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!


  1. nice looking stuff! Waiting to see if my first eggplant will size up any more or if I'm going to cut it small.

  2. Great harvest. Everything looks great. I had not seen that type of eggplant, interesting.

    So you were right about my garden- the dreaded squash vine borers were everywhere. :( Mostly everything died.
