Earthbox Garden: Week 15
July 31, 2011
Our little garden continues to grow and be amazing!
I harvested another large zucchini and see a smaller one I should be able to get probably Tuesday, along with a small yellow squash. There are several lovely blossoms on the yellow squash plant and I saw a couple bees working in them!
The bell peppers are still looking good, too. One plant has three big peppers, but I have decided to leave them to see if they will turn red. I had to harvest one small one because it was burned.
Both tomato plants are FULL of tomatoes in varying sizes and colours. I grabbed three perfectly ripe red ones today, but I saw several that were just turning and will be ready for harvest by next weekend (if not sooner!):
Here's my harvest for this week:
I chopped up the tomatoes and pepper and added them to a pasta salad with chunk tuna for a quick and delicious lunch:
