We had some nice sunny weather this week again. The garden ate it up. We’re now officially “in gear”.
To quote last year’s post:
47.1 pounds of produce this week, including 38.5 pounds of tomatoes.
The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting cooler. The cucumbers are completely finished, and the Tromboncino may not be far behind. The tomatoes have begun to randomly drop fruit. If it’s not Fall already then it’s coming real soon.
…and 14.9 pounds this week. Roughly 1/3 tomatoes, 1/3 Tromboncino, and 1/3 cucumbers. On the bright side the cucumbers (and everything else) are still a long way from finished. And the weather has been much warmer lately. There’s still time for a late rally.
On to the pictures:

Tromboncino (rear and top.) Lemon cucumbers (front). The leaf color is marginal, but they’re still producing:
A “purple” tomato variety — Paul Robeson. These are new to us. So far, so good:
The opposite side of the Black Krim box has Tigerellas. They’re much easier to get to:
It’s a slow year, and the Romas are even slower:
