The Coming Harvest

Some pictures from the potager and elsewhere.

Cherry Tomato bed with sunflowers.

Asparagus ferns - Martha Washington, two year old crowns.

Baby Yellow squash from seed collected last year.


Green Zebra

San Marzano - a roma variety




Unknown. Some tags were lost in the process.

Breadseed poppy (I think)

And finally, the birdfeeder hanging by a thin wire from the China Fir in the backyard. I'll show those squirrels who's the boss. (Tony Danza, actually)

Yesterday, I cleaned the gutters and mowed the yard with gas borrowed from Larry.

Have you ever grown Green Zebra and San Marzano tomatoes before?

I grew Green Zebra and San Marzano tomatoes this year. I didn't like the Zebras...too tart. In my garden the San Marzano had some problems. First, they had some fungal/bacterial problems on the leaves and stems. Next, when I cut some of them open they had some mold or something growing inside. I was very disappointed. Also, my Roma plants had much larger tomatoes that the San Marzano. I think I will stick with Roma from here on out.

Everything looks great in your garden!

Never grown either. I'm trying something new. The seeds from these were passed along so I hope they're good tomatoes. I know Rutgers are. And beefsteaks, of course.

your veggies are much further along than I thought they'd be. The tomatoes look great!
p.s. Squirrels are way too smart to be taken in by a thin wire ploy.
