The garden has been producing buckets, especially buckets of zucchini. I’ve been eating it 3 times a day and making Doug eat it for dinner every night. Our tomatoes had a pretty good first crop, but I’ve had to toss dozens of tomatoes that turned white and then rotted. Not sure what the problem is—but I am guessing the kind of seed we bought was not tested very well.
This afternoon I went out to pick a few poblano chilis and I noticed our new fig tree (which was only a stem about 1.5 feet tall in the spring) had a ripe fig on it. There are at least 20 on the small tree, so I am guessing that once it reaches adulthood it will be a heavy producer. We ate the ripe one tonight and it was pretty good. I’m looking forward to making fig jam and broiling blue cheese over figs.
Here is what the fig looked like when we first planted it (it is the one stem in the front of the picture). :
