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.
