We harvested all the Kennebec potatoes, weighing in at about 28 pounds. This was fun!
We had first pickings of several tomatoes. This is Pink Brandywine, to many people the gold standard of heirloom tomatoes. We agree.
Here's a sampling of our continuing harvests.
|From top: Green Globe artichoke, Cocozelle di Napoli zucchini, Yaya carrots, Diva cucumber, Dar cucumber.|
|Top: Anaheim peppers. Middle: Mitoyo eggplant (1), Midnight Queen (2), Nadia (2). Bottom: Ping Tung|
|Top: Calima filet beans, blueberries. Middle: Juliet tomatoes, Yellowfin zucchini, Diva and Dar cucumbers. Bottom: Early Jalapenos.|
|White Egg turnip|
From her community garden plot, TKG brought home this:
I still think the tiny Cucamelons (at the top) are funny. But they do taste good. I think this is the same thing as Mouse Melons or Mexican Sour Gherkins.
I close with a picture of a row of Sun Spot Dwarf Cola sunflowers, which came into bloom this week. They are supposed to be only 2 - 3 feet tall, but mine are more like 3 - 4 feet. The foliage forms a nice skirt. We'd like to plant a hedge of them next year somewhere.
