I am usually so sick of harvesting by this time of year that I just start pulling plants. Instead, we have made it through the heatwave (probably not the drought, thanks for the encouragement local weathermen) and I am just now starting to get production from the garden. My peppers are still going crazy, but the tomatoes are just driving me crazy. I am going to go out and trim them up today and see what they do before the feast. After that, they will probably be pulled. i did make some salsa the other day. I had to use canned tomatoes from the store. Tastes fine and is a much richer color, but it is still just not the same.
Jalapenos, garlic and onions
Same thing after grilling
Sam's contribution to my salsa
Easy way to chop
Just need jars now
Something else I waited all summer for, my morning glories to bloom. I was a little surprised when they finally did I was expecting a purple and white striped flower instead they are solid white. That is at least the third thing I planted this year that is not what the labeling said it was. Just a little annoying. Well, they are still pretty.
I should have rotated this shot, but too late! Okay, really just too lazy.
