What a harvest week. I have my biggest weekly harvest ever recorded (though this is only the second year I've been keeping track) and my garden this year is smaller than it has been in the past. The reason is of course the weather. It has been spectacular for warm weather crops. Usually in New England our warm weather crops struggle, but not this year. This year they are going crazy.
Shelled: Red Kidney, Ottawa Cranberry, Black Coco. So far the harvest hasn't been all that good for dried beans. And the Ottawa Cranberries are about half the size as the ones I grew last year. The beans are in the shadier part of the rock wall garden. There is a maple tree that hangs over some of them. Hopefully they will be more prolific in the future. So far all the Black Cocos have been picked, but not all of the Kidney or Cranberry beans.
On Friday I showed you that I cleared off my table after making salsa. Now it is worse than it was before. I'll have to can again sometime this week. Maybe it will just be tomato sauce as it is a lot less work than salsa. I do need more salsa though.
