tonight's harvest - pic

Post  landarch on 7/9/2015, 11:36 pm

Here in KC the heavy rains have continued into July...can't really remember even having to water my gardens this year.  Some veggies are thriving with the moisture, some are not happy.


Anyhow, here's a pic from tonight's harvest of the happy ones (onions, beets, carrots, green beans and my first tomatoes and pepper). tomato = Rebekah Allen, pepper - Fat 'N Sassy , beet = cylindra, carrots = kuroda and nantes, green beans = blue lake bush 274. Probably the best carrots and beets I've ever grown...planning a beet pickling session this Saturday...will probably have 2 or 3 five-gal buckets to process.

 


My cukes are way behind...too much rain rotted several seeding attempts.  Peppers are doing great.  Tomatoes are doing ok...it does not help that my home SFG's are adjacent to a recent street project with new sod...my raised beds get nailed three times a day from a giant water truck, even with all the rain.

Here in British Columbia and the Prairie Provinces that first line line would read:

"Here in Western Canada the baking sun  continues to shine into July. . ."

It's a pity the Weatherman cannot even things out for all of us.

Lovely picture, landarch.

Wow, those carrots look amazing. Yeah, these KS rains have been reeking havoc on our garden here too.  Looks like you've got a great haul so far.

Wonderful looking haul, landarch.

Two or three gallons of pickled beets to process? Holy cow, it would take me a very long time to eat all that. Will you just leave them in buckets, and will they go bad that way if you have to go in and out 200 times to eat from them? Or will you can them?

Very nice! I rarely have any luck with beets . All your rain makes me wonder if I'm not watering mine enough. Those Cylindra beets look interesting. I wonder if I'd have any better luck with those then I do with all the other varieties I've tried. Even if they didn't fatten up at least they'd be long and I'd get something from them. I'll keep an eye out for them.

Thanks all...I tried cylindra beets this year as they are supposed to be great for consistent slices and pickling.  I grew some beautiful Detroit Red beets last year so it was hard to make the switch. 

In total I have about 46 squares of beets...half have been harvested...the remaining half will hopefully be picked tomorrow and pickled/ canned with a pressure cooker...a winter salad essential.  There are many recipes on-line for quick-pickled beets but they only last a few weeks in the fridge.

Headed to the store (in the rain) to pick up a roast to use up some carrots and onions.
