It seems like only yesterday…. Here’s July 24:

And today:

140921 tomato zuchinni

The cucumbers are behind me for this picture. Over the last few days we’ve pulled the tomatillos, Romas, Krims, and Oregon Spring tomatoes.

The tomatillos were starting to drop fruit on the ground in earnest. It seemed like a good time to cut our losses and harvest regardless of the size of the fruit. On the left sheet tray is ten pounds of Romas.

The basil, post harvest, and cucumbers:

A closeup of the Taxis. We’ll probably pull this plant in the next few days, depending upon the forecast:

The zuchinni are winding down too, though parts of the plants are still trying to produce:

The peppers are still doing well. The Pasillas (right) and Thai Hot (left). I think the big yellow ones are Gypsy (?):

Brussels Sprouts. They’re finally getting towards harvestable:

140921 brussels sprouts

The two empty EarthBoxes were planted today with bunch onions (scallions) a variety of nantes carrots. The little 2″ pots also have bunch onions. The “whisky barrel” has romaine (Winter Density) and arugula. Hopefully these haven’t been started too late:
