A lot has been happening in my garden but I haven't really had time to photograph it.
Having the trellis to themselves, the beans are producing about 3/4 - 1 lb. every week and show no sign of stopping soon. The peppers are still mostly sad, giving me a few tasty but not very healthy looking Padrons a week. The orange bell is the exception, suddenly taking off vegetatively and starting on a good looking fruit.
The cucumbers are doing great, producing something like 3 lb. of fruit a week. The English Telegraphs have been a big disappointment this year, taking up lots of space with wonderful vegetation and crappy, shriveled fruit. I pulled them today so that the more successful Persians, pickling, and lemon cukes can take over the space.
Tomatoes. So far my luck has held up with the jerry rigged stake support I described in my previous post. I think it'll hold for the season. Red Robin and Matt's Wild Cherry have been providing for plenty of snacking, with the occasional yellow pear ripening as well. The San Marzanos have an enormous number of fruits starting to blush. And the Sexy Beast (pink oxheart var.) has just started to ripen its beautiful fruit. I've got some pictures of those, which follow. I suspect I picked the two shown at bottom a bit too early. They look to be good sauce tomatoes, with little seeds and liquid.
On Sunday, I leave for five days, which has me worried!
