Just more tomatoes and ground cherries :)
My derpy onion harvest. Going to make dehydrated minced onions for my seasonings I think! Time to look up onion growing videos 😂
Finally got some ripe (and some not so ripe) plum tomatoes and continue to pick up ground cherries
some of my garlic harvest - I LOVE garlic and its really easy to grow - plant in fall, harvest the following summer.
Dug up the rest of the potatoes (3.5 lb), clipped some florellenschluss lettuce (from Permaculture Gardens!) (1.2 oz) and grabbing ground cherries as they fall :)
@Sarah Kaufman @Vik Ressy and @Meara Alvarado ! You are all amazing!!
Finally harvested some blueberries and slowly digging up potatoes :)
My first jar of fermented dill pickles using my Chicago pickling cucumbers , garlic, dill and a two grape leaves all from the garden. I used the recipe by Diane from the master class on holistic homesteading (highly recommended!) . The photo is from day 1.
Love the first look at the green beans Allison, beautiful!
You can't read the #'s, but it was just shy of a pound of beans, peas and few strawberries still coming in. My favorite garden fresh veggie... beans!
WHAT!!!!??? Meara! I can't believe you did this because I live in your same climate and we have not gotten heads like these! So amazing girl!
First broccoli ever harvested! Thinking stir-fry tonight 😁
Beautiful @Vik Ressy !
First blackberries for us - from 6/15/2021
You rock @Meara Alvarado !
More peas and lettuce to much on! So thankful I'm getting at least something out of my garden my first year doing anything 🥰
If you click on the link above. You will see me making goumi berry jam.
The first cucumbers! chicago pickling, a few brocolli , a few strawberries that actually made it out of the garden (most get eaten before we make it to the house) and garlic scapes
This morning's harvest!
Too busy eating my fresh produce to photograph it all! But here are some photos I took because I was so pleased at the harvest that particular day.
May 12: Rhubarb
May 27: Greens
June 1: Radish
June 8: Strawberries
Yup! We "inherited" an extractor from a friend that didn't want to deal with it's issues. The biggest issue was the handle would fly to pieces if you didn't crank at the right speed, but hand cranking is exhausting anyways. I found a socket at ACE for about $6 and just connected the electric screwdriver to where the handle would be. Still a bit of a chore in a lot of ways, but it worked out and was worth it!
Wow! I can't believe it, @Sandy Steinfelt! This is so precious! You did it! With your broken extractor?
Sarah, those mulberries look yummy! I have two bushes, but they haven't produced yet. That picture makes me excited for when they do!
Here's something i harvested last week and a few weeks ago, and finished processing today. Honey! Over 7 lbs of it.
@Meara Alvarado and @Sarah Kaufman ! You guys rock!
We are still picking goumi berries, strawberries, lettuce and I've made some jam from the berries. I will post a pic soon!
first mulberry harvest, about 10 pounds of berries. I love this season :) I think partly because you can't buy them in stores which makes them special. and the pie. they make amazing pie.
Very excited to be munching on this all week! Will hopefully be seeing some peas and maybe even a couple of beans this week 😍
@Nicky Schauder they were delicious! it’s our Stella cherry tree. We just got it last year - I have no idea how old it is. It’s about 8-9’ tall but pretty small overall. We got a rainier at the same time, but it came with some sort of fungal disease, so it went back. Since Stellas are self pollinating we didn’t sweat getting another one (really regretting that now hah). We are still looking for a Rainier, so if someone in NOVA has seen any, please let me know :)
What??? @Vik Ressy this is ridiculous!!! This looks as large and ripe and juicy as the ones in Washington State! How did you do this? How old is your tree? It does this for you, every year?
I cannot believe it! Thanks so much for sharing. You have given me hope! A big cherry tree in my future please!
We just harvested our first cherries today - 18.77oz
