No pictures this time, sorry.
I cooked down another 6 ziplocks of tomatoes yesterday. 1 for ketchup and 5 for sauce. There’s space in that freezer again! But I’m sure I’ll be filling it back up with tomatoes in short order.
I’m considering pulling up the cantaloupe vines. I’ve picked 3 fruit. Lost the one to the coyote. And tossed 4 more because the underside was rotten when I picked them. I’m assuming its a heat issue as I don’t normally have problems with this variety.
I picked two more watermelons, and there’s another 4 or 5 growing.
I actually picked TWO, non-buggy, paprika peppers! I’m not sure they were 100% ripe, but I don’t care. They’re in the freezer pending dehydration, hoping I’ll get a few more……
I’ve got about half a ziplock of hot peppers in the freezer for either dehydration or jelly. A mix of Buena Mulatas and Hungarian Hot Wax. I’ve picked two Habaneros and both were buggy *sigh*. The Jalapenos look like the first of them will be along shortly.
Still waiting on the Melon Pear fruit to change color.
The tomato avalanche is still in force. I’m considering pulling up the Blue Berries. They’re producing well, and thats kinda the problem. They are, infact, hugely prolific. And the fruit is so tiny, and the vines so thick, that picking them all has turned into a huge issue. I KNOW I’m missing tons of them. And its not like I NEED those tomatoes…….
