Welcome to another Harvest Monday update from Eight Gate Farm. We had welcome relief from the heat and humidity this week, and some spotty rain, but not enough. We did have happy harvests though.
For "first harvests," I cut two good-sized Nadia hybrid eggplants.
"Midnight Queen" is another hybrid Italian-style eggplant, that is supposed to be earlier than Nadia. In my case, it was later by a few days. There's nothing wrong with it, but I think I'll just grow Nadia in the future.
I picked the first Brandywine Pink heirloom tomato, weighing over a pound and a half. It's our favorite variety. It's not much to look at on the outside.
But on the inside, pure bliss!

In fact, I was so excited to make a BLT with it that I forgot the L.
I picked the first Pink Berkeley Tie-Die, which is another super-flavorful selection.
