Garden Update: July 25

Gavin and I went out to the plot on Saturday night, so some of the pictures are from then.  Please excuse the cell-phone quality of the pictures as it was a surprise trip.  This is a Gavin-view of the tomato plants.  You can’t really tell that they start and end…

We picked something extremely exciting – a ripe, red tomato!

It’s not the most beautiful thing in the world, but it was certainly exciting and surprising.  It was also delicious; I made guacamole with it on Sunday.

When I went back today, there weren’t really any surprises.  Lots of baby green tomatoes, which I find adorable.

The marigolds are still enormous.  Friends, seriously.  This is one plant from Home Depot that was extremely sad looking when I planted it.  I assumed it would die.  Now they are all this big.

 

One of the marigolds had a friend on it.

The bell peppers are trucking along and there are starting to be a lot of big peppers!

The cucumbers are flowering, which is a good sign.  I am drowning in cucumbers from my CSA so it is yet to be determined how good this actually is.  The only saving grace is how delicious the fridge pickles I already have are.

 

You saw that we picked one tomato, and here’s me with the rest of the harvest on Saturday.  One jalapeno and a handful of serranos – I think we counted 21.

Today I picked even more serrano peppers and didn’t even bother to count them.  All I know is that I need to figure out how to preserve these quickly.

I’ll leave you with some good news for the future.
