Harvest Monday - July 19, 2010

This post is part of Daphne's Harvest Monday. Click here to join in on the fun!

What a weird week we had here in Georgia.. It RAINED! ..and rained, and rained, and rained some more. Of course, the rain started about 20 minutes after I gave the garden a good soaking with the hose. Murphy's Law is always applicable to my life.

Because of all the rain, I didn't get out to harvest quite as much as I would have liked - and I didn't get pictures of everything I did harvest (surprise, surprise). The good news is that my peppers are growing and flowering like crazy. And hopefully next week will bring a few new items to my harvest tally.

Here is this week's only harvest picture:

And the weekly total:
- Patty Pan Squash: 10 oz
- Gold Zucchini: 2 oz (it was a teeny tiny thing that didn't seem to be growing, so I thought harvesting the zucchini might kick the plant in gear).
- Crookneck Squash: 10 oz
- Jade Zucchini: 1 lb
- Cherry Tomatoes - 8 oz
- Basil, Rosemary - not weighed

It always seems to rain in our area right after we water the garden, too! I hear your pain. Your harvest looks lovely, maybe the double water/rain thing is working for you! Do you cook patty pan squash the same way that you would any summer squash? I've never seen it in real life, and they look so cute.

I have never tasted the Patty Pan squash but it looks good. The pattern of excessive rain followed by excessive heat has been tough on the gardens.

Late in visiting the posts for Harvest Monday!

Five months. FIVE MONTHS! Where are you? Don't you know we miss you around here?

Hope you had a merry Christmas. Now get your butt back here, girl!

We have the same problem here in the UK with the rain, although it is every year with us.
