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.
