Harvest Report

Happy Harvesters

Today we did a little harvesting. Here's what we gleaned:

A platter full of vegetables

36 string beans, 4 zucchini (each 9-10 inches long), 2 beautiful bell peppers, 7 Anaheim peppers, two end-of-the crop radishes, and a beautiful bouquet of basil. We didn't pick any pole beans, so it's likely we'll have more beans when Enoch gets home from work. (Let the bean pole pick the pole beans!)

Here's a look at the front garden:

From l to r: basil, parsley, carrots, green onions, cucumbers, sunflowers.

There's a small basil plant near the steps, then some parsley, some very happy carrots, some green onions being overshadowed by the very bossy cucumber plant, which is also trying to attack our family of 5 sunflowers. We'll have to do some re-organizing for next year, for sure.

Late-in-the-day Update: Enoch returned home this afternoon, and although we didn't get any more beans, he did find 3 big (7-inch) cucumbers hiding out under the big leaves. Why didn't we see those earlier?
