Harvest Monday

Last of the tomatoes and peppers were harvested this week.  Temps are too cool and sun is lower so they won't ripen on the vine.

Mesculun, bok choy and spinach are up.

Cucumbers are still flowering and trying to develop.  I did pick two mid week.

See that cucumber tendril?  You'll have to watch this video from Science Friday about how it spirals.  It's fascinating!

Saturday I had a package in the mail.  My garlic order from Fedco.  They had to substitute Russian Red for German Red, but that's okay.  Now I need to think about which bed to plant it in for the winter.

Check out other harvests at Daphne's Dandelions.
