Sunday’s Pickings

Here’s what we got from our garden on Sunday:

Two jalapenos, a carrot, two onions, an anaheim pepper, and 2 cucumbers (smaller this time!). The onions were pretty small, but I am still happy with them because I started them from seed (and they are way bigger than last year!). The carrot looked great, but Joel took it in his lunch the next day and said it had turned rubbery…any ideas?

Last week, I harvested the first eggplant, and I am excited for more! The variety is Korean eggplant, and they are much smaller than the ones at the grocery. That’s great for a family of 2, because those others are so huge.

Finally, a week or so ago, we cut a broccoli crown. It was so small for how huge the plant is. Due to space, small output, and the trouble we’ve had with cabbage worm, this is our first and last broccoli crop.


  1. Your garden is producing–well done! I am with you on trying to grow broccoli (and cauliflower and brussels sprouts–they’re all in the same family), because they get decimated from the cabbage moths here too. You can cover them with row covers, but it’s kind of expensive. It just seemed like too much hassle and they didn’t produce that much but took up a lot of space in the garden. On a more happy note, I picked my first ‘Yukon Gold’ potato from the garden today!

  2. Harvesting is always the best part of having a garden. So what are you going to do with your eggplant? I made eggplant parmesan with mine. very tasty. I posted the recipe on my blog if you are interested.

  3. I made a weak eggplant parmesan with that first one, but I hope to make a real one soon. I’ll have to check out your recipe! Thanks!

  4. Ooh I’d like some Yukon Gold potatoes. We have one plant of potatoes going, but I have no idea what’s under the dirt. The green part is enormous, but I’ve never tried potatoes before. I hope you have a great crop!
