    Default My harvest so far 2010

    I grew a few things without killing them this year.

    Small amount of cauliflower



    The second batch of broccoli



    The first head of broccoli


    The first batch of broccoli


    Brandywine heirloom tomato


    Those are my wife's hands not mine just as an FYI.

    We've got some black mission figs that should be ready to eat soon. Our basil, rosemary and garlic chives have been producing steady for months now.

    Yeah man, we've had it steamed, did some stir-fry, some fresh and did an alfredo dish with it in there. As soon as we got through the first batch the second growth was ready to pick. I'm really diggin this growing my food thing.

    I have to admit when I read the subject title, and seen who started it, this isn't exactly what I thought you would be harvesting.

    Self sufficiency is the way to go this century, so that is good to see. Farming will be where it's at as the decades unfold some more. I can't seem to give out any rep, so will just say that even though I don't like broccoli, that is a very good picture of a head of broccoli. In terms of tastiness the tomato is probably more my thing.

    In Quebec, it is quite common that most family on the countryside (or a lot of them) are growing their own veggies. I remember when my grandma and grandpa used to be a bit younger and not on the verge of going back to earth (so all my youth), they had that incredibly huge garden with any veggies you could possibly hope for. Today my mom, her brother and 2 sisters all have their own gardens and the day I'll have a home, if I have enough land, I think i'll do the same; There's nothing as good old vegetables from a garden for taste and freshness and as Killersheep stated, it is quite rewarding to grow our own stuff.

    New transplants, Romaine lettuce, not sure if the it will get too hot before they grow, but I'm gonna take the chance.



    Onion Chives, I love these, they make just about everything taste better


    Quinalt Strawberries, not quite ready, but they're getting there


    Young and Old Rosemary, the old mature one is ridiculously huge.

    Yeah it feels great working the land, as a note to what you said you don't need a lot of land to grow some stuff. A pot with a tomato plant will provide tons of tomatoes if you keep the nitrogen levels correct. Almost all herbs too can be grown and thrive in small pots.

    I've gotta say for some reason the idea's always appealed to me but I've never done it, partially cause I've always lived in apartments after I left my parents house. Even then I could do herbs or something. My mom grows herbs, when I was home for the holidays made some rosemary chicken and spaghetti sauce with the basil, was good.

    Yeah Basil and Rosemary are really easy to grow inside and they are not picky about being watered and stuff, in short if you give them attention once or twice a month they'll do fine.

    I thought we going to see some nice crystallized buds


    Nice produce though. If I had a yard i'd love to grow fresh organic vegetables. Nothing can beat homegrown quality.

    Were you talking about this?



    @Cortez, out of focus to see crystallization
