July Harvest Totals

This July has been productive. We've really enjoyed a surprise harvest of volunteer potatoes. We took them out as baby potatoes because they were destroying our onions. Very tasty Purple Vikings and German Butterballs from Fedco.

Our larger potato patch is doing well. We have a new 20x10 corn bed with Silver Queen growing. They look wonderful. We're also enjoying what could become a bumper crop of watermelon. The winter squash is a moving kind of slowly. We're patiently waiting to see more fruit starts.

Finally, here's a picture of some of our Ventura celery harvest and sauerkraut we're fermenting. Happy Gardening!

Cabbage (Red) 15 lb 14 oz
Celery 4 lb  2 oz (Ventura)
Kale 2 lb 8 oz
Onions  5 lbs (Walla Walla & Rossa Lunga)
Potatoes 10 lb (volunteers)
Squash (summer) 3 lb 1 oz
Tomatoes 26 lb 14 oz
Okra 4 oz

Total 67 lb 11oz


  1. Sounds like a great month! We are looking forward to a bumper crop of Watermelon as well. We just have to wait a couple more week!!

    1. Thanks Stoney Acres. I don't think our watermelon will be ready before early September. Maybe the humidity slows them down a bit. Enjoy your harvest!

  2. I've been growing the same variety of celery and picking as needed. I might take a plant down soon so I can freeze some.
