Harvest Monday 8/29/11

What a crazy week.  I am hoping those on the East Coast still have a garden to harvest from.  Haven't had a chance to check mine out as I am starting this Sunday evening about 9 PM and the winds are coming back and we have no power.  Well so much for starting on Sunday, it is now Tuesday and am just getting back here.  Hope late is better than nothing.  Still have no power.

Basil headed for the freezer

 4 pints of green beans and 3 pints of tomatoes.
7 pints of sauerkraut on its way to the basement to ferment.
Didn't take pictures of everything as it was just repeats.  The last picture of peppers I had already given 10 nice ones away before I too the picture.  Had 26 in all.

Totals for the week
Cucumbers 11 lbs 2 oz
Tomatoes 7 lbs
Green Beans 3lbs 5 oz
Green Peppers 4 lbs 8 oz
Zucchini 7 lbs 10 oz
Cabbage 4 lbs 12 oz
