Mid-week harvest

This is a joint harvest - part of it came from the community garden - all large red and orange tomatoes are from there, eggplants and the front row of the butternut squash are from that garden. Black, green and bi-color tomatoes are from my new garden. All tomatoes including cherry types going back tomorrow to be delivered to the food pantry, but squash and eggplants remain here as they can't divide them evenly between people who need food - there's simply not enough for everyone so I get to keep them.  On the far left side you can see previous harvest of butternuts that were already measured - 7 of them and some acorns next to them. They were not counted in today's harvest. Not visible in the main picture are leaks that are just outside the shot in the sink. And we have our first watermelon! I haven't cut it yet but do hope it is fully ripe. There were 2 others but they got split from the last rain storm.

    1. I have few cantaloupes but only a base-ball size watermelons left. I am very happy with butternuts because they store well for winter and if i see them going soft I can always freeze them. I love them in winter soup or as a side dish.
