What a busy week in the garden!
Sadly, I have to report that all of my bean plants have died. In truth, it is probably about the normal time for their demise, but with miniscule harvest they produced this year it was especially disappointing. I ripped them out on Friday afternoon and will use the space next month to start a fall garden.
This week's harvest included the first batch of blossom end rot-free tomatoes! These are Roma and Bloody Butcher. I guess the calcium spray worked!
My cherry tomatoes are going crazy. That's no problem for my husband - he pops these in his mouth like candy. This was just one day's picking --
I also harvested my first two peppers of the season. The plants are quite stunted due to the weather, and they have also suffered from blossom end rot. However, these two peppers look good.
I picked these onions to make soup. It will be a few weeks until the full harvest is ready, but I couldn't resist a taste of what's to come. They were delicious!
Last but not least, I finally harvested some heads of dill for winter use. This year I let them dry on the plant and didn't pick them until they were ready storage. This might not work in a particularly rainy season, but since we were in a drought it seemed to work just fine.
