Harvest Monday 7/25/11

This week was a colorful week. I had a few more small berry harvests. I was lucky to harvest this tri-fecta of berries early in the week.

I can't believe I'm still harvesting more raspberries from my container plant. Early in the week I harvested close to another pint.

There were a few ripe and delicious strawberries that were picked.

I also found a small amount of blueberries that were ripe and ready.

I picked more green beans this week.
I also pulled some carrots to check on size. Unfortunately, there were some mis-shapened carrots. They're still a little small so they'll sit for a little bit more.

I pulled more radishes as they were over crowding the tomatoes.

I also picked this Konasu eggplant. Cute eh?
Later in the week there were more green beans. My second sowing of snow peas are producing pods now. There are only a few plants but they keep producing pods so I have more peas!
There was also another small harvest of mixed berries this weekend.

This week's harvest totals:
- Strawberries = 0.09 lb
- Raspberries = 1 lb
- Blueberries = 0.15 lb
- Eggplant = 0.04 lb
- Radishes = 0.25 lb
- Carrots = 0.1 lb
- Peas = 0.14 lb
- Beans = 0.28 lb
- Herbs (basil) = 0.01 lb

You sure have a good berry harvest run going on with those container grown raspberries. We have a big raspberrie patch and I am getting about the same amount from it currently. Ours is ramping up so that will change - but it really points out how impressive your container plantings are doing.

Looks delicious! I think we are definitely going to have to plant raspberries next year. Yours look fabuolous!

Berries look NICE. Glad to see eggplant coming along. We NWers are stuck with berries and more berries. Hope sun shines some more and summer veggies start rolling.

Sherry said...

Your berry harvests look really yummy. Those raspberries look like they are sparkling. Raspberries are on my "to plant" list this fall. I hope my harvest will look as good as yours.

Mac said...

Berry envious as usual, you inspire me to try container raspberry next year.
Those carrots are cute.

What beautiful photos of all those great fruits and veggies!

Daphne said...

That has to be the smallest eggplant I've ever seen. lol Love all the berry harvesting.

My early planting of carrots all looked just like yours, and they never got any longer, just a bit fatter, then began splitting. I finally pulled them all this week. Later plantings look perfectly normal.

kelli: Thanks!! Oh yes, I have a sick satisfaction of pulling and cutting my own fruits and veggies. Ahhh!

allison: Thanks! They were quite yummy!

kitsapFG: I'm surprised by how well the container has worked! My plant is puttering out but still giving smaller harvests here and there. I wish I had more room for a patch of plants but I have such a small yard.

shawn ann: thanks!

zentmrs: Thanks! I hope you have luck with planting raspberries. They've been very rewarding to have!

sonali: I'm hoping with the consistent 80 degree weather this week, we'll be seeing more warm weather veggies!! Cross your fingers!!

sherry: Thanks! I hope you have luck with them next season! It's fun to search out the berries!

mac: haha! Thanks!

Wendy: Thank you!

Daphne: They're a small variety but I picked this one to give the plant more energy to put out others.

annie's granny: I finally pulled all my carrots and there are a few more alien looking ones but some are nice and perfect! I hope I have luck with a fall planting!
