Final Harvest - Tongue In Cheek !

Harvest?   How dare I use that word!  I have been gardening for years but none compare to this year.  From the end of May until mid-July it rained.  And rained.  And rained.  Which would be great - if I were growing moss and mushrooms.  But that was not the case.  And I'm over it.  So in the interest of putting the garden to rest for this year.

Here is the final hu-hum harvest:

  • 1 Snake Gourd - 8 1/4 lbs
  • 1 Eggplant - 7 oz
  • 1 Atlantic GIANT Pumpkin - 15 1/6 lbs (I kid you not!)
  • Banana and Jalapeno Peppers - 6 oz
  • And a whole helluva lot of acorns
And not one.single.zucchini!  Now that's a statement!

The harvest brings back great memories of my father. He had a big garden in the back yard. He loved those long squash and would have to build a trellis so that they would have something to hang from. Thanks for the wonderful memories!
