It's Harvest Time!
1st Grow Bag of Potato, for the season!
ABOVE, When Potato Greens get yellow, and die off, it means, time to harvest. Now, I don't know about what you've been told, but I have heard, that size doesn't matter... in fact, I heard that,
everyone knows - its not the size. its how it tastes.
Fair enough, I will simply empty the Grow Bag out, and sift thru for the big, beautiful bounty!
Below: Hand Sift, and separate the two varieties.
... mean while, I gathered THE SMALLEST ever, batch of potato! The left pile is called ruby Crescent and while some were a couple inches (4-5 cm), the majority were not impressive. The right pile, is Red Bliss. Again, they were growing to 3 to 4 inches (8-12 cm) on average, last year, but NOOOOooooooooo, not this year. Looks more like my Red Bliss, will not be bringing any bliss to any Bonnie Lasses this year, will they?
I am secure enough in my gardenhood that I can hold me head up high. I will have to over compensate with other things, I guess. Maybe a Corvette or new Mustang Convertible with a big 302Boss Engine? Oh, maybe I can claim it's cold out and that's why they're so tiny? Damn.
Below: I am beginning to see why these Cherry Tomato, are actually called Blueberry Cherry!
Below:Look closely, tons of onion starting to show, too!
Gardening To DO:
- Harvest 2nd Potato Grow Bag, replant immediately (3rd will wait for a week)
- Plant more red lettuce lettuce for the next round
- Harvest the salad greens that are almost going to bolt!
- thin carrot, think some more onion
- Pick a ton of Raspberry each day! Last year, once I started, it was almost a pint of Raspberry each day (half to freezer for later jelly and jam making)!
