Not much to show here this week, but here we go.....
I pulled a few test carrots, just to see how well they were sizing up. I'm happy with them. I picked a lot of Black Cherry tomatoes, but more than half of them got tossed as they are splitting badly. A few grape tomatoes had fallen to the ground when I removed the plant earlier, and they ripened right there where they dropped. The pepper was from one plant that survived the early freeze. It was in a pot behind the shed, so it must stay warmer back there, protected by the shed and the fence.
Nearly a week of rain caused a lot of strawberries to rot on the plants, but I still got just over a pound in this picking. The fresh strawberry shortcakes sure do taste especially good in November. As do the vine ripened tomatoes. Color me surprised to be seeing so much red this late in the year!
Carrots - 8.8 ounces
Peppers (sweet) - 1.7 ounces
