Harvest Monday – Week 6

Welcome to another Harvest Monday (Tuesday here in Aus). This week the weather has begun to heat up again, unfortunately too late for most of the tomatoes. Their time is almost at an end. We are still getting a lot of produce from the Patch. This is just one day’s harvest from early this week.

The pumpkins are looking really promising. The seed packet said Kent but they look more like Queensland Blue to us.

And while we don’t have as many watermelons growing this year, the ones we do have are getting very large.

We even have a little one growing at home.

    Your harvests look like a wonderful taste of summer. And it reminds me I have to start eating my frozen corn.

    The first thing that caught my eye was that corn too…I’ll be growing some this year and can hardly wait!
