Harvest Monday- October 15, 2012

Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne's Dandelions. It's a great way to see what other bloggers are harvesting from their gardens.

I was surprised to find a few things while cleaning up the garden.  A large 'Quadrato D'Asti Giallo' pepper and several small 'Red Marconi' peppers.  There was also a nice sized 'Pritchard' tomato and two 'New Big Dwarf' tomatoes.



This week I have some great looking Swiss chard that needs harvesting.  Fall seems to be the time to grow chard here.  The cool nights
 produce incredible stem color and the lack of bugs is giving huge, perfect leaves.  Next year I may try summer planting for fall harvest.
