Harvest Monday - June 18, 2012
I've been gone for 2 weeks, visiting my family - a trip that was long overdue. I have lots to write about the trip, but for now I want to show what I harvested from the community garden today. There is so much more to be harvested, but I didn't have enough time so I have a small-ish harvest for now. The other community gardeners made sure my plot was well watered, and the plants exploded while I was gone. The plot looks like an absolute jungle. I still haven't been able to look closely at how each plant is doing, but all in all it looks like a lot is growing.
bunch of kale
The ichiban eggplant is doing really well, I got one huge eggplant and 2 little ones. Maybe I will make some curry and freeze it down.
The collard green was completely growing out of control, so I couldn't tell if the classic eggplant recovered from the flea damage or not. I'll have to go back out there tomorrow to check it out. I may update this post with whatever I harvest tomorrow.
I'm joining Daphne for harvest Monday. Please go check out what others are growing in their garden!
Update: I pulled out several collard and swiss chard from the community garden. The bed was getting too crowded!
