Fruit is good, but I do hope the balance shifts a little more toward the vegetable end of the spectrum next week! (For this purpose, we can count tomatoes as vegetables.)
- 3 small and 3 medium Bartlet pears
- 5 Gala apples
- 3 nectarines (not yet ripe)
- 1 large tomato
- 2 medium green peppers (here's hoping they'll ripen)
- 1 head of romaine lettuce
Weight: about five pounds.
I also harvested my second red pepper tonight. (It was delicious in a stir-fry.) There are eight more full-grown ones on the plant in various stages in the journey from green to red. I lost one in a storm. For a long time it's looked like that was going to be it -- 11 peppers -- but in the last few days some new ones have started. I count seven, and there might be an eighth in a hard-to-see place. They're in the rapid-growth phase, so it should become clear soon. Nice -- a second round!
