Aug 28th harvest: The basket is full of Cherokee Purple tomatoes, this plant has by far been the best producer this year. Next season I am growing at least three Cherokee Purple plants. The tomatoes on the raised bed from left to right are two Purple Calabash (from Skippy's Vegetable Garden), one Hillbilly Potato Loaf (this tom is minuscule compared to the monsters currently on the plant) and three Velvet Red (from The Conservative Gardener). In front is a zucchini that was grated and froze for baking, a few cherry tomatoes and a couple cucumbers. These two will probably be the last cucumbers of the season as the leaves have been devastated with mildew.
Aug 30th harvest: In the basket are the last of the early red potatoes that I grew in compost bags. They have done pretty well but the yield was low. Also in the basket is a mix of beans, Kentucky Blue, Purple Podded & Dragon Tongue beans. Beans really have been a bust this year, the Dragon Tongues produced well for a couple weeks but the poles have barely produced at all. Last but not least the tomatoes! The pinkish one is Giant Belgian (sweet, non-acidic taste), the yellow is Porkchop (extremely yellow with a nice acidic tomato taste) and two Cherokee Purples in the back (the best tomato in my opinion). There also is a couple black cherry tomatoes tucked in there.
