I've still got plenty of veggies coming out of the garden to share for Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday. Once again, though, I was playing hooky for a long weekend so I didn't harvest as much as I could have.
First up is a bunch of Vida Verde leaf amaranth. The stalks are reaching for the sky now and forming flowers but some of the side shoots are still easy to harvest. This mix also produces lots of edible white seeds although I've never grown enough plants to harvest enough seeds to eat.
Next is a box with Todd County Amish and Hillbilly tomatoes.
And here are mostly Blue Beech paste tomatoes, one Chocolate Stripe and a few Paul Robeson tomatoes.
And the Pimento de Padrons are still producing like crazy, although they are growing more slowly now.
And lots of cherry tomatoes still.
The cucumbers are plentiful as well. The Palace King cucumber plants are growing next to the patch of Magadalena Big cheese squash which are becoming covered with powdery mildew but the cucumber vines seem to be unaffected.
Diamond eggplant which were made into my version of Eggplant Parmigiana. Delicious!
Thursday was a day of rushing around trying to get out of the house for the long weekend so I didn't take the time to photograph the boxful of Caspian Pink, Giantesque, and Aunt Ruby's German Green tomatoes that I harvested that day. The second picking of Pimento de Padrons didn't get photographed as well. And you don't get to see the second harvest of cucumbers either.
My pet sitter got a bonus of a bunch of tomatoes and basil. And my shift mates at the Aquarium got to enjoy some cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.
If you've got some harvests to share or just want to see what some other garden bloggers have got coming out of their gardens, head on over to Daphne's Dandelions.
