Harvest Monday - July 26, 2010
So this perhaps isn't the photo you were expecting for Harvest Monday at the end of July, but I finally got around to weighing my garlic bundles this week. From left to right there are Thermadrone and then Madrid, both artichoke softneck types. Then there's Purple Glazer, a Glazed Purple Stripe type of hardneck. Next are Red Janice, China Stripe, and early Portuguese, all Turban type hardnecks. I also grew two silverskin softneck types but I've not trimmed and weighed them yet.
I didn't get around to photographing any of the other harvests this week and there isn't anything new in the harvest basket. The rats gave me a bit of a break this week and I got a few strawberries (I've lot count of the number of rats that I've trapped in the last few weeks, but they keep on coming so the rat patrol continues each night and morning).
