We are thankful for our harvests that are increasing each week. This week was particularly good and we are quite happy with it.
Here is our first Roma tomato for this year. It weighed in at 3 1/2 ounces. We have 27 Roma plants so hopefully I will be busy canning various sauces.
This was our first picking of snap beans for this week. They weighed in at 2 3/4 pounds.
This was our second picking this week, just five days later. These weighed 3 1/4 pounds, for a total weight of 6 pounds of snap beans this week alone!
Our raspberries are coming in great! I picked these on Thursday and they weighed 6 ounces.
I picked these on Saturday and they weighed 2 1/2 ounces.
I picked these on Sunday and they weighed 1 3/4 ounces.
So the total harvest of raspberries for this week is 10 1/4 ounces. Fortunately, one time when I went out I caught two robins making off with raspberries from the canes. Now I'll have to cover them with netting somehow.
We got two sweet banana peppers that weighed 2 1/4 ounces.
Here is the prize for the week... one 9 ounce Park's Whopper tomato!
I canned 8 pints of Dilly Beans using the recipe from the Ball Blue Book. I like the zip that the Cayenne pepper puts in them!
And last but not least...
These aren't veggies, but I wanted to share how many blooms that are on our Chuck Hayes Gardenia bush out front. The scent is heavenly when you're downwind from it.
Be sure to visit DaphnesDandelions for more wonderful garden information and pictures of delicious meals.
Thanks to everyone for visiting, and I hope you all are having great luck with your gardens! If you don't have one, why not start one today? You can even do it in containers if you don't have the yard space!
Have a great vegetable gardening day!
