Harvest Monday 6-20

Nothing as big as last week. But I had some firsts this week.
The first Thyme and garlic scapes from my garden. I used them in my Chicken Pot Pie along with half of my  peas. The other half went to the new freezer! It was a yummy pot pie. Delicious flavor. I had never had garlic scapes before and it was very good in my pot pie.
The very first raspberries! 1 1/2 actually! The birds got half of one. Then my daughter got them, of course! There will be a few more soon enough. Hope I get to taste some of them! There is a nice pile of chard and one tiny, tiny, smaller than the raspberries, strawberry! She ate that too.
Picked my first Big Boy yesterday morning, although, he wasn't very big. But he was good on a BLT!
My first little garlic. Another first ever for my garden! I needed some for a meal and didn't have any in the fridge so I decided to go ahead and pull one.
It had 9 little cloves and it was cute worked great in my cabbages soup! I am really happy to see that it is doing so well!
 We had a pretty windy rain storm on Sunday. Some things in the garden had to be straitened back up and tied up. Most of the corn held up though. Some of the tomatoes got pretty laid out. But most held up pretty well, amazingly. And the garden could use the rain we have been getting the past few days. Hopefully the plants will have a nice growth spurt from the rain water. Stuff grows so much better from rain water than the hose!
I have also been doing some more seed planting of beans and squash and a few transplants. I have definitely put every inch of space to use in the garden, and have taken over some other parts of the yard! If we are lucky we will have produce growing out our ears! I plan on putting that freezer to use!
Happy Harvesting and don't forget to visit Daphne's Dandelions, there is such a nice variety of harvests to be seen!


  1. I am so Jonesing for the first ripe tomato of the season - but I will have to just keep waiting and enjoy looking at your red treasure this week instead! That garlic clove looks just about perfect. I love using fresh garlic straight from the garden.

  2. Yum, BLT's and Chicken pot pies. I am ready for lunch already!!! Nice harvest!

  3. Congrats on the BLT, and the raspberries, too. I hope you get some berries next time!

  4. Oh your harvest looks good. I am new to your blog. Glad I found it!1

  7. Yum~~pot pie, that's a nice head of garlic you have there. I'm still waiting for my tomatoes, congrats on your first mato and BLT.

  8. I can't wait for my thyme to get big enough to harvest. It seems like this year it wants to be so slow.
