Monday July 6

Not a bad week.   The last of the cole crops have been picked but snap beans have started up, just in time.  The summer crop of raspberries is finished, by my own doing, while the Tribute strawberries are starting to produce more berries after a short hiatus.  So without further ado, here's the week's pickings.

 Early last week, Provider bush beans, the first Marengo Romano pole beans and the last head of broccoli.

More beans, some Red Tropea onions, okra and the last head of cauliflower.

The last early summer harvest of raspberries.

A harvest of Calypso cucumbers.  This photo was on the last post, but why not show it again. 

Yesterday, more snap beans, onions, and okra.  The last head of cabbage was picked.  That finishes the cole crops for the year.  I don't plant fall cole crops because the beds get too much shade then.  Lettuce from the SWC's was starting to bolt so I picked much of it. 

About nine and a half pounds total.  To see what other people are growing, go to http://daphnesdandelions.blogspot.com/http://

Lovely harvests. I still have most of my cabbages to pick. I think I'll have to do that this week or they will bolt. And the last of the kohlrabi. I came back from camping and found the aphids had taken over the kohlrabi. At least the bulbs are fine.

Nice transition harvest. The cauliflower is beautiful. I've never had luck with them so I gave up.

Those are some beautiful harvests - the cauliflower & broccoli are perfect & the beans are so pretty. I'm growing a new yellow Romano this year (Gold Marie) & am really looking forward to trying it. The vines are only half way up the trellis right now, so I still have a ways to go.

Nice harvest. Good to have beans and cucumbers coming in. I'm still waiting for mine.

A great mix of spring and summer vegetables. It's amazing you're getting lettuce and okra at the same time. What do you think of the Morengo Romano beans? I'm growing them this year for the first time.
