Monday Harvest

A truss of "Matthew"

The theme of this week's harvest might be called "The Salsa Garden". It was pretty short and simple. The heat lovers are ripening and ready to harvest. I started with my tomatoes. Once again, all of my varieties, with the exception of "Mexico", had lots of fruit to pick. I am beginning to wonder if "Mexico" will ever ripen. This week's harvest was:
  • "Galina" - (43) 8.4 oz
  • "Mountain Magic" - (8) 4.4 oz
  • "Matthew" - (41) 12.7 oz
  • "Esterina" -(47) 7.3 oz
  • "Matina" - (10) 4.4 oz
I also picked the last two peppers on my "Gypsy" plant. It only produced 3 peppers this year but all the were big and beautiful. I don't know if I didn't give it enough water or if it didn't like our super hots days. It bloomed like crazy but never set any peppers after the first three. I think I will give it one more try next year since the fruit it did produce was so nice.

It is salsa time in the garden. My husband really wishes that I could still grow it. He misses salsa season.

Love those peppers! Too bad you didn't get more of them. Peppers can be fussy.

Those peppers look so nice. I haven't canned any salsa yet, but it's on the to do list. I canned some for the first time last year and we haven't bought salsa since - it's wonderful!

I used to can salsa all the time. I really miss it!
