Garden Harvest 9/1/10

With cooler temperatures the garden is in full swing now.  Today I was able to harvest a bucket of garden yummies!

About half the bucket is tomatoes!  I've got a bunch of different varieties including Early Girl, Viva Italia, Lemon Boy, Celebrity, Cherry, Grape, Sweet Tangerine (not picture because it didn't make it into the bucket...) 

And... maybe you know what this green variety is???

Here's some pictures of my harvest today!

Here's a close up of my Swiss Chard... yum!  Some of this is going into my morning smoothie and the rest will be for dinner!

And this photo shows an ear of Mandan Corn.  This corn was grown by the Mandan Indians along the Missouri River.

Isn't it pretty?  The stalks are short between 3 & 4 feet and the ears are small about 5 or 6 inches in length.  Perfect for my square foot garden!


  1. Wow your garden is doing well! Have you tried Chard on pizza? Mmmm! I tried it this summer just experimenting, it was good.

  2. Hi Shawn Ann! Thank you! No, I haven't tried swiss chard on pizza... but... how did you know that it was pizza night here? I will try it!!!

  3. A chard smoothie???? That's unheard of..hehe. I started to plant some the other day, but don't even know if i'll like it or not....

  4. EG, if you like greens, you'll probably like swiss chard! I should have provided a few more details of what's going into my smoothie... as it's NOT just swiss chard!!! I use a lot of frozen berries like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.

  5. The corn if very pretty. I do love purple veggies.

  6. I've been wondering how much kale I could hide in a smoothie. Great way to get my greens on these days.


I *LOVE* your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
