Every year I cross my fingers that my larger slicing/eating tomatoes will yield one big specimen and today was the day for this cherokee purple. Not bad at 19 ounces! There's another on the vine although it could be a close call. We had one day of heavy rain earlier in the week which caused cracked tops, but all in all I'm just glad that there was no problem of blossom end rot this year.
Once again, the harvest for this past week looks pretty much like those from earlier on, and our summer has finally come to an end with definitely cooler temps. I figure I'll take a break from Harvest Mondays until the winter garden harvest is ready, but during these coming months, I hope to visit and report on an italian truffle fair and perhaps a chestnut festival in France. Hop on over to Daphne's Harvest Monday to see what others are reaping from their gardens.
Todays high: 21°C / 70°F
