We have a harvest for today's post! Although it is small, it is a harvest nonetheless and we're grateful for it.
Our tomatoberry plant has provided two pretty little tomatoes weighing a total of 3/4 of an ounce. More are on the way for next week.
Our Swiss chard is still producing some leaves from plants that aren't going to seed. I picked 12 ounces of it for this week's harvest.
For those folks that have been following my attempt to overwinter giant marconi pepper plants, the trial is over. The plants weren't doing anything even though the roots and interior of the stalks of the ones I inspected earlier in the year were a healthy green. I pulled another test plant this week, and it came out without any effort. The roots had rotted. So I'm tilling up the soil there and planting a fresh batch of marconi pepper plants in their place.
That concludes the harvest report for this week. I would like to share with you that I am very happy with the number and size of green tomatoes coming along, as well as the green bean and lima bean blossoms all over the vines! I hope everyone is having great progress with their crops this year!
