Harvest Monday - August 20, 2012

Last week was probably my last big tomato harvest. I've eaten some in salads and the rest was used to make some tomato sauce. I think next year I will try to plant tomatoes that have more yield. This year, I've had good harvests but not as much as I hoped. 
Cherokee purple, mortgage lifter and Brandywine
Roma tomatoes
I got my first red pepper! It was pretty delicious, probably could have left it on the plant for longer. I see more are coming so I'm looking forward to that!

The Ichiban eggplant is still producing some eggplants. They are a bit thin, but still delicious. out of all the eggplants, the Ichiban has been the best producers with little to no problem. Both the plant in the container and in-ground has done well.

  3. Looks wonderful and very colorful. I pick my tomatoes on taste even if they don't produce many tomatoes.

    1. That was the idea this year. The cherokee tomatoes are my favorite. But I would like to have a good producer as well. So maybe I will try a mixture...

  4. you could make fried green tomatoes with your green tomatoes because frost is coming. you could also recycle veggies next year bottom of celery, scallions, lettuces. coriander, dill seed? Sweet potatoes for delissh greens. multicolored potatoes to plant them. garlic for the delish greens
    spruted ginger for shoots and leaves for tea and tender roots.
