Starting with the new, here's the first Juliet tomatoes. I don't really know why I never before grew this extremely popular variety, but I'm glad I started! Some consider it a grape tomato, but the fruit is much larger than any grape-type I've seen. The flavor may not be the best I've tasted, but it's pretty darn good, coming in on the acid-side more than sweet, which is what I like.
And the first "Maule's Red Hot" cayenne. Why don't all the peppers get red at the same time??

Two years ago I planted three small Walking Onion bulbs, and here is this year's result. They are so weird! We use them like shallots, though they are sharper-flavored.

Artichokes, yellow and green zucchini, and sadly the last Taxi tomato. The plant never thrived for some reason, and just gave up this week.
The last sugar snap peas, the nearly-last snow peas, the last kohlrabi, and oh-god-more-beans.
Soft fruits are still rolling in, with jostaberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I've been enjoying the blueberries on vanilla ice cream.
From the community garden plot shared by The Kitchen Goddess and her mother, comes this picture of plenty. She's especially proud of the tiny cucamelons, also known as mouse melons. I don't quite know what the fuss is all about.
And lastly, shishitos are continuing to give us an abundance.
That's all for this week, and again sorry for the long post. Thanks as always to Dave at HappyAcres.blog for hosting Harvest Monday.
