Weekend Harvest

We just picked some vegetables and fruit from our garden.  Botanically, I guess they’re all classified as fruit as they all contain seeds.

eggplant, tomatoes, green beans, and blackberries

The pole beans (‘Kentucky blue’ and ’emerite’ varieties) were producing heavily in July, but the hot, dry weather seems to have slowed them as they have had fewer blossoms lately.  It has cooled a little now that we’re in August and I expect they will come back.

I picked a few tomatoes and eggplant last week, but now these hot weather crops are taking off.  So far, we have ripe tomatoes from cherry tomato ‘nectar’ and the new ‘garden gem’ variety.  The eggplant, ‘ichiban’ , are the only type I have planted the past few years.  The long, slender fruit seem more tender than other varieties.

These are the first fruit we have harvested from our thornless blackberry brambles this year, although birds found a few ripe blackberries before we did.
