Other Harvests From the Garden This Week
Even though we’re only recording the Family of 4 Garden harvests diligently, we are still getting a lot of produce from other areas as well.
We did harvest one of the ‘Lambkin’ melons this week. It was the smaller one that was looking more yellow. If you can’t guess from looking at this cross-section, we probably should have left it on the vine for another week or so. Oh well! These non-cantaloupe melons are tricky! It was still pretty crunchy and was more bland than sweet.
We also harvested 5 of the Tasty Bites cantaloupe. These were very tasty! They also have strong enough vines that they aren’t falling off the trellis…at least not yet.
We had some gorgeous purple tomatillos last week, and this week the green ones are starting to ripen. They aren’t as large as I think they should be, but we’re not going to complain. We were also surprised to see a few red jalapenos and serranos on the peppers plants that have been struggling in the Mexican Garden.
I’ve got a few more things to show off, but I think I’ll save those for the PhotoEssay tomorrow!
