Harvest Monday, July 5

I am a little late on my harvest monday post! Almost 1.5 hours away from Tuesday ;) None the less, better late than never....and I hope I am remembering most of the weeks harvest! It was a busy past week over here.

My Cucs are coming along and I picked these beauties clocking in at 2.213 pounds. I made a new fridge pickel recipe with them and they were a hit on 4th of July! Now if only I can remember what all I put in the recipe ;)

Our broccoli has been producing like wildfire and I am just about broccoli'ed out ;) This week we harvested almost one pound, clocking in at .818 of a pound. I think maybe there was a little more picked one day that I forgot to weigh in.

Our carrots are not done yet, but I couldn't help picking some ;) I pick some and hand them over to the horses for a sweet treat from time to time and this past week, I picked these to roast with our broccoli. These beauties weighed in at 2.61 ounces.

And, the Mammoth Snow Peas that I recieved seed from Daphne on are finally coming in! I was worried I planted them too late and wouldn't have a harvest. We have been picking and eating off the vine all week while we were in the yard, but this batch I was able to weigh; they clocked in at 2.50 ounces and they are super delish!

To check out other harvest tallies for the week from all over the place, check out Daphne's Dandelions
Have a great week!

Although still small, those carrots look delicious!

Your Snow Peas make my mouth water. I unknowingly planted mine too late this year. Oh well, I'll try again in the Fall.

The cucumbers are so refreshing in the summer and I don't know anyone that doesn't like them. Between the carrots, broccoli and peas, you have a nice stir-fry.

I eat a lot of snowpeas off the vine too. They are just too tasty. I wish I had broccoli though. Mine just didn't do well this year. I have tons of snap peas right now, but no broccoli.

That broccoli looks awesome! And peas, you still have peas! So envious.

Hey, you still have peas! Right on. I ripped mine out about a month ago. They were producing like crazy, and I was picking every day just to keep up with them, so of course now I miss them. :( Nice job on the cukes and broccoli. Cute carrots!
