The Cherokee Purples that I picked green earlier before the first fall frost warning a couple of weeks ago are ripening up nicely. I don't add the green tomatoes to the tally until they ripen. So throughout November I'll be adding in more Cherokee Purples.
Sadly it is the last of the cherry tomatoes. GabrielleAnn (which you can barely see tucked into the corner in the above basket) was a huge producer at 26.84 lbs this year. Wow. This harvest was pretty small though. It is also the last of the peppers and the zucchini. All I can say is that any harvest of zucchini, tomatoes, and peppers is amazing in November around here. This year we have been really blessed by hot weather - and cursed with a lack of rain all summer long.
I decided I'd better pick the Asian greens and just try to use them up. Soon the ground will freeze and I won't get any harvests. I picked not quite a quarter of all the greens in the garden. You see here all the Asian greens I've got growing except the green stemmed bok choy. This was the first of the Fun Jen that I picked. It was the longest maturing of the greens I put in. I wasn't sure if it would mature or not, but it finally did. My favorite way to eat this is in salads. I mix it with a bit of lettuce and add some fruit and nuts. I use an Asian style salad dressing of some kind. This time it was a Japanese style dressing. Tasty.
