Our garden continues to do well, although it's a little messy what with the watermelon vines everywhere and in dire need of some weeding. Our watermelon is sweet and huge!
You may remember from earlier this summer how much I love beets. After pickling all my other beets, I decided to replant. I grabbed a random packet of beets - I can't remember what they were called now - maybe Italian beets? Anyhow, they are ready for harvest and to my surprise, look how amazing they are:
Isn't that cool? It makes me think of candy canes. If they came in beet format. Which might not be such a good thing. Wanna know how they taste?
They taste like beets.
In my harvest basket this week - tomatoes, tomatillos, the last of the yellow squash, and striped beets. The watermelon was too big to fit in my basket. Almost ready are green peppers - they've been slow to come around, as well as serrano peppers (they may be ready now - anyone know how big they get?)
