Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Harvest Monday - Mid July

Here's what's come out of my vegetable garden this past week.

Lettuce and cucumbers on the 14th.


Basil, peppers, cucumbers and the first green beans on the 18th.


Cucumbers, green beans, and tomatoes on the 20th.


Now I don't usually pick green tomatoes and I didn't pick these.  I had one tomato plant fall over.  It didn't have its own cage and I thought the cages on either side would be support enough but that wasn't what it wanted.  These 4 green tomatoes came off when I propped it back up and provided support.
The orange tomato wasn't supposed to be picked either, but when I felt it off it came into my hand.  I think it's a Juliette. Hard to know for sure because I planted the Juliette between two paste variety tomatoes and they are looking the same as the Juliette. I don't think it's fully ripe.  There are others that color that I didn't make the mistake of touching.

I bet the two larger tomatoes ripen without a hitch. Nice diversity!

I didn't wait to see if those two big ones would ripen. We had fried green tomatoes last night and they were good!

Fried green tomatoes, yum! Looks like you have lots of good salad makings also. Very nice.

I've had a couple of green tomatoes fall off and I brought them in to see if they ripen. Fried green tomatoes sound good too!

I was gonna mention having Fried Green Tomatoes --but I read that that is what you all did.... YUM....

Looks like you are getting some great veggies from your garden this year. I love to eat (not pickle) the little pickling cucumbers... SO GOOD.

Hugs,
Betsy

Lots of chutney to be made from those tomatoes. Your veggies are such a beautiful, fresh colour. So tempting.
