At the beginning of the week I harvested my yellow onions. I’m pleased with the size of these. They’re bigger than last year’s onions from sets. They were outside in the sun for a day or two, then went into the attic to finish drying as rain was forecast. I’ll weigh them when they’re dry.
Here’s another harvest later in the week.
Also, I trimmed and weighed the garlic. It came to over 8 lbs. One bunch became a braid, the rest is set in ball jars like flowers.
I also picked some dried beans that were looking ready, they are cannelloni. I also picked the popcorn. Both will be weighed after they dry. I was worried winds might blow the corn over and that all the rain would be detrimental to it’s drying. It had so-so pollination. Now it’s in the attic to dry. There’s also some tomatillos and peppers in the basket.
We did get 4 inches of rain from Irene, but not as much wind as predicted. Everything seems to have held up well. The chickens are happy to be back out in the run today instead of inside in the coop!
Harvests this week: 32.59 lbs
Harvests this year: 147.54 lbs
