Harvest Monday Week 3

The temperature has continued to be lower than normal this week so things have been a little slower in the garden, but we have still picked some fabulous vegetables. 001

We got a number of mini orange capsicums (they are supposed to be yellow!).


Continued to harvest zucchini.


And Amish tomatoes, a few have had blossom end rot due to last week’s excessive rains but most are okay.


We finally picked our first corn and our first lot of squash from the succession planting.


Altogether we harvested orange capsicum 58 g, leeks 511 g, Amish tomatoes 385 g, zucchini 779 g, spinach 93 g, cherry tomatoes 329 g, corn 282 g, squash 108 g.

Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne on her blog Daphne’s Dandelions, have a look and see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting this past week.

    Those zucchini look beautiful. I miss the zucchini from summer. I’m hoping to get enough this summer so I get sick of them. It hasn’t happened yet.

    I’m with Daphne – I have never had as many zucchini as in your photo all at once. Amish tomatoes are on my seed list for this year. You’ll have to let us know how they perform for you & how they taste.

    Nice harvest. I have no luck in growing zucchinis. Every time I grow them it only flowers but never produce a fruit.

    I wonder what makes Capsicums that should be yellow come out orange? Those Patty Pan squashes are really attractive (certainly yellow enough!) – much nicer to look at than any courgettes / zucchini.
