Sorry about the blue tint in the photos, don’t know what I did to my camera. Will take it to a camera store to get it checked.
Dug in all my white sweet potatoes, total weight 14 pounds.
Some critters came to visit and munched on the biggest ones, this partially eaten section weighs 1¼ pounds. Never could figure out how they know which are the biggest ones.
Sweet potato vine tips were still looking tender. Harvested 3 pounds. Washed and cooked all, shared with friends and froze some to see how well they freeze.
Please note not all sweet potato vines are edible. Like mushrooms, you need to know which is edible and which is not.
Harvest the larger of the “all volunteer” mustard greens, weight, 1 pound. Will stir-fry with ginger, garlic and shallots.
This bitter melon harvest was a very pleasant surprise. Still have some small fruits on the vine. Will leave the vines alone and hope for another harvest. No killer frost yet and none predicted for the coming week. Maybe we will be frost free up to Thanksgiving (yes, I’m dreaming). Got so excited I forgot to weigh.
1 Asian pear, weight, 8 ounces
1 green and 1 yellow tomatoes, total weight, 1¼ pounds
2 very small fuzzy melon, total weight, 10 ounces, going to make soup
This is the green tomato I harvested 1+ weeks ago. The texture was a bit grainy, still better than tomato from the supermarkets.
