Summer is ending


Our tomatoes don’t have much more to offer, neither fruit nor flower. Today I heavily pruned while I picked from 5 different plants (2 of which had only 1 tomato). The fall plants are in the nursery and only our celery and long beans are thriving right now. I hope I have time to plant Cipollini onions, shallots, peas and garlic this weekend. I’d also like to get more carrots, lettuce, spinach and radishes planted, as I last planted some 2 weeks ago and I’m trying to get better about my intervals.

And now back to making pesto. Our basil should yield one more crop after this one! (And the new crop doesn’t look great.)
