A truss of "Matina"
With our much needed rain storms arriving Friday night and again Sunday afternoon, I wasn't too sure what damage I might find in the Kitchen Garden. My whirligig art piece had toppled over and was laying in the pumpkin patch, directly one on of my two pumpkins. Fortunately, when I picked it up, the pumpkin - and whirligig - were both fine. Really the only damage, if you can call it that, was some cracking on some of the tomatoes. A very small price to pay for that wonderful rainfall. In the end, I ended up having my biggest tomato harvest of the year this week, just over 4 pounds.
- "Galina" - (63) 11.9 oz.
- "Mountain Magic" - (23) 12.5 oz
- "Matthew" - (58) 1 lbs. 4.4 oz
- "Esterina" - (132) 1 lbs. 4.5 oz
- "Matina" - (18) 7.4 oz.
I also harvested all of the ripe peppers on my mystery pepper plant. I hadn't really looked closely at this plant for a while and was surprised to find a few red peppers. Apparently the peppers on this plant ripen from green, to deep purple, to red. Since I am not a huge fan of hot peppers, these will be bagged up and delivered to a friend at work. Today's total pepper harvest was 13 peppers, weighting in at 3.6 oz.
