Let's have a little fun! Share your recent harvest photos! What crops are you super excited about this year? Any crops you are disappointed with?

One of the crops we have had fun with this season is miniature white cucumbers! It is a delicate dance to get them at their prime. They grow very fast! Crisp, delicious, prolific!

If you are on Instagram, check out our most recent harvests on our stories and in the Flourish CSA stories:) You can find us on Instagram @growcreateinspire

Nice idea!

Here are the first zucchinis from rather poor soil, some onions and garlic more like a status update to see whats up underground and some garlic heads.

'Mater! Biggest so far. Most have been much smaller this year. I now realize I haven't taken many pics this year.

Things have been slowing down, lately, in the heat; but I've been getting lots of zucchini, ground cherries, and yard-long beans; as well as a trickle of tomatoes and bell/banana peppers. Here's some pictures from this growing season of some of the harvests.

Ah nice, I tried to grow the gherkin / cucamelon but it was very sensitive as a seedling. I think I overwatered it. Was it easy for you to grow?

I just harvested my first batch of potatoes yesterday! The plants above ground had white mold on the stems so I thought it best to remove the plants and go ahead and harvest early... For having planted only 8 old inedible potatoes, I am happy with this meager early harvest!

Picked the tomatoes yesterday.  Sadly, I wasn't feeling well all of June/early July (not Covid related), and more than half of my ripe tomatoes went to the birds, ants, and time due to my lack of motivation.  Also got a horrible spider mite infestation during that time that I'm not sure will be worth the effort to remedy.  I've easily pulled over 200lbs of various items out of the garden since March, so it's all good.

Yellow pear, different cherries, and Brad's atomic tomatoes.  This came from half of one bed.  I still have one and a half beds the same size to pick.  The atomic tastes pretty good, but it didn't colorize like in the catalogue.  Garlic in the back pulled a few weeks ago (currently making my first batch of black garlic in a crock pot, been on "keep warm" setting for about a week.  Squash pulled late last week.
I still have a colander of Matt's wild tomatoes that I need to cut and dry...........maybe today.  Maybe it'll end up chicken food....

Going to try dehydrating the tomatoes right now.  I just put them in the solar dehydrator about an hour ago (1998 toyota 4 runner) and it's over 120f (maximum reading on thermometer) after only an hour in the sun.

I'm guessing close to 110F for the high today (it was only 95f outside when I took the picture), and about 10% humidity.  Today is the first day I'll have ever tried drying fruit on purpose.

I didn't expect that cucumbers are so hard to spot :D (the yellow beans were much simpler ;) )
