Time Has Come for Tomatoes to Change Colors

Cherry tomatoes came first and now both of my Roma and steakhouse tomatoes are now on their way to a ripening pinkish red color. There are only a few of them changing colors, but soon the rest will follow. With plenty of sunshine they will turn much faster and will be harvested earlier. (more…)

Flowers, Vegetables, and Fruits Coming Soon

It looks like I will be harvesting some fruits and vegetables soon in addition to the ones that I have already been picking.  So far blueberries, lettuce, and peas have been harvested and most of my Spring crop is all but finished.  I have picked a third harvest of blueberries and still more bushes need to be picked.

The Last Summer Harvests of 2016

It is that time of the year where the harvests are getting smaller and smaller and cleanup of most of the garden will commence.  I still have a few melons, tomatoes, and eggplants still growing, but for the most part they will not be that big of a harvest.

The good news is that now we are going into the fall where my broccoli, cabbage, and kale can thrive in the cool weather.  I will be soon starting to pick harvests from them.  I will give them another month before I actually start thinking about harvesting them. (more…)

The Last Large Harvest of Pole Beans

It looks like most of my garden plants are winding down and no longer producing any more flowers or fruits.  My tomatoes are probably the last plants that are still growing fruit and I think I have just a few more harvests from them.

My bean plants are pretty much done for the season and today I just picked the last large harvest of pole beans.  It wasn’t as big as past years, but it is definitely a good amount to store over the winter. (more…)

Cantaloupe, Tomatoes, and Zucchini Picked

I was looking forward to picking the first melon of the year and I thought that it was going to be one of my cantaloupes.  I was hoping that my honeydew would be ready by this week, but instead one of my cantaloupes had disconnected from the plant meaning that it is ready for harvesting.

I also picked some more steakhouse, Roma, and cherry tomatoes.  I did not pick as many cherry tomatoes as my previous harvests, but at least I got a few Romas to make up for it. (more…)
