Harvest Monday - October 8, 2012

It's been a while I've joined Harvest Monday hosted by Daphne Dandelions. I've been harvesting lot of bok choy and some kale but I forget to take pictures of these. I did take a snapshot of the harvest from the community garden: Ichiban eggplant, Italian eggplant, chinese giant red peppers, longhorn peppers, one beet, and lemongrass.

Also, this is from 2 weeks ago, I pulled out the last of the tomatoes in my balcony garden.  These are pink champions. Next to the tomatoes are baby arugula and kale.

I'm also getting a good harvest of giant chinese red peppers. This year, the peppers are bigger than last year. I'm not sure why exactly, but I can't complain.

I also found a funky looking pepper in the community garden. This is also a chinese giant red pepper. See it has a skinny little tail!

I hope everyone's fall garden is doing well! Happy gardening!

  1. I get weird tails, noses, etc on both peppers and tomatoes periodically. Not sure what causes it but they taste good regardless!

    1. I like the ones with odds shape. They so unique and feels really home grown.

  2. Toshiko, This fall I'm growing elephant garlic and red shallots. Heading broccoli, celery that I am regrowing from the supermarket as well as sweet potatoes and purple potatoes. Chantenay Carrot ( very juicy ). Radish for the seed pots also known as rat's tail delicious tastes like peanut butter. I'm growing Edamame for when I make sushi. Jicama from store bought tubers are great lime juice and tajin seasoning also used in micheladas. Okra, Kabocha Squash, Big Rainbow, boxcar willie tomatoes, Spaghetti squash, and tomatillos.
