evening in the garden
Just before dinner we stepped out to the front yard to pick something to eat. Among many other things we put into our harvest basket, we found three paricularly large vegetable-fruits: one Celebrity tomato, unknown green zucchini (we thought we were planting yellow zucchini), and a lovely Armenian cucumber. The tomato was especially welcome, because, although our vines are heavily laden with tomatoes, they are all (except for a handful over the past weeks) eternally green:
Will they ever ripen? At least we still have as many beautiful cherry tomatoes as 3 people can eat, and more:
And I'm still loving all the butternuts ripening everywhere:
Sam's vegetable of choice for dinner tonight? Raw green beans that he picked himself.
