My Morning Pickings

Here is what I picked from my garden today.  Lots of tomatoes coming in now.  The sun is finally shining again.  We have been covered with a Marine layer for the last few weeks and I was beginning to wonder if I would ever see the sun again.  It has set the tomatoes back a bit, I think. 

Banana Legs Tomato, Pickling Cucumbers, Anaheim Chili Peppers, Unknown green/yellow Tomato ( might be a Burpee Pineapple Tomato), Estiva Tomato, and Purple Calabash Tomato. Sun grape red Tomato and golden Sweet Hybrid Yellow Grape Tomato along with a  Cherry Tomato.  Also a few Debarao Plum Tomatoes.  This plant is loaded and looks to be a winner.  I am so impressed with Estiva too, the plant holds at least 6 tomatoes on each stem.  It is a medium salad tomato.  I will repeat these two next year for sure.

Heading out to pick Patty Pan and Zucchini Squash, Basil and Tomatillo's next.

I have been so busy in the garden this month.  Hope you all are having a productive summer! 


  1. Wow! Look at your fabulous harvest! I'm jealous you have so many tomatoes ready. I think you sent us your marine layer :P The fruit is growing well, but not riping very fast in the fog! Oh well, we'll catch up soon I'm sure.

  2. Clare, thanks for stopping by. I am so excited this year about my tomatoes.

  3. Hello,
    I found your blog via Dusty Bay's blog hop party.
    Wow...your vegetables look fabulous! You've inspired me to get my vegetable garden growing. I want to plant pumpkin seeds to have them for October and November, but I've heard it's too late(?).
    I LOVE your hydranges from your last post...very beautiful!
    Have a wonderful day!
    ~ Jo :)
