Harvest Monday 6.18.12

Linking into Daphne's Dandelions for Harvest Monday. Make sure to join the fun over at her place. Stop by to see all the different things being harvested all over the world!
Harvests are much slower now.

This is the main harvest this week:

The onions I harvested? Just over ten pounds worth and when all was said and done I was only able to save my sanity and 25 ounces. Talk about a let down.  19 ounces in garlic. 1 pound of leeks.

This weeks harvest totals - 1lb 2oz concord grapes, 8oz tomatoes, 2oz broccoli, 6oz okra and a few measly greenbeans I'm not counting because I fed them to the hens (next door) I also got 2oz basil and a large fistful of parsley that I started to dry until I realized there was something wrong with it. (looked like pin holes through the leaves...*sigh*) so I'm yanking out the old parsley and starting a new batch. This one was 3 years old so I had to expect it to have something wrong sooner or later.

The garden is (mostly) bare and awaiting turning under. I got all those spots yanked out that needed it and now summer planting can start as soon as I can get the turning, compost topping and sowing done.

'Till next time!



  1. Why did you lose so many onions? Those concord grapes look absolutely delicious!

  2. Ooh concord grapes. Wish I could grow those.

  3. Grapes! We have wanted to plant grapes for years and just haven't gotten around to it. Maybe next spring ;)

  4. Yes, what happened to your onions? Glad you had a good garlic and leeks harvest.

  5. your grapes and okra look great! What happened to the onions?

  6. Beautiful arrangement, the fruits look delicious, I don't think we could grow grapes here.

  7. I love the colour of the grapes. Shame about your onions. Hope it doesn't get too hot.
