From Xan’s truck farm:
San Marzano windfalls, grape tomatoes, heirloom golds, and broom corn. Now all I have to do is figure out how to tie brooms.
Tanglewood has become a tangle of harvests. Everything is growing all over everything else (except the trellises, but trellises are so faux pas, right?) and nothing is growing where it’s supposed to be. Ah well. Harvesting is a bit like foraging, and I find it’s very relaxing and sometimes a little more rewarding than just walking down the aisles plucking fruit and veggies.
The tomatoes are beginning to trickle in, and I anticipate a break in the flood gate any day here. With more than 15 varieties, and more than 60 plants you’d think I’d be up to my ears in tomatoes by now, but I’m pretty sure that’s scheduled for next week!
Our produce boxes are going over well with friends and locals and it’s nice to have somewhere useful (and beneficial to the gardening pocketbook) to send the produce I don’t have time to deal with. We’re harvesting the last of the first wave of beans, and the second wave is just a few days off so we might not even have a break in them this year. Successive planting is obviously the way to go, though at times I think it might be nice to have a little break to relax and breathe. … Nahhh…
