Not as many big tomatoes ripened this week, but it looks like several of the Roma tomatoes will ripen in the next few days. I did get a few nice Pineapple tomatoes and a couple of large Rutgers, though.
On Saturday, I pulled all of the beets and onions. The onions are drying on the patio. I made a batch of pickled beets and the rest are sitting in the pantry.
There's always more Swiss Chard and this week was no exception. I froze 6 bags for use this winter.
The garden is looking pretty barren with the bean patch empty, and now the beets and onions gone. I had planned to start a fall garden in the next few weeks, but with the high heat and drought, I'm not so sure that's a good idea. Any ideas for successful seed starting under these conditions, or would I be better off ditching the plans for this year's fall garden?
That's all of the harvest for this week. To check out more great harvests, visit Daphne's Dandelions.
