First Big Harvest 2010
|Although I have gotten a few things from my garden here and there this year (spinach, lettuce, peas, leeks); I am so excited about my first big harvest of 2010. The following are all things I pulled from my garden this last week.|
|I planted this garlic last fall. This is the biggest that my garlic has ever gotten! I have a ton of it too. This picture only shows a fraction of what I actually have harvested. I already gave some to my neighbor who forgot to plant some herself last fall. She will be planting some of what I gave her.|
|I finally grew turnips! I have tried 5 years to grow them, and I know that they are easy to grow. So what was my problem? Eh.|
And to those who are saying, "why the hell would you want to grow them anyway" -- try roasting them. Yum!
|Shallots were pretty easy to grow. I don't know why they charge so much for them in the store.|
I am going to keep the largest ones and replant all the smaller ones. Soon I should have a nice big patch of them. They are supposed to be very hardy, so I will plant them this fall.
|I have never had very much luck growing carrots... until this year!|
I finally got rid of my knotty carrot problem by using raised beds. The soil in the beds is perfect now. You may have noticed that some of the root tips are bent a little, that is the side effect of transplanting the seedling. Not a big deal at all, huh?
