Harvest Monday - December 17, 2018

The harvest posts are quick and easy at this time of year when the harvests are less abundant and especially when I don't take very many photos. I often times find myself going out to garden at the end of the day to quickly harvest something for dinner and at this time of year it often means there isn't enough light left to take a decent photo. That's why today there's only one harvest photo to show for a week's worth of harvests.

And that's still not the final harvest of peppers. Sweet peppers are totally gone but the late baccatum peppers are still ripening along with some Jalapeños and I'm waiting for the Habanada peppers (C. chinense) to ripen up a bit more also. We had about 3/4-inch of rain yesterday but other than that the weather has been mild for this time of year with highs in the 60ºF's and lows in the 40ºF's and mostly sunny days so the peppers are still hanging in there.

The other harvests for the week were some Queen of Crunch lettuce, Rishad cress, a bit of Batavia broccoli, Pink Plume celery (of course!), a couple of Short Stuff carrots, and some Peppermint Stick and Italian Silver Rib chard. 

I'm dragging a bit this morning because I'm fighting some sort of bug so I'll keep this post short.

Harvest Monday is hosted by Dave on his blog Our Happy Acres, head on over there to see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting lately.


  1. It's amazing you still have peppers, though I know the baccatums are pretty hardy compared to most. I hope you are over your bug soon!

  2. And what do you do with all these peppers? Supply a restaurant! I've had that experience too. Remembering to take a photo of a harvest and daylight is waning. I don't like the appearance of my phone photos with flash so sometimes I skip reporting those harvests. You do grow some interesting varieties.

  3. Lovely basket of peppers! Hopefully your bug is fleeting :)

  4. The peppers are beautiful! Particularly like the look of the Giant Aji. Hope you are feeling a bit better now

  5. Your harvest posts may be quick but mine are non-existent as we haven't been to the allotment for over a fortnight.
