Harvest Monday 06/17/13

This weekend I harvested a lot more Snow Peas and Snap Peas.  Yummy!  
I let a few smaller broccoli heads get away from me and they bolted.  Must be the warm weather we've been having.  Not that I'm complaining.  I did manage to get a few more side shoots from the plants.  Cute eh?  LOL
Berries, berries, gorgeous berries!!  My raspberries were ready for picking.  They're on the small side this year but still very sweet.  I also had a few more Hood Strawberries and my first Marionberry of the year!

Harvest Totals:
- Peas = 0.36 lb
- Broccoli = 0.05 lb
- Mixed Berries = 0.33 lb

**Linking up to Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday.  Be sure to stop by to see what others' have been busy harvesting!!**

Happy Father's Day 2013

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!!  

This little guy parked himself in my neighbor's tree (which is conveniently located above one of my hummingbird feeders) this weekend.  He sang all day long.  He spared with the other hummers as they tried to get a sip from "his feeder".  He chirped at the dragon flies that got too close for his liking.  He even did a fly by on me to see what I was doing on the deck.  I enjoyed his company.  

He even let me snap a few photos with my zoom lens.  When he turned his head just right, you could see the fiery magenta/red color of his head.

Happy Father's Day!!

Harvest Monday 06/03/13

I've been MIA for a while and just starting to catch up.  I've been harvesting some nom noms from the garden but failed to post them.  I went to Las Vegas at the end of May for one of my niece's birthdays.  When I got home, my broccoli had tripled in size and was ready for harvesting.  Nothing beats home grown broccoli!!      

I also had a sweet surprise waiting for me...some Hood Strawberries.  They're my favorite just cause they're so sweet!  
I also picked some lettuce and a few peas that I thought I had photographed but likely not.  

Weekly Harvest Totals:
- Broccoli = 1.5 lb
- Strawberries = 0.09 lb
- Lettuce = 0.84 lb
- Peas = 0.13 lb
