What I'm Harvesting

I am amazed that the tomato plants keep producing.  There doesn't seem to be an end in sight.

I picked this basketful tonight.

Here's what I already have on the kitchen counter that I need to use or freeze.

I made an oriental soup for dinner with these greens: tatsoi, bok choy and I guess the greens from the mesclun mix that are growing are mustard greens.  They had a strong taste.

Fourth and final butternut squash.

As a postscript, my 94 year old mother is very ill and I've had lots of trips there to be with her.  I'll be going again next week.  Yesterday my daughters went with me to visit for what may be their last time with her.  Bittersweet.
