This is a pic of a sampling of today's harvest...

It was a wonderful harvest day, I was able to take 1100 lbs to the FoodBank in one single day, I am soooo stoked ;-)

To make my goal of donating 8000 lbs this year, and with 8 weeks to go (Oct. 27th was First Frost last year), I knew I had to come up with 500 lbs per week, and then thought " maybe I bit off more than I can chew", but I was quite encouraged yesterday when my total was 1095 lbs.... Absolutely amazing, I am soooo happy ;-)

My Total Harvest up to today is.....4565 lbs WOO HOO ;-)

Hi adrock430,

RE: I'm Totally Blessed ;-)

I think Jon's secret is his awesome compost.

BTW What is the vegetable that looks sort of like an egg?


 o
RE: I'm Totally Blessed ;-)

Dragon Eggs ;-)

Just as prolific as Lemon Cucumbers , but just get larger without getting yellow and nasty, they stay white and crisp, just like young Lemon Cucs, They are my new replacement ;-)

All-Right All-Right,
My wife said it isn't a real representation of Today's Harvest if I don't include at least a little of everything (I didn't put in Grapes or Squash or Cucumbers /There are so many I assumed everyone would know those were obviously in the mix ;-)

So... ANYWAY ;-)

Here you go ! !
