The beginning of the week had some nice harvests. Monday was raining hard. We had three inches of rain over three days. This caused my melons to split. But just because they split doesn't mean they don't get eaten. Some of the melons were divine. Some just OK. And don't think these are big melons. They aren't. For me they ran about two pounds each which is a perfect size if you don't have a family eating them.
And weirdly of the carrots too. I had a line of carrots in the middle of the tomato plants. I had to pull them all as the spinach was getting planted there. They had good sun early in the spring but were still small when the tomatoes were planted. After that the tomatoes took over and they had no sun at all. But they still put on some roots. I was surprised they did as well as they did.
Thursday my asthma really kicked in. I quit gardening except for the real necessity of what needed to be picked. Which was basically beans and cukes on Friday. I even gave away the tomatoes you see in the above basket as I didn't have the energy to can any more. And yes I am getting better now. Filtered air, lots of drugs, and lots of rest. I miss my garden.
And again on Sunday. I should have picked my tomatoes on Sunday too as today the rain is again pouring. I wonder how many will crack with all this rain. Most of the tomatoes left in the garden are Market Miracle and Amish Paste and both aren't big crackers. The one Cherokee Purple sadly is. I'll have to cut parts out before I weigh this week.
And speaking of this week. I'll be traveling and may or may not have internet service. I might be able to get to all your posts, but probably not. I'll pre-schedule next Monday's post so you all can have fun without me. My garden will be taken care of. My townhouse mates will be here. I'll see if I can get them to harvest it all and weigh it. I hope so. But next Monday won't have many photos.
