Just a few photos to keep my blog updated on this years harvest times. Today I picked a few more yellow beans, lots of yellow pear tomatoes, a few more Isle Candy yellow cherry tomatoes, lots of zucchini (again). My second purple bell pepper and two green bells. A few more yellow crookneck and a patty pan squash. Lots more tomatoes but I had already put most of those on the table so they are not in this picture. The beautiful yellow tomato is the Persimmon tomato, an heirloom I grew for the first time this year. I love the flavor and it is producing very large fruit.
A bowl of San Marzano tomatoes that I roasted today. These I will freeze for pasta sauce in the winter. I put garlic and olive oil on them before roasting and will add fresh basil to each bag before I freeze it.
So far only four Poblano's have come in. They are good size though so I am happy. I hope to get more!
I roasted these with the tomatoes at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. The peels slip right off after letting them set under plastic wrap. I will freeze these for stuffed poblano's in the fall and winter.
