Today's Harvest

 Its end of July and almost half of summer is over. But tomatoes are bountiful and Siberian Tomato variety is producing enough for the whole family. We got few eggplants today which turned into a chutney.

Look at them...

Look at the wierd shaped cucumber, I believe poor pollination can be attributed to this shape...

Extra Tomato plants

This year I got more tomato plants than I can accomodate in a bed and some of them got root bound in their 8 ounce glasses and I put some of them in containers(not huge containers) just to get extra few tomatoes. They are adding numbers to the harvests.
