Colorful harvest, aka a rainbow in my basket

 I had such a nice time in the garden yesterday.  I set out to plant just a few things and you know how it is ... you end up pulling a couple weeds, watering a few things, tightening a few strings on the tomatoes...  Before you know it, you've been outside for a few hours. 

It was getting hot, so I just grabbed the tomatoes I'd had my eye on ~ two more Oxhearts and a Mortgage Lifter that had blushed pink the other day.  Sure enough they were gorgeous and ripe.

Later in the day I went back out to move the sprinkler and noticed a little yellow patty pan squash.  Then I looked over at the peppers and noticed the Chocolate Beauty I'd been watching was ripe.  Then I noticed the Anaheims next to it...
Before I noticed it, I'd grabbed my basket and filled it with all sorts of things.  I hadn't realized that there was that much out there!  And the colors!  Just look at the colors!  Purple, chocolate, yellow, red, organge, two kinds of green and more kinds of red.  A rainbow in the basket! 

In case you were wondering what they all are, clockwise from the yellow patty pan squash are a pile of cherry tomatoes (orange are Sungolds, oblong red are Juliets, and tiny reds are Matt's Wild Cherrys), then Royal Burgundy bush beans, then Cherokee Purple tomatoes, the red tomatoes are Solar Fires, then another Cherokee Purple, a Chocolate Beauty bell pepper and some Anaheim peppers.  The green beans are more Black Valentines, which so far are winning the Year of the Bean race.  They're YUM-MEE!
