Tomato vines mostly look very bad, but lots of fruit is ready and much more hanging. Young replacement plants still look fine, so maybe the harvest will continue to frost. This year is my first in a long time of freezing, so have been preparing 24-36 ounces each day for a while now. I figure there is no reason to buy low quality, contaminated canned tomatoes as long as we can freeze our own non pesticide, carefully selected tomatoes. Probably a much healthier option, and they most likely compare to very expensive organic canned tomatoes, so carry a fairly high value. Perhaps will eventually start canning my own, up to maybe 24-36 quarts per year. That will require a bit of a learning curve however.
The garden is a bit slower right now. Squash plants are getting old, and young ones are not yet into production. Same story with cucumber plants, though the replacements have lots of young fruit. Egg plant and peppers are steady. Arugula and Swiss Chard are still producing adequately. Onions are through, all the garlic is harvested. Blue berries have been a massive crop this year. Have been eating our fill since about April and the bushes are still loaded. Figs should start to ripen in a week or two. Okra just started trickling off this week.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.
