Late in the week we had a couple of days approaching 80 degrees. This morning I harvested vegetables in a light drizzle, which is more normal for this time of year. The forecast for at least the next seven days calls for rain and highs in the mid-60’s. Likely we’ll see cloudy and mid-60’s for the remainder of the month.
19.9 pounds of produce for the week. 18.3 pounds of that was harvested this morning. (Note that I’m only weighing the produce from the EarthBoxes. Everything else is an easy bonus.)
Closeup 1. The peppers — ( [L-R] from top left – Anaheim, deformed Lipstick, Yellow Bell. [L-R] from Bottom Left – Carmen, Iko Iko, NuMex, Jalapeno.)
Closeup 2. Tomatillos. The tomatillo plants are really winding down, so I pulled the “most ready” fruits — about half of the remaining total.
Closeup 3. Tomatoes — (L-R) Sun Gold, Sweet Million, Oregon Spring, Taxi, Black Krim, Tigerella
Closeup 4. More Tomatoes — Romas, Cosmonaut Volkov. It’s about time the Volkov did something.
We planted garlic about two weeks ago:
Some of the radishes are ready for harvest (French Breakfast, Cherry Bell, Dragon):
