October harvest

Post  Josh on 10/9/2011, 8:23 pm

Picked these things in the SFGs today, there will be a lot more if the weather holds out.

Tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, peppers, radishes, onions, Brussels sprouts, malabar spinach and lots of herbs. Oh.... and one of those world record size leeks... Laughing
They were suppose to get as big as a man's arm....

Gorgeous harvest, Josh! I hope my gardening skills eventually improve enough so that I can have harvests even close to that nice!

I didn't know you could be having tomatoes and peppers still in Illinois at the same time as you can harvest cabbage! Were the tomatoes and peppers grown outside or in a greenhouse? Shocked

The tomatoes and peppers are plants from early spring I planted that are still growing and producing, but the cabbage plants I ordered and they came late spring and they didn't grow at all until about a month ago and the temp started to cool off a bit and they started to grow.

I checked to see in my older post as when I got my plants, and it was back in the first part of May that I planted the leeks. I've never grown leeks before, I have more of them and one is a lot bigger, so is that a good size for them?

The tomatoes and peppers were just grown outside in the SFGs.

Yes, it looks good, the edible part is long as your arm, very good! This is a first year for growing leeks for me as well, mine are still 1/2 that diameter, but they went in later than yours. I still have a few more weeks to let them grow. Leeks are yummy and easier to grow than I thought! Very Happy
