Tomato Harvest

tomato harvest

They are so red! They almost look glowing. I've picked quite a few of the Juliet and we had one really early tomato but this is the first time I've been able to pick two large(ish) tomatoes at once.

Blackberry Harvest

blackberries!

Our blackberry bush is huge. Last year it was like a foot tall, now it is over 6 and very prolific. We've gotten about 1 cup of berries so far and lots more are coming ripe. We put a net over the bush to keep the birds at bay and it seems to be working well.
