The other day, Keff and I were harvesting from the 200 Foot Garden, and he put together this basket from what we picked, to give to the folks who own and manage the property that we use, as a way of saying thanks (and to show them that we really do produce veggies from little speck of land).
Now the tatume squash are all about done, but cucumbers are still producing, and the tomatoes are teasing us. There are hundreds of them, waiting to turn red. We just need a little bit more patience. (Though there are some ripe yellow perfection tomatoes in there, if you hunt a little.) The Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes are turning red, but getting picked so fast, I almost never even see them orange.
The watermelon vines are longer than we've ever seen, but no fruit yet. I don't know if we'll see any or not. Maybe next year.
The basil and chard and kale seems to be getting picked regularly, which is good. They like it.
Thank You Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County! - I want to take a moment to thank the staff of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. They were nice enough to invite Root Simple to do a coffee ...
