My first harvest last week was more lettuce (2 oz.) and one long slim red cayenne pepper (1/8 oz) which went into tacos. I was checking on the color of a plum tomato and when I touched it, it came off in my hand. So it will have to ripen on the windowsill.Saturday I picked the first three cherry tomatoes! They came in at 2.25 oz.
On Sunday I picked 4 oz of lacinato kale and 1 oz of my winterbor kale which is planted for fall. I harvested 10.5 oz of pickling cucumbers.
Look at these funny shapes! For some reason all my cucumbers bulge at one end or the other. I wonder if it was all the rain followed by a dry spell caused this.
I had leftover brine from the last batch of bread & butter pickles that I kept in the refrigerator. So I sliced these up and boiled them with the brine. I'll let them cool and then keep them in the refrigerator for quick eating.
