Undocumented Harvest

...



Let's face it, I'll never make a career as a garden blogger. The snails eat half my crops, and we gobble up everything before I remember to pull out the camera.

Did I take any photos of the pluots that have been ripening on our baby tree? Heck no! We were too busy wiping fruit juices off our chins.

And the shandies that we made from the beer we brewed with our own hops and homegrown lemonade? Delicious, refreshing, and down the hatch.

We're enjoying ourselves far too much.

You can read the exploits on non-sucky garden bloggers over at Daphne's excellent blog.

Haha! This happens to me all of the time! Fortunately, you (well, and the slugs I suppose) are enjoying your harvests.

LOL. I love this. I am glad you are enjoying your harvests.

While I would love the data, I totally cannot do it. I can't even keep an egg count. If someone else would do it, I'd be golden. But then I'd realize that without more attention, I'll never have stellar harvest. Maybe ignorance with full tummies is really better.

hmmm, maybe some of us just have a bit too much extra time on our hands, although it doesn't feel like it! Who cares if you keep track, have fun, and eat and drink well, that's all that matters.

I do that all the time with berries - they hardly ever make it to the house or get weighed and photographed. :D

I tried to remember to take photos and keep track of harvest, start of the season great but somewhere down the road .....
Yep my wildlife, like yours, are well fed.

Ha! Yes, there's always that! Glad to hear you're enjoying the fruits of your labor instead of just writing about them...it is kind of the point, ya know! ;-)

You're not alone! Substitute 'snails' for 'rodents', and this year we have the same problem. Some of what they don't eat, never makes it to the kitchen, as it gets snarfed in the garden directly. The most important thing though is that you enjoy your garden, documented or not.

LOL, that is too funny. I forget to take pictures too. It always seems like everyone else's vegetables look bug/weather damage free. I tell myself it is my inexperience:)

how funny, I forget to take pics sometimes too but it sounds like you are having a lovely time!
