Colorful harvest, aka a rainbow in my basket
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...
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!
