don't forget to visit Daphne's Dandelions to see what other gardeners are harvesting this fall!

I look forward to sharing a post about Fall Colors in the next day or two.

  2. yay for your peanut butter-everything harvest!

  3. "peanut buttercrunch"...hehe, that's funny...

  4. The red and other colored chards are such a festive fall crop in the garden - a splash of color when the garden is getting dark and somewhat bare of harvestable items. The plant looks like it bounced back well from it's early trials.

  5. Peanut butternut - sounds like a good recipe. Chard seems to be the plant of the hour on this Harvest Monday. Glad you had a plant that made it through the trials of planthood.

  6. I've had problems getting good harvests from fall peas too. They produce, but not up to their spring standards. Pretty harvest.
