Garden Harvest

11-July2014_DSCF7064The garden is starting to come along, with us being able to harvest some of the vegetables. Vegetables such as tomatoes, corn, and others will be available for harvest soon.

Most of the plants are doing well, but there are issues with the watering system that may have contributed to the death of 3 or 4 tomato plants. 

Unfortunately, I had to use some pesticides today.  The aphids and other pests were just too populous to even think about controlling with organic means.  I used a spray that will not be absorbed by the roots, and while that will not control everything, it will be good enough to save the plants.

So far, the total harvest is:

  • Kale: 6.7 pounds  11-July2014_DSCF7061
  • Cucumber: 19.69 pounds
  • Green Onions: 5.375 pounds
  • Zucchini: 55.109 pounds
  • Tomato (Golden Nugget): 7.5 ounces (they are just starting)
  • Lettuce (leaf): 20.962 pounds
  • Lettuce (head): 1.6 pounds
  • Beets:  4 beets

Grand total:  ~110 pounds

This is what we did with some of the things we harvested:
