Unbelieveable, but just when I think the tomatoes are done, more roll in! I find myself having them on my counter longer, awaiting enough to do something with, so the end is very near. My UFO's and Orange Wellingtons are done, no tomatoes and minimal blossoms, so they will come out this week. Good thing I didn't wait until September, my usual heavy tomato month, to save seeds because the unusually hot summer has shortened the life span of everything around here. The only ones coming in now are the small Fourth of July and Romas.
this morning: Fish Hot Pepper, Mini Bells, Quadrato Bells, Romas and small hybrid tomatoes, yard long beans and yay - the wax beans are producing again!
Still have not harvested the jalapenos, I don't do anything other than glare at them when I go into the garden...
...every branch has this many on it!
and I have a WHOLE BED of them, help!
I will be busy blanching and freezing beans and pepper strips all evening, and hanging hot peppers to dry. I really wanted to start ripping plants out today, but have been so busy and tomorrow looks like temps will be more pleasant, so the squash bugs have been granted a stay of execution for 24 hours! I managed to avoid the garden chores for much of the weekend, I'll have photos of that posted later.
I will leave you with my favorite part of the garden right now: Yard Long Beans!
This curtain of beauty is what greets me as I walk in the garden gate, enjoy! And put 'em on your list for next year, they are wonderful!
