It’s the last day of July, and I’ve finally picked some ripe tomatoes. I already had gathered some green tomatoes earlier that had fallen off the vines.
Actually, someone was “picking” the tomatoes before I got to them. The tomato on the left in the photo below looks like it was pecked by a bird. The one on the right may have been eaten by a bird too but it could have been something else. Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, like to eat tomatoes. I decided to pick some tomatoes that weren’t quite ripe rather than risk them being harmed. I picked the green tomato because it was on a damaged branch and I thought it wouldn’t grow any more.
My daughter helped me pick blackberries. There were many more ripe berries tonight than there were two days ago.
There probably are some beans and eggplant that are ready to be harvested too, but it’s too dark now.
