The garden keeps rolling along here at Stoney Acres. Here’s a look at what we harvested last week:
Two more watermelons finished ripening including this 6 pound Crimson Sweet and a very small 2 pound Sugar Baby.
The strawberries are still humming along with another 5 pounds this week. We now have 3 big gallon size bags in the freezer for toppings all winter. These two never made it to the freezer!!
The raspberries are slowly gaining speed we picked 2 small bowls like this one in the last 2 days, they should really start coming on next week.
Yellow crook neck squash is over running our kitchen. We planted a lot of these this year so that we could feed some to the chickens. It turns out chickens don’t really like it all that much, so I guess we will have a freezer full this year.
The weather really cooled this week and that has slowed the ripening tomatoes, we only picked a couple this week but the plants are loaded with a bunch that are almost ready so we should be back canning next week. There were a bunch of cherry tomatoes that we ate today along with a few cucumbers.
The tail end our our corn harvest has arrived. Although still very tasty about all we have left are more like these tiny ears we picked on Saturday.
The big numbers came from our onions this week. They were dug three weeks ago and finished curing today. The final weigh in for onions this year was 68 pounds!! That’s a solid 20 pounds more than we will need to take us to next spring so we will be sharing a bunch with family and neighbors.
