Harvesting Like Crazy

Share on Google+

Last year I was much better about posting what I was harvesting as I harvested. This year, I’ve had so many other things I wanted to write about that I’ve neglected posting about my harvests.

Well, it’s getting to be the time of year where harvesting is at the top of my list of gardening tasks. In fact, I’ve been busy harvesting daily, which has been awesome!!

I have been keeping track of what I’ve been harvesting, I just haven’t been sharing it with all of you (which probably isn’t very interesting reading for you anyway). So I thought I would give a quick run down of what I’ve been harvesting.

Some first harvests – tomatoes, kohlrabi, cukes and okra

First peppers




Green beans (second large harvest)

I haven’t harvested many peppers yet because I want them to get nice and big for canning. I’m planning on canning peppers and cucumbers (pickles) this year as we have for the past two years.

This year, I also hope to can tomato sauce and salsa…and possibly green beans. We’ve already made two large batches of fresh salsa, so yummy!!

Hope all of your harvests are going well too, how will you be preserving your harvests?

    Thanks! I'm not sure about the Okra, this is by far the best it's ever done for us. It's right next to the tomatoes in the sunniest spot in the garden. I don't have eggplant yet and I see you've been harvesting a lot of that, so I guess it's a toss up! :-) The okra plants are about 4' tall and getting taller every day. I didn't realize they got that tall, I wonder
