I'm tired; it's been a busy day and I spent part of it here. Also, rode over to the MSG on my bike to harvest and post flyers for our upcoming potluck barbecue. I have just imported dozens of photos from the past week's events and and will pick out the ones that document the yield of the past week.There is not much new to report. Over at the MSG, gardeners have heeded our call to check in on their plots and weed the adjacent paths, so things look much neater. I had finally amassed enough tomatoes to whip up my first batch of salsa. And the green beans keep coming, and I keep steaming them, oven-roasting them, and donating them to the food pantry. As you can see above, I harvested my first Cosmonaut Volkov tomato last Wednesday and I'm still picking a few Cherokee purples.
On Friday, I took some plot photos, including the one at top featuring mostly perennials, and picked more tomatoes, though with my labeled sticks hard to find, I'm not sure if they are Cosmonaut Volkov or Rose de Berne; though the color is similar I think the former is rounder and plumper. In this photo of the vegetable side, you can see that my fall peas are starting to climb, though today I noticed them already flowering so I'm a little concerned.In another plot across the path, a few bees were keeping busy.I couldn't make it over to the plot Saturday, but harvested a tomato growing in one of the containers at home, and today, I returned to the MSG to find a few broccoli sideshoots in addition to the usual.I have my harvest documented now, but I'm unclear about the cost of the tomatoes, so I'm going to poop out and prepare the estimated value for a future post. But first, something odd (at least to me)--a three-headed daisy.
