Ah, the harvest is in full swing and we are eating well from the garden these days!
This one Ugli tomato cut up measured 3 cups. I am definitely saving some seeds from this plant. These tomatoes are delicious!
Hunky Hubby added a few more tomatoes, some peppers, some jalapenos, onions, cilantro, parsley, lime juice and salt and pepper for some wonderful homemade salsa. He loves cutting up vegetables - and we all love the results!
This was wrapped in a whole grain soft tortilla with guacamole, leftover london broil and cheese for a yummy dinner. (On paper plates! No dishes - it's a holiday weekend!)
I put in carrots (Danvers Half Longs and Red Cored Chantenay) with Radishes (gourmet blend) planted in between. The radishes will be picked before the carrots need the room, hopefully.
I also planted lettuce - little gem, Merlot, and black seeded simpson.
These are all new seeds. I am a bit disappointed with the old seeds I planted earlier. Only a few of them have sprouted. I am throwing out my old seeds and starting next year with all new seeds.
My cat Smokey patrolled the fence top while I planted.
Patrolling lower down was this cute little toad. The wood he's sitting on is only 1-1/2 inches thick! Toads eat bad bugs, so I hope he stays and invites all his friends!
I haven't gotten any photos of them, but we are being visited daily by Goldfinches. They are feasting on the sunflower seeds and the zinnia seeds and eating something (bugs I hope) in the Ugli tomato plants (or maybe they just think they are trees - the plants are huge!!). The break from the hot weather and the animal visitors have made the garden a fun place to be in this weekend!
