This week's veggie pick up + onion harvesting

Greetings!  This week has brought cloudy skies, some rain, and a wonderful respite from the heat.  Most of the veggies are having a good time in this weather.  Many of the spring greens are petering out, but we will be planting another batch of them soon.  We are busy cleaning up the fields from the spring planting, in preparation to put in some cover crops and the fall/winter crops. 

This week's veggies, small:
Carrots
German Johnson heirloom tomato
Gold beets
Sweet yellow onions
Garlic
Armenian Cucumber


Large (no photo this week :( )
Carrots - double amount
German Johnson heirloom tomato
Gold beets
Sweet yellow onions
Garlic
Armenian Cucumber + sugar crunch Persian cucumber
Yukon Gold potatoes
Curly Kale
Sungold cherry tomatoes
Salad turnips
French Sorrel

We've also been harvesting our onions.  This year we put in considerably more, as in three times more plants, than any previous year.  Our onions have sold out usually by late September in past years, but this year we intend to do the winter market, so we hope this harvest will be enough!  Now we're realizing that we are tight on space to cure all the onions!  We have been pulling them in batches as their tops fall in the field, so we will have enough space to rotate them all in.
This photo is maybe a 5th of the onion crop so far.  The tables on the right are also double stacked!
