This mornings harvest from my allotment. Those raspberries were delicious. I’ve grown so many broad beans this year, this is only the first pick of them.

Entry 55: First Day of Autumn

The day has come. It’s September 23, the first day of fall. That means summer is officially over. The garden has been winding down for a while now. We’ve been harvesting, and giving away, tomatoes. We’ve got way too many. 

Surprisingly enough there’s one plant that has been thriving the last few weeks. That would be the eggplants pictured in Pic 1. The whole season we’ve seen maybe 3-4 eggplants but they’ve really shown up the past week. There are 3 currently growing on the plants. This was really unexpected. My theory is that we had them too close to the cucumbers, they ended up taking over the place. But after we removed the dying cucumber plants they were allowed to shine.

The second picture shows the minestrone soup I made this week with some celery and tomatoes straight from the garden (Pic 2). I didn’t get the consistency quite right but the taste was still good. It had a ton of vegetables including, carrots, onions, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, zucchini and celery. Yum! I actually got the recipe from youtube. Let me know if you’d like to check it out!

If you ask me it’s definitely been another successful growing season. Happy havest!

Entry 54: Harvest Galore!

I know I haven’t posted in a while. There really hasn’t been anything worth posting. There’s a constant stream of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers (Pic1) being harvested in and I guess I felt that the same post over and over wasn’t really news worthy at all. 

But this week I did harvest in all my red onions. And believe me this is news! Onions are always a waiting game. You plant them in the beginning of the season and if you want some good sized onions, like you’d see in the stores, you got to wait until the end of the season to harvest. Normally I’m impatient and end up cutting off the tops for dishes before the season’s over or I’ll harvest tiny red onions to eat during the season. This year I’ve been good and waited until we got some respectable sized onions. Check them out in Pic 2. That’s good stuff! The red onions I get are always delicious. They have a really fresh and oniony taste. It never tastes like the ones I get from the store, they’re so much better. Seriously if you’re looking for something to plant next growing season, may I suggests red onions. They are worth the wait.

Entry 52: And The Hits Just Keep On Coming!

Today we brought in quite a haul (pic 1).The cucumber plants were a bit unruly. I know I should have built a taller lattice so that they would grow up, not out. But because of the unruliness a lot of the cucumbers were hidden and we missed them during our first harvest. But on the bright side a lot of them got to grow to an ample size. Also many of the tomatoes are ripening because of the hot weather. I’m really happy about this harvest but I’m not really sure what to do with ALL these cucumbers and tomatoes. 

Just as quickly as they were picked, the cucumbers and tomatoes were tossed into a delicious summer pasta salad (Pic 2). Yum! Got to love fresh raw veggies. Happy Gardening!
