The 2011 Harvest Has Begun

Back in May, I posted about Building a Growcamp Greenhouse and since then we’ve added additional outdoor pots and a small fenced area for various plants as well. While we’ve already picked a few things here and there, yesterday was our first “harvest” that resulted in enough food to cover the bottom of a bowl or two.

First up is a batch of Fresno Chillies that we picked mainly because the plant had some branches fall down (we crowded them a bit too much). So they’re rather green but still tasty. We’ll probably try freezing some of them, since we’d like to have year-round access.

Fresh Chilies

Next up is a couple handfulls of blueberries. These should be really good in our morning smoothies.


If I remember, I’ll take some pictures of the garden and growing areas soon. We have used a fair amount of basil already this season and are looking forward to about 6 other chili varieties, tomatoes, blackberries, and lots of other goodies.
