Harvest Monday - October 3, 2011

New fall crops:  Shanghai Bok Choy, Napa Cabbage thinnings, and Royal Burgundy Snap Beans.
Summer crops continue to produce:  Ichiban eggplants, long beans, peppers, and cherry tomatoes.

I've been craving for some leafy greens all summer, now the weather finally cools down and the first planting of Asian greens and lettuces are taking off, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will not become some critters' salad bar.

Drop by Daphne's Dandelions host of Harvest Monday for more harvests by other gardeners around the globe.


  1. Absolutely Beautfiul! It will be a while before there are any Asian Greens around here.

  2. That harvest looks fabulous and varied - the chinese cabbages look just perfect - mine always seem to have holes all through them....

  3. Wow! Those are gorgeous greens! The Royal Burgundy bush beans are beautiful too... I have become a real fan of that variety. I am impressed with the lack of insect damage on these fall greens. I can do that well in the spring by racing the plants to maturity before the bugs get too prevalent, but fall is another matter since the bugs have been increasing and sizing up all summer long.

  4. kitsapFG,
    Thanks, I like the purples beans too, they seem to tolerate cool temp better than the green variety.

    My situation is exactly opposite of yours, greens don't do well for me in spring, they either bolt or bug infested, I'll have to try some fast maturity type of greens next year.

  5. very pretty. I hope I get some bak choi!

  6. Those Chinese Cabbage are looking so delicious, where did you bought the seeds?


  7. Shawn Ann,
    Thanks, hope your bok choy grows well for you.

    I bought the seeds from San Francisco Chinatown, but you can get them from and

  8. thanks, I like your blog a lot.
