Last Year’s End of the Year Total

Last year’s harvest tally from around this time of year can be found here.  With all the warm weather this Spring and the hot and humid weather we’re having this summer I think it’s safe to say we’re probably two weeks ahead of where we were last year…although last year our first harvest of tomatoes until August 11th.  Oh, and I should also probably mention that we garden for two families (4 adults and three children) so we split the harvest.

  1. Hehe, that is a funny looking carrot!

  2. Oh I had to laugh at the poor little carrot. It just doesn’t know which way to grow.

    • It was definitely one confused little fellow! Out of a typical harvest of carrots we often end up with a small handful of them that are oddly shaped. It can be quite comical!

  3. If you had left that carrot in the ground, it might have grown more “legs”! I love it when our harvests entertain us like that.

  4. Your harvests are really adding up!

  5. I think we should call it tripod to avoid the other thing it resembles which is two legs and a dangly bit or perhaps that’s just me. I find the oddly shaped carrots very entertaining.

    We are at least 2 weeks early here too.

    • heh…I was avoiding the whole naming thing. I prefer to go Daphne’s route and instead reflect on the difficulty this poor little root had in trying to figure out which way to grow! :0)

  6. What a funny carrot! I like not naming it, too. Quite a big harvest you had. Your families should be stocked for awhile.
