The green tomatoes from the downed plant.
Beans and zucchini. Our beans never grow beautifully long and straight like so many I've seen on other blogs. They get short, dumpy, fat and stringy instead. Still good eating, however. The Fortex pole beans are just coming in. I'm thinking those are all I'll grow from now on. There's nothing like them for flavor and texture.
Here's a bit of what I pulled for the kids' first veggie box.
Tons of tomatoes.
A late night harvest using my favorite collection method.
And the start of this week's tomato fiesta is below.
Last night for our Fourth of July celebrations I made a tomato and cucumber salad from all of the four different types of tomatoes in the garden. It was a huge bowl, and it was scarfed up pretty quickly which was nice. A woman was there who has milk goats, chickens and just got a cow to milk as well. See...if I did get chickens, now I'd have someone to apprentice under!
