Oh My Goodness. This year is not just flying by it's like - supersonic! We took a look at the family calendar yesterday and can I tell you that there is not one week wtihout some type of appointment for one of us, and not one single weekend when there isn't SOMETHING planned. Most weekends both days are planned. It means I'm out in the garden less right now. THat is good and bad in it's own ways. Less obsessing over the spots that need filled, the work that can't be done until the first frost and More enjoying of the harvest and harder work when I do get out there.
Here's my harvest for the week! THanks to Daphne for hosting Harvest Mondays - get over there and check out all the harvest from all over!
A couple people have asked what type of pumpkin it is and I'm going to tell you! Yes I am! Its....Iduuno. THAT's RIGHT! Iduuno! This pumpkin either hitched a ride in with my Jarrahdales. pie pumpkins or wtih my Jack O lanterns! It has characteristics of none of them. Definately without a doubt not even related to a Jarrahdale, possibly a crossed Jack O Lantern or Pie but certainly not what I thought I'd planted. Oddly enough I don't even care. Much like the 'determinate' tomato that is towering well over 6' and still growing as long as it gives me something - it's all good!
So adding to the harvest this week- Lemon hot peppers, Jalepenos, a sickly tiny butternut squash(the only one!) some black beans and not pictured yet again the lemons and limes used right off the tree.
I'm more than thrilled with this weeks harvest. The beans are delectable and the family is requesting more and more. The garden I am happy to report is glad to oblige. ;-)
'Till next time
