Garden Bloggers Harvest Day in January

The Garden Bloggers Harvest Day that  Two Gardens have initiated is showing a generous following and we appreciate all those who enjoy getting their hands dirty and digging up delicious wholesome vegetables and picking scrumptious fruit. The new year has brought hot and windy weather to our southern shores, so summer hats and blockout is part of the gardening arsenal this month.

Let’s see what can be harvested from Barbie’s Garden this month

The year has started and I have very little to show in my harvest basket! Oh dear! Nothing seems ready for the picking quite yet – come on you lazy tomatoes!!  I have lots of herbs ready and I am pleased that I can finally pick my own sweet basil. I look back on last years’ harvest, and I have to say that I have refined my vegetable choices quite a bit to what works and what I enjoy eating and growing. A good deal less to harvest, but eaten all the same! The lazy holiday feeling has not helped either! Let me show you what I can harvest now and probably harvest soon, but not quite yet ….

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Your harvest is much more impressive than mine, but I think mine qualifies? It’s such a treat to check in on you during your warm summer days! Thanks, again, for hosting.

What a great topic. My vegetable garden only provides fresh food for part of the year but even in winter I can pull out fresh frozen peas or tomatoes which is such a joy. There’s nothing quite like the taste of home grown food.

Yum – I do like fried green tomatoes! And I’m so impressed with your broccoli! I didn’t even choose to grow any this year, my last year’s harvest was so unimpressive.

🙂 the lemon balm is contained in the patchwork area so I cut it down regularly and it grows better and bigger. This is the best it has looked.
