Harvest in August

Roma, cherry, and yellow pear tomatoes, a few figs, and a bowl’s worth of tomatillos. This is my first harvest of figs and tomatillos!

I need to test my garden soil, all but one raised bed is full of skimpy, stunted plants with small fruits. I would think it’s an issue with me, except the kids garden bed is lush and dark green with enormous plants. Same plants, water, fertilizer, and gardener!

Things are growing nicely- the tomatoes grew fast in Mom’s greenhouse- I brought home about 175 tomatoes, kale, and tomatillos to sell this weekend. It’s time, they’re getting too big for our pots! They’re all snuggled into my cooler greenhouse now, alongside my fresher seedlings for the warm months.

After this heat spell we’re in, I’m going to take my sunflowers, squash, borage, calendula, and marigolds up to the bigger greenhouse to grow for a few weeks. I needed to make some room for them first! There are still about 200 plants up at the other greenhouse- 150 spoken for that will go out in two weeks, and about 50 others that need to come down.

Half of those sold today, I know we won’t have trouble finding a home for the rest!
