Tomato Season

  Tomatoes; finally. About 10 days later than usual, but all the heirlooms are beginning to come in. Nice size, very little cracking, the bushes are loaded with them. No sign of blight (it's been a very wet year), plants are healthy and don't appear to be stressed. Should be an excellent crop.

  Added to the bell peppers, yellow and red cipolini onions, and eggplant, we should have some good eating. And with all the other crops producing abundantly, our menu choices are almost endless.

   We continue to add plantings for fall as space opens up from earlier crops. Bugs (pests) are surprisingly light this year and have been easy to control. The only disappointment so far has been mosaic on a couple of zuchinni and yellow squash plants. We pulled the infected plants and the others seem to be fine. The German Cream and Fingerling potatoes are producing great with no disease or scab whatsoever. I will definitely plant them again. The Asian cucumbers are prolific and get the thumbs up too!

 All this talk about food has made me hungry; it's time to go out and browse (eat) in the gardens.
