Pickage!

Cherry tomatoes, a couple of Romas, an Arkansas traveler or two, a banana pepper and cucumbers. Headed out of town so will take them as a hostess gift.

I had my first blueberry of the season last night.  No picture this year.

Interesting science! Home grown tomatoes and veggies taste much better if your "farm" has a nicer entrance. :B

Almost done.

This morning's pickage.  Had to get out there before the high of 107F today.  Some of the squash got very large but they're really growing fast in this warm weather.  Also a lot of things don't get picked until I get here for the weekend.

Been gone for a week. There were a few small cukes when I left, too small to pick. I got back to The Cucumbers That Ate The Back Yard, a dozen of them as long as my forearm and about that big around. They were firm and a good color, though, so I went on and brought them in, along with a half-dozen more reasonably sized ones, and made pickles (see preserving thread). Also on the pickage list today: a couple of small zucchini, one large yellow squash, and a few tomatoes.

Killer cucumbers.

Tomatoes and squash. These Sungold yellow/orange cherry tomatoes are the sweetest, best things I've ever tasted. I eat them like candy.

Nice produce everyone.

I have the cookbook Gran Cocina Latina by Maricel Presilla.  Won a IACP cookbook and a James Beard Award.  BUT, one needs Amarillo peppers for most of the recipes.  We can't get these here and they are used mostly fresh.  So, I found a website that sold the seeds, which I bought and duly grew up into seedlings.  This growing season has been very cold so my poor little South American peppers are beside themselves.   They are half the size of our usual North American pepper plants.  So I am paying loads of attention to them, watering, fertilizing, weeding, talking to, anything I can think of to get them to grow.  Here is a picture.  They are the ones on the left of my Jalapeño plants.  I also have some panca peppers.  They were very difficult to get to germinate.  Two tries before I was successful.

The garlic on the other hand is great.  I have stopped watering and will harvest in a couple of weeks.

Everyone's stuff looks so good!!!  

 

I'm not counting my chicks before they hatch, but the garden here looks so much better than last year.  I really really hope the tomatoes keep on keepin' on.  You can't tell the scale by this picture, but some of the 'maters are almost baseball sized already.  I can't wait for red ones!

Just a quick snap of half of the tomatoes.

Aside from lettuce and a few snow peas, I don't have much produce, only the promise held out by blossoms.
