The fourth and last Marina di Chioggia squash came out of the garden last week. This specimen is the most true to type of all the Chioggia squash that I grew this year. It has the characteristic blue-gray color, the ridging and some knobbiness, although it could be more knobby.
And it has the turban on the bottom. It's also weighing in at a fairly typical weight of over 13 pounds.
Other than the squash the only other vegetable that I harvested was some kale. I've been working my way through previously harvested squash, celery root, peppers, tomatoes, and a few other items that I picked up at the farmer's market. There will be a trickle of a few more peppers and eggplants as they finish ripening, but other than that, the harvests in coming months will be mostly for immediate consumption. Thank goodness, the freezer is stuffed.
The harvest totals for the past week were:
Marina di Chioggia squash - 13lb., 3.25 oz.
Portuguese Dairyman's kale - 1 lb., 4 oz.
The total for the week was - 14 lb., 7.25 oz.
The total for the year is - 650 lb., 9.5 oz.
Hmm, I wonder it the harvests will pass the 700 pound mark? I think it's possible, the remaining celery roots should be harvested before they get too big, and there's one more cabbage, and an early head of romanesco...
