After the turmoil of last week it seems that the pests are giving us a reprieve. The garden continues to produce well. Sun Gold, Yellow Pear, and Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes are all coming in prolifically. We're also starting to get a steady supply of Moskovich tomatoes; our first batch came in this week with probably 20 or more ripening on the vine.
We also harvested a few squash, including a yellow Crookneck, a small Eight Ball, and two Costata Romanesco zucchini. And of course our chard continues to produce a steady supply of greens for us.
You can see above that one of the Romanesco zucchini is yellowing at the end, a symptom of blossom end rot. Blossom end rot is a calcium deficiency usually caused by over- and underwatering. I should be able to correct this problem by giving the plants a bit more to drink.
This week's harvest weighed in at 4.2 pounds, bringing our running total to 31.6 pounds.
