Beans, Peppers, Tomato, Okra, & Pawpaws

The pole bean harvest is much less than it was last month, probably because it is much cooler, with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s °F (a range of 5 to 15 °C) most days.  The plants are still blooming though.

We continue to harvest peppers as they turn red.  We got another ‘Polish linguisa’ tomato tonight, a bonus of sorts as I thought my tomatoes were done for.  Okra is supposed to be a warm weather crop but it doesn’t seem to know that.  These pawpaw fruits were lying on the ground; many more are still on the trees, nearly ripe.  Too bad I really don’t know what to do with them — no-one I know is particularly fond of them.

In addition to my page on pawpaws, you can find more information from the California Rare Fruit Growers or Green Deane.
