Weekend Harvest 04

With all the excitement lately, I haven’t spent much time in the garden.  This afternoon, we harvested several vegetables and more blackberries.

Several peppers had turned red or orange, according to their type.  We also found a lot of ripe tomatoes.  The Parks early challenge tomatoes, as well as being the first to yield fruit this summer, have resumed producing now that it’s fall.  They may be getting more sunlight (less shade) now, or perhaps they prefer cooler weather.  We picked all the eggplant that were of a usable size.  Insects have damaged the plants’ leaves to the point that they can’t produce much, and then (probably other insects) chew on some of the few fruits that do appear.  I picked some of the “volunteer” giant red mustard and pulled some of the fall crop radishes growing in garden bed number four.  There were a few more ripe tomatillos, and a nice bowl of ripe blackberries.
