Harvest Monday – August 12, 2013
I am a little shocked at how fast the summer is flying by. So much to do this year that the weeks are just rushing past.
A couple of harvests have gone unphotographed, and a couple of Harvest Mondays been missed, because I was so rarely at home, but at least I have recorded them all. And now I’ll try to get back to showing them off.
Delicious strawberries welcoming me home.
Most perfect cucumber so far.
Zucchini fcrom the community garden. It got a bit bigger than I’d have liked, because apparently, while I was away, neither my mother nor my best friend harvested anything.
Lots of stuff for a huge bowl of pasta salad – tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, cucumber, arugula, basil and garlic chives.
I’m already at 105 € this year. I still haven’t quite sorted out my expenses, but I think this year the balcony garden will become a thing to save money with instead of to spend it on.
I haven’t tracked the harvests from the community garden, because there are three people harvesting from our shared plot, and three people buying stuff for it, but I have a good feeling about that as well.
