I'm a little late getting my Harvest Monday post up because we are in a heat wave here (nothing like as bad as the west coast has had, but hot enough with high humidity) and the mornings are the time I have to be out in the garden getting the work done. If it isn't done by 10am in this heat it won't get done! After the garden work I had a meeting to go to and then had to wait my turn to get to the computer. But finally: Harvest Monday, hosted by Daphne's Dandelions each week where fellow garden bloggers share what they've been gleaning from their gardens this week. Head on over and be inspired!
It has been a productive week in the garden despite the heat with some of the cool weather crops petering out and the warm weather plants getting ready to ramp up production. I am still harvesting lettuce of the heat tolerant variety, but unfortunately I accidentally deleted my photo of it. Some lettuce is beginning to bolt and some is getting slightly bitter, but still pleasantly edible. I have a variety called Pablo that is a reddish-pinkish summercrisp type that takes the prize for being non-bitter even in temperatures in the 90s.
So that's it for this week's harvest! I'm anxiously awaiting that first tomato and cucumber. There are babies out there that just need to size up and ripen. Hoping for a little rain and a break from the heat in the days to come!
