There are still plenty more tomatoes on the vine, and the weather forecast for this week indicates they still have a chance of ripening up. I made salsa last week with some of the 'maters and the jalapeno that we also got from Shawn's plant. It was delicious. I think I'll make more soon... I'm hoping to make a batch of marinara also. I was surprised they did fine during the rainstorm we had this weekend, I was sure some of them would split and fall off.
Not pictured below is the kabocha squash that a squirrel decided was ready to harvest from the front yard. Note to squirrel: you were wrong. It was small, (a little bigger than a baseball,) and pretty good when my dad bbq'd it. It tasted a little green yet, but it was edible.
The peas are from the second batch I planted in late July. I may have planted them too early in the summer, and should have fertilized the soil because these plants are smaller than the first ones.
