Garden Harvest 2012Posted: September 25, 2012
It’s finally here! Harvest 2012 has arrived!! Justin and I were SUPER excited to start collecting our treasures from the garden over the weekend. It was so nice to see the fruits of our labour from the last 4 months! And I’m very excited to share my excitement with you, dear readers!
Here’s a before shot of the big green garden.
And here’s a before shot of the potato patch. Note the rhubarb leaves in the corner.
Here’s the massive zucchini plant, once harvested and ripped up. He got so big this year!
Here’s my hard working Justin, digging up out potato treasures.
The last of the monster zucchinis! I’m happy that I soon wont have to try and figure out what to do with them anymore. 🙂
Here’s the after shot of the garden, once everything had been pulled and cut, for compost. I left the strawberry patch intact. We are going to get a LOT of ruby reds next year!
Here is an after shot of the potato patch, all dug up.
Now for the fruits (of vegetables) of our labour! Here’s what was left of the rhubarb. I decimated the plant, knowing full well that it will come back in vigor next year.
Check out this awesome carrot! He’s hugging his neighbour!
Ok, from this angle, it looks like he’s trying to take him down… haha!
18 potato plants = this many potatoes! Take a look at these beauties, all washed and ready to roll! They’re so pretty, ern’t they?
Here’s the bulk of the harvest, drying out after a wash.
We got 7 acorn squash! Hot damn! I am so unbelievably excited to showcase some acorn recipes this winter!
Here are the remainder of the green beans. 7 rows was definitely a lot. I liked it. More next year!
Here are also the tasty treats we picked during the pre-harvest frost that happened last week. We got some corn at least, and two decently large buttercup squash (despite the theft of a large one in July)! You’ll definitely be seeing those beauties in future recipes!
And so that concludes the garden posts for 2012. Thanks to everyone who showed interest in our Urban Gardening adventures. Stay tuned for next summer’s awesome endeavors!
