Wednesday Weigh-In

Hey Kids!

Sorry for the radio silence... much to do around the house, with work, with the kids... you know.  The usual stuff.  So let's cut right to the chase, ok?  Over the past two weeks it's actually been slow growing.  For some reason, I've found myself in the middle of a little garden funk.  We're still harvesting the same old veggies, but none of the other stuff is ready for harvest yet and it's KILLING ME!!!  But the good news is that we have lots of little babies... baby veggies, that is. :)  So without further ado... my little babies:

A sweet little Tendergreen bush bean blossom.

Wish I had a better picture, but I did NOT expect this gorgeous purple spotting!  What an awesome surprise!

Who's excited for bell peppers?!?  This girl!!!  The one in the middle measures 2.5"x3"... and it's getting harder and harder to resist temptation to eat it up!

We have had some seriously cool weather around here, but my Stupice tomatoes are covered in blossoms and fruit!  Let's hope they are as tasty as they are productive!  (BTW, did I mention this variety hails from Czechoslovakia?  I'm a plant nerd.)

I had to lay on my back to get this shot... a tomatillo blossom.  The blooms are so beautiful and the plant is just covered with them!  This is actually one plant I wasn't going to start, but I decided to just throw in one seed at the last minute.

My Walla Walla sweet onion... the bulb just starting to swell above ground.  I'm so excited!!!

So there's the goods and now to the results:

Harvest over the past two weeks:  6 lbs .5 oz

Not too shabby for a "slow week"

Lettuce: 6lbs 7oz

Parsley/Basil/Herbs: 1lb 4oz (this is super hard... I pick so many little sprigs here and there.  I'll try to keep up as best I can.)

Sugar Snap Peas: 11lbs 1oz

Strawberries: 16 (These only ripen one or two at a time so they are gobbled up quicker than can be documented.  Oh those little fingers... Sigh.)

Collard Greens: 6lbs  

Scallions: 7oz

Broccoli: 7.5oz

Carrots: 1lb 11oz

Yearly Total:  27lbs 5.5oz

Oh... I almost forgot.  One more picture of my other babies:

The Handy Husband, Bubby and The Captain

Later kids!  I've got projects galore, but I'll be back with more inspiration tomorrow.  Promise!

xo, k
