The Tomato harvest is in and there’s tons of them! This little haul was just one picking last week. There are more ready now. The large black ones are the Black Krim that I’ve been growing in the greenhouse. They taste amazing. Strangely, one of the plants is producing large yellow Tomatoes instead of the usual dark red with black tops. They taste the same as the rest but look differently. I’m saving the seed to see if I can replicate it next year.
All of them have a wonderful sweet taste and I’m very happy with them except the Italian Roma. I know they are best for canning but they really do have a mealy texture and they are not very sweet. Maybe the second wave will be better.
The haul doesn’t stop with Tomatoes. My Artichokes are still producing amazing globes and my California Orange Wonder Peppers are starting to turn colour, and the Hot Chillies are ripening too.
It’s all happening in the garden here. We can’t keep up with what’s coming out of the garden – especially the Squashes!
