This past Tuesday I did a pretty complete harvest in the garden and took a good-sized basket to Monika, who has been tending the house in Cherry Hill.  I returned yesterday and what you see above is what became harvest-ready in the four days I was away.  It comes to 34 pounds overall and includes Early Girl tomatoes; six varieties of summer squash (Costata Romano, Dark Green, Ambassador, Golden Zucchini, Scallop, Lemon); pole beans (Kentucky Wonder and Emerite); bush beans (Royal Burgundy); four varieties of cucumber (White Wonder, Marketmore 76, Poinset 76 and American slicing); two varieties of snap peas (Cascadia and Super Sugar), and plenty of basil for a batch of pesto.


Now of course the work begins to store much of this away for fall and winter…
