Today’s harvest-August 5


Everything is starting to explode in the garden. Harvest time is here for many fruits and vegetables. Here is today’s harvest. From upper left clockwise: Friulana summer squash, AtomicRed carrots, Boothsby Blonde cucumbers, Emerite french filet green bean, Jimmy Nardello peppers, one Shishito pepper, and a variety of tomatoes.

Lots of fruit is ready to harvest. From top to bottom: Triple Crown thornless blackberries are just starting to come on, the very first Polana raspberries (we only got a few but the main harvest will be in the fall and the bushes are loaded) and on the bottom are the first few Himrod seedless table eating grapes-they have a wonderful flavor.

    Interesting. I’m getting lots of shishitos, but not much in the way of cucumbers and beans. But tomatoes are dolng great: green zebra, pink berkeley tie-die, black cherries, Paul Robeson, and of course sungolds, and some Brad’s atomic grapes are near ripe.. I had to re-cover tomatoes, because the deer are getting the fruit that is just outside the wire cages. Yesterday, it was a group of 5 bucks!


    • wow! Did you hear that Bob Z had a bear that destroyed one of his beehives. We brought the other surviving one over here till the bear hibernates. You guys live in a wild area!

      I only have one shishito plant and we get some off of it every few days.

    I’m having trouble with my black cherry tomatoes. They have brown spots on many of the green ones. Do you know what is causing it?

    Those carrots look great! I rarely grow carrots. I really dislike them; and they do not normally do well here. I grew a few this year because someone at work wanted them. They did better than expected, but still not great.
    The berries are excellent! The only blackberries I get here are the wild (naturalized) Himalayan blackberry. They are good, but hellish to harvest.
