Early August Garden Harvest

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 13, 2011

Cucumbers and tomatoes (5 different varieties pictured here…Golden Girl, Big Boy, Tigerella, and I forget the other 2! Plus the mini-mini tomatoes that I snack on while watering the garden!)…that’s what’s mainly coming out of my garden right now. I’m also picking herb leaves, just about everyday for whatever concoction I have happening in the kitchen that day. And I’ve also picked a few peppers and used in the Cucumber-Pineapple salsa, and have put some not-so-hot peppers on my lunch salads.

Still Growing Strong

  • Brussels sprouts
  • Swiss chard
  • Acorn squash
  • Peppers – several different varities
  • Tomatoes – several different varieties

That’s my quick update for this week…we’d love to see/hear what you’re picking too!!!

I’ve been picking Mission figs every day for about 10 days. I’m also picking grapes. We’re harvesting swiss chard, tomatoes, basil, and several other herbs. The pears are almost ready.

Are you planting a fall garden this year? I am looking forward to it being cool enough here to plant lettuce again!
