This was a pretty good week in the garden for harvests. I harvested the last of the corn from my second planting of Peaches and Cream. The second planting of purple hulls produced like crazy this week. I also got a good batch of jalapenos. A great week from the garden, I am blessed.
The final count was 50 ears of corn out of a 4x8 bed planted with 72 plants. These where the runts of the group, but were still pretty good looking. I am happy with 50 ears out of 32 square feet. I was hoping for 72, but that may have been too much to ask.
I am now an expert pea sheller by hand. Every night this week I would pick a big batch of purple hulls and I would have about 30 minutes of shelling to do. This picture was the nicest from the week. That is a pretty huge mixing bowl full of pods.
Here is my first good harvest of jalapeno peppers. The top row is a no heat variety and the bottom row is regular jalapenos. I could definately tell a difference between the two. The no heat variety should be called low heat because they still had a little bite to them.
