Harvest Monday – August 10, 2015
Oops. It has been quite some time since I posted anything at all…
But I’ve had a busy couple of weekends, having friends over for one of them, travelling to the Netherlands for another, and the weeks before/between/afterwards were filled with preparations/cleaning up. And lots of swimming, since it’s been hot, hot, and hot again. Spending about 2.5 hours after work every day going to the lake, swimming and going back home (11 km cycling each way, and over 1 km swimming) doesn’t leave a lot of time for blogging.
Anyway. Time to play catch up – the harvests of the last three weeks:
Found some wild blackberries – they’re so good! I was planning to go to the forest to get more of them, but it’s just too hot.
The first big tomato harvest – it’s kind of a tradition for me to bring some on my trip to the Netherlands.
Still can’t bring myself to take off my Castlefest wristband… it reminds me of the good days I had there.
My last cucumber. The last plant died a few days ago. That really didn’t go well this year.
And I’m pretty sure there were more zucchini that were never photographed. Too many zucchinis…
The first fennel I’ve ever grown, the first beet of the year, some beans, and some savoy cabbage that really needed to be eaten as it was starting to rot.
It seems I didn’t take a picture of the chard, cauliflower and the last peas that I also harvested… that was during the weekend I had visitors, so talking and laughing and cooking together was more important than taking pictures (though at least I remembered to weigh everything so I could put it on my list.)
