This week’s harvest looks a lot like last week’s. I promise this isn’t the same picture. Look a little closer, this picture has a few green beans and a couple of jalapeno peppers; so that is my proof.
The peppers are putting out their post-summer flush. The jalapenos and green beans were fall planted but have already began to produce.
Why not give you a preview of harvests to come (hopefully).
I have never grown nor eaten kohlrabi. I don’t think it is sold here; so the only way I can try it is to grow it myself. Looks like I better find me a recipe.
The basil is definitely ready to harvest. I have been pinching back blooms. There has been very little return of the black spots since I pinched all the effected leaves off. I’m just not ready to harvest these yet; but I will before the first frost which should be a month away.
Of course there will be more beans and peppers; but I just wanted to show you that I have a couple more things that are fairly close to harvest time. I’ve got more stuff planted but nothing else within a week or two of harvest.
I’m sure somebody has more to show you than I, so visit Daphne’s Dandelions Harvest Monday to see what other gardeners are harvesting.
