Harvest Monday Oct 4, 2010

Fall is showing in the garden this week. We have had our first 60s since spring, brrrr, ha! With some lows in the low 50s. The beans are still producing a bit. Most everything has slowed quite significantly. I haven't brought in any of the tomatoes though. I don't like green tomatoes, so I am going to try to leave them as long as possible to see if I can get any ripe ones out of the bunch. There are so many nice size ones. This week I picked just two small slicers and several little juliets. 

The bell peppers are still going as well. I did pick several green ones though . My kids probably won't eat any of the green ones, but they will eat the orange ones! The sweeter they are, the better for them! There is also one more Jalapeño here, and one very lonesome Pea Pod! It was the only one ready. There are several pea plants out there, none are growing very high or vigorously. Maybe because of all the heat and drought we have had. I was hoping to have a better fall harvest than my 2 1/4 cups spring harvest! It isn't looking too promising! But the pepper harvest is colorful!
Well, we will see what the next week brings us. The first frost is getting closer and closer! We have had some lows around 50 and are suppose to get some upper 40's this week before it goes back up again for a bit. We will see how the tomatoes respond to it, but I am not pulling them till the first frost hits! 

Happy Harvesting and don't forget to visit Daphne's Dandelions for more featured Harvests!

ETA: I don't know if it is blogger messed up or my computer, but I cannot leave any comments on other blogs, so sorry gardening friends, your harvests are lovely!

  1. My peas aren't doing very well either. Hopefully all of the rain we have been having and the cool weather will do them some good!

    Blogger is acting up a bit today

  2. Let's see if this works...

    Robin-I wish we were getting some rain. We had one small teaser rain here this week but our area is in a real drought. It has cooled though. We just need the rain!

  3. Glad to see that your garden is still producing! I got impatient and picked three sugar snap peas that were still immature. Blech, should've left them on the vines another week or so.
