There's also a cut in the stem - bad picture I know. It's not deep, but deep enough that I don't know if the plant is going to make it. We'll see. Regardless, next year I need to get the fruit in a place that gets a lot of sun. Thinking about the side yard for next year.
The asparagus beans have turned into a jumble of a mess! They've flopped over the back of the trellis and are just going nuts! I've pulled a handfull of beans, but nothing major. Good thing it only takes two or three to make a dish out of, although I've learned they don't store very well on the counter or fridge. Not even for just a few hours. They get limp and floppy. I need to harvest them right before I need them for the best results.
Here's the tomato harvest today as shown in my handy-dandy, fancy pants tomato basket.
I've got another batch of tomatoes going in the dehydrator now. Sure beats them going rotten on the counter. I don't have enough at any one time for sauce, but I'm not eager to make another batch of salsa. Dehydrating for snacking seems to be the way to go with these since the neighbors are already saying no to taking more tomatoes.
I've lost the little honey bees, haven't seen one of those in ages, but these bumble bees are working all day long. They're power houses!
Other than that, we had about 4 days of very mild weather. Very mild - almost disturbingly so. We got a lot done in the garden and the peppers just bloomed out of control. Hopefully they'll produce something - besides a few tiny jalapenos, I haven't gotten any peppers worth mentioning this year.
The new bee ribbon just came in for the keychains! It's a thinner ribbon for the thinner webbing. I like it a lot. Still can't wait for the chicken ribbon. That's when I'll be doing my happy dance.
