This morning I went out to the garden with a bowl to harvest my daily onslaught of cherry tomatoes. Today I had much more ripe than just those, however.
A half dozen pickling cucumbers, including the behemoth that must have been hiding for several days! Cayenne peppers- which I am hoping to make into powdered pepper. A tobasco pepper- which I am hoping to make some hot sauce with.
And I got some more tomatoes. These were a determinate variety (sorry can’t remember the name or find where I had it written down at the moment) that I planted hoping to get a bunch of tomatoes at the same time to make salsa with. However, half of them have started to rot on the vine before ripening. It isn’t blossom end rot, but I found some slugs on some of the tomatoes, so it could have just been that the tomatoes were damaged by bugs and started to rot. I picked all of them, including a couple green ones, which I think I will fry up for breakfast this morning!
