Starting with the underground dwellers, we harvested all the garlic, 30 heads. Once they have cured and been cleaned I will show them and describe the varieties. Now they just look like dirt.
We dug the whole crop of Red Norland potatoes; three 4-foot rows yielded about nine pounds of these attractive spuds.
Above ground, my wish last week for ripe tomatoes was granted, albeit in a limited way.
|Taxi and Oregon Spring tomatoes|
|Ping Tung eggplant|
Also the first yellow wax beans, "Carson." Only three seeds germinated successfully this year.
For ongoing harvests, we got more artichokes.
A trifecta of berries: blueberry, jostaberry, and raspberry. There were many similar pickings this week.
Kohlrabi, broccoli, and filet beans.
And we're still picking salad greens and snap peas.
TKG and her mom are again sharing a plot at the community garden. Mom went home with a nice harvest of leeks, cucumbers, ground-cherries, kohlrabi, peas, beets, carrots, celery, tomatoes, beans, and new potatoes.
Finally, here's something interesting from Notes From the Field. I went metal-detecting in our woods and unearthed this cool axe-head up against a stone wall. I don't know what vintage it is, but I think it's pretty old (still sharp though!). The bigger question is, how did it get there? I can imagine an old-timer giving a mighty whack, and the head flying off never to be seen again (by him).
