Tomatoes I'm patiently waiting on and sadly one of the ones I thought was ripening had rot on it and it's two neighbors also perished.  I have picked one or two yellow pears and they were good tasting. Peppers oddly haven't been strong, well save my habeneros posted above.  What I completely surprised at is how tenacious the broccoli plants have been even in the 90 degree heat!  I'm picking heads that literally measure 4 inches across.  

Side note, I had a surprise potato plant or two in the back.  I dug up enough for a side order the other day.  Oh well, we get in what we fit in.

My big discovery this year is the tomatoberry.  It's a small, sweet tomato (cherry tomato sized) that appears to be some sort of oxheart.  The two plants we have are huge, about 5 feet in height, and making tomatoes like there is no tomorrow.  I'd say that we have picked over 4 gallons of them, and there are still plenty of maturing fruit on the vines.  They are thick-walled like a beefsteak, with great flavor.  Haven't had any problems with splitting, and they keep well.  We've had some for over a week, not refrigerated, and they were still firm and sweet.

The tomato crop is coming along nicely.  Been picking about a half dozen full sized better boys/celebrity toms every other day.  I have to really get in there and weed a bit over the weekend.  Also been picking a handfull of yellow pears every couple days.  My one year old is a tomato addict which pleases me. 

My habeneros have a nice yield going though I'm going to wait a tiny bit longer from harvesting the first crop. I like them with some color on them.  The other peppers aren't doing so nicely.  Kind of a sad crop really.  Thats ok though, I only really use the hot peppers.

Also have eggplant which has been doing beautifully ever since I treated them for potato beetles. 

Currently dying out is squash and cukes though they still pump out a dozen or so a week.

I've been getting a lot of cayenne peppers - and the wife STILL hasn't made any chili to put them in! - also got a few jalapeños the other day.  Got my jalapeño popper recipe all printed out and only need a couple of ingredients.  And a few more peppers. 

My gigantic area of pole beans still hasn't got a single bean on it.  I haven't seen the leeks or carrots in a month - they're buried under there somewhere.  Getting into the middle of the tomato crop, been picking a half dozen every day.

Tomatoes are starting to come full fledge in my area and I've picked at least 50 over the past few days. Oddly I've had very few rotten ones too. I am however picking them early and brown bag ripening them.

This is a gardening thread, please take your malarky elsewhere. 

(ok, I thought of saying the melon comment too)

One chair worth.  I had another chair full as well...


Habeneros!  It was my Saturday project which resulted in...


Yes, the colon clearing stuff.  I had enough for that container plus one more which will last me a while.
