Harvest Monday 8-22

Hop on over to Daphne's Dandelions for some harvest fun!

I could always use a little more Time...uh, Thyme! ;)  Rosemary sprigs, basil sprig, MWC tomatoes, Black Cherry Tomatoes, Royal Burgundy Beans, Dragon Tongue Beans (young), Yellow Wax, and Providor Bush Green Beans.

Cabernet Onions, MWC tomatoes, Royal Burgundy Beans, Yellow wax, and who knows which tomato this is...

More beans, a few more dried Taylor Dwarf Horticultural (AKA 'Cranberry'), more tomatoes, and two orange sweet peppers. One of them has sun scald because I removed a plant that was keeping it shaded! It happened fast! It was still eaten after I cut the spot off. The kids love these little sweet peppers!

Arkansas Traveler tomatoes, cherry, MWC, Black Cherry, and more beans. I'll be sending some of these purple beans to school with my girl for a snack! She could teach a few kids a thing or two about healthy eating! I'm proud of her!

My one and only tiny zucchini that I got after the SVBS completely severed the plant after eating their way through it! Good grief they are devastating this year along with the squash bugs. I have pulled so many plants without getting a thing out of them! I am gonna do a trap crop this year and burn those squash buggers!  My daughter thought the zucchini was cute so she wanted it. I sauteed it up for her and my son and they gobbled it down. This is the 3rd sweet orange pepper with many more to come! I was slow getting them going this year.
Tomatoes, and beans. The next round of beans is starting to come in good. Hope they don't get destroyed by bean beetles like the first crop did. I didn't get nearly as many as I did last year out of the same amount of plants.

  2. Nice bundle of thyme, are you going to dry it? I've never dried thyme but I think I will this year as I've been eating a lot of Zaatar recently and should really make my own. I also love your variety of beans.

  3. Lots of cherry tomatoes mixed in with your harvests! Sorry you are battling the SVBs this year but your harvests are still plentiful despite that annoyance.

  5. Beautiful harvest! Those onions are gorgeous! I am completely jealous of your thyme! Ours failed miserably! Can't seem to figure out the whole herb growing thing...oh well...there's always next year!

  9. It's crazy how the bugs do that each year, isn't it? I hope you get loads of beans now!

  11. Thank you all for looking at my harvest! I love to share!
    Liz, I am drying this round of thyme in paper bags.
    There is still plenty more that will be cut before first frost. This is from 3 plants planted in a very large pot! They are going nuts and trying to smother the basil and rosemary!
    Robin I hope you are right!

  12. That sure is a lot of thyme. Right now I just need more time, but more thyme might be nice too. Great harvest.

  13. Looks like you've had plenty of 'thyme' to grow a variety of tomatoes, this time around. Looks great. What are you going to do with it all?
