Weekend Harvest

It rained Thursday, we were busy Friday, and it rained again Saturday, so there was a lot of produce waiting for us in the garden today.

tomatoes, blackberries, peppers, eggplant, okra, and beans

tomatoes, blackberries, peppers, eggplant, okra, and beans

The two small bowls at the front contain ‘nectar’ cherry tomatoes and blackberries.  In the large bowl on the left there is an assortment of tomatoes; the largest one is ‘Polish linguisa’ and the striped tomato next to it is ‘speckled Roman’.

The large bowl on the right contains several ‘Takiis ace’ bell peppers that are turning red, some ‘yellow banana’ peppers that have turned orange, several jalapeno peppers that have turned red, a few eggplant (purple), and two okra.  You don’t have to let the peppers turn color, but as they are produced faster than we can eat them, we leave the fruits on the plants until we need them.

The bag at the back contains pole beans from the three varieties we planted, ‘Kentucky blue’, ’emerite’, and ‘rattlesnake’.
