Harvest Monday - July 30, 2012

I am slowly getting ready for my Fall garden, but in the meantime, the tomatoes plants are still producing. I'm getting a little bit of tomatoes from each plant. They don't all look great, but I find that the uglier ones taste better?!

The curly kale continues to produce, but I am thinking of pulling them out to put in some sugar snap peas. The kale has done really well for me, I really enjoy having fresh greens available at all times. The only problem is that they are being infested by white flies so I have to make sure I wash them really really well. 
I'm excited to get ready for my fall garden. I already started beets, and I'm thinking of started some bak choy and chinese broccoli. I also got some Italian Kale (or dino kale). 

I will again be joining gardeners around the world at Daphne's Harvest Monday. Happy gardening!

  2. Kale is such a great garden workhorse (along with swiss chard). That bunch looks really healthy.

    1. They are incredibly healthy. I just saw a bunch at whole foods and my fresh ones looked much better!

    1. I made some kale chips. They were delicious so I might try to have some at hand at all times.

  4. I think the uglier ones taste better because they're the ones that have been stressed...

    1. True. Maybe it makes it produce more glucose or something.

  6. Great looking harvest. This time of year our kale gets over run too, but it is with aphids. We just replant and by October we have another good healthy crop!!

  8. Lovely harvest!

    I wonder if a less curly kale would hold fewer bugs?

    1. This was my thinking too! I am starting the dino kale. I think they are less crinkly.
