The temperature has dropped to the mid 70s and the pole beans are loving it. They have been growing like crazy! Thank goodness because these pole bean plants were in the ground since early April and they were slow to produce with the relentless summer heat. This is what we harvested this past week. We also pulled the last of the potatoes and I rescued the one and only eggplant left. It wasn't ready to be picked but I didn't want the squirrel to get at it.
I also harvested the only 2 yellow pear tomatos that grew from the 6 plants we put in the ground. The sun followed by lack of rain fried these poor tomato plants and 5 of the plants died before even having a chance to set fruit. (sigh). The yellow pear tomatoes were delicious. I guess quality over quantity. Yeah... okay. I took this photo with the little eggplant next to the tomatoes so you could see how tiny the eggplant was. Better than the squirrel eating it right? I'll take it!!
