Harvest Monday - June 11th 2018

This post is part of the Harvest Monday series over at Our Happy Acres.

Cucumbers! Eggplant! Beans! Most of these Maxibel beans went straight into my mouth. The eggplants are patio baby, which are a new-to-me variety that I absolutely love.
Pretty plants. Terrible photo.

Last year my eggplants were really vigorous and healthy, grew into these huuuuge, round, spiky trees, and gave me like, one eggplant every three months and they usually had sunscald or something. I bought the Patio Baby seeds after reading the variety spotlight at Our Happy Acres. These are well behaved, compact plants. No spines! Tons of eggplants per plant. Well worth the money.
It was like this.
Last Kolibri. First tomatoes of this planting.

These cucumbers! Iznik! I love it. They're so prolific. They're container friendly. No mildew so far. Each plant has approximately 49930402 cucumbers on it. 

Two harvests in one week. These also went straight into my mouth. 

The remaining cukes went into smashed cucumber salad. 


  1. Lovely cucumbers! And I'm glad you like the Patio Baby eggplants. I have a couple here just about ready to harvest. I've got tomato envy though - still waiting for my first one!

  2. Sounds like everything is producing really well! My cucumbers have mildew already :(
    How nice to have your first tomatoes! That's such a great feeling! Gotta love the garden!

  3. Wow, there's tons of cucumbers on your plants. So great! And tomatoes already, I'm just a few weeks behind I think.

  4. Summer veggies already!? Sheesh, my cucumber plants just went into the garden today, it'll be a loooong time before they produce anything. I'm so envious.

  5. Cucumbers already! How good is that?? Mine have only just developed flowers and I keep looking hopefully to see if they have increased in size. Those first few always taste so special
