Perhaps I should say Garden Status Monday instead of Harvest Monday since the only thing I harvested this week was four brown turkey figs! There isn't much gardening news here this week because my wife and I just returned from enjoying a wonderful visit with my mom and my sisters in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York.
These four fig beauties tipped the scales at two ounces.
The Park's Whopper tomatoes are still trying to ripen on the vines. Since the next three days will be in the mid-seventies, maybe they will make it!
In the next few days I will be picking the last of the heritage red raspberries. Since they are right next to the house, that mini-frost we had on October 31st didn't bother them.
The buttercrunch lettuce is doing nicely. I'm actually thinking about harvesting some of it next week.
The broccoli and collards in my east plot are doing well. I thoroughly watered the entire garden today since it hasn't rained in a while.
There are also two rows of broccoli and two rows of collards on the other side of the giant marconi pepper plants. All are doing well and showing good signs of growth.
On the main side of the pepper plants in the west plot are four additional rows of collards. I guess it's pretty obvious that collards are one of our cool weather favorites.
That's all the news this week from my back yard organic vegetable garden.
