I spent four of the last five days at the LPGA tournament in Ottawa, pretty fun to watch some amazing ladies play golf! So I have not spent much time in the garden. And the little time I did spend was harvesting ... mostly cucumbers. These are Spacemaster cukes.
I've pulled the cucumber plants as they were dying off and I now have about 15 pounds - guess I'm making pickles this year! The picture above is only about half of what I now have in the kitchen. And in the bottom left corner, you'll see a Sweet Dumpling, the first winter squash to be harvested.
And the main photo shows three more tromboncino squash - in the picture, you may see that two of them had started to sprout and one even has a blossom on its sprout! One was sliced and grilled for dinner Sunday.
I've also harvested about 5 pounds of tomatoes. Some (shown above, mostly forme de coeur) have already been processed into 3 litres of salsa, along with a few sweet peppers from last week. And the rest will likely be canned as puree or as a pasta sauce - haven't decided yet.
And here's a link to the Harvest Monday collections hosted by Our Happy Acres. I will pop on over there myself and see what other gardeners are doing this week!
