I left on vacation on Wednesday morning and am still there. I am probably internet disabled though there is a chance that we have access to a computer. I scheduled this post so you could all still have fun with Harvest Monday without me.
However I do have a small harvest from earlier in the week. The beans and cukes need picking about every two days. Luckily my townhouse mates seem happy to have the chore of harvesting the produce, but I didn't make them weigh it all this time. So no additional weights will be added in from them.
I had the last harvest from the old house. I harvested mostly dill to freeze. My new house has no dill growing right now so if I want more pickles this summer - and I do - then I needed to stock up. This does not even touch the dill that I had at the old house. This was just a little bit of it. It probably weighed over a pound as shown above, but I processed it before weighing. I wanted to have both dill heads and dill leaves for my future pickles so made two containers of each of those.
The old house and its garden is now just a memory. I signed the papers to sell it on Tuesday. I thought it would be hard leaving, but right now I don't think so. I know I'll have a wonderful and bigger garden here. So things will be fine. I'll miss having a place for all the fall crops but it isn't a real issue. I can have patience for another year.
The small bit of the new garden that is up is filled with summer veggies. And I picked some beans and cucumbers before leaving. I blanched the beans and froze them and put the cukes in the refrigerator pickle jar.
