2013 Harvest

Here are just a few shots of the veggies I harvested this year:

I cut up the turnips, and baked them with olive oil, salt, and pepper. They were gross. I think the turnips matured in hot weather, and were bitter.


This was a typical early-summer harvest. Tons of parsley, kale, and green beans. This is the last of the broccoli, and the first of the peppers.


My family loved the red potatoes! I think the variety I grew was less abundant than last year.

Let’s hear it for the most delicious, sweetest, loveliest sweet corn ever!


I had plenty of peppers (bell and spicy) for my salsa. And then I had tons of leftover jalapenos.  I don’t trust planting just one (what if it dies?) but two always give me more than I need. This year the bell peppers barely produced enough.


Look at these lovely pumpkins, and a bowl full of freshly picked produce! One of my readers sent me heirloom seeds for purple and pink tomatoes. They were so fun! I wasn’t smart enough to figure out keeping my own seeds from the harvest, but the good news is, I have plenty of seeds from the first batch she sent me.


Happy Gardening!

    5b–I believe you can have a successful garden in many zones, but you may have to adjust what you grow.

    Hey Emily, I love your SFG website. I was just wondering what zone you live in? I am in zone 5 and bracing myself for some tough gardening situations. Thanks!

    They tasted the same to me!

    I’ve always wondered about the yellow “green” beans. Is there a noticeable difference in taste? Love the pumpkins, by the way! Hadn’t thought of growing them!
