Here's another Harvest Monday update from Eight Gate Farm. Isn't August flying by? This is going to be a long post, so I'll try to keep the babble to a minimum.
I picked the first "Horizon" tomatoes. I got a free sample packet last year, and liked them. I'm out of seeds, and not sure I want to buy more, but they are a nice slicer tomato.
I picked a couple of red onions for a recipe. The leaves are still green, so the main harvest of them will come later. This is a hybrid variety called "Barolo," and is new to me. It looks like they will get very large.

Here's Wednesday's harvest:

On Saturday I took all the remaining Latte sweet corn. It was much more than I could eat, so TKG cut off the kernels from the others for the freezer. This comes in handy for hearty meals in winter. I have another crop of a different variety that should be ready soon.

The other had eggplants. I like eggplant, but too much is too much. I've reduced the number of plants I grow, but it outfoxed me by being extra productive this year.
