Harvest Monday - Nov 28, 2011

Last week was great, I harvested about 27 tomatoes. Lost a couple to pests. So far the count is 501 (excluding the ones we lost). The weather is awesome for the past couple of days, the plants are doing a happy dance :)

What is this?

I have no idea what kind of gourd or pumpkin is this. Any ideas?

453 tomatoes and still counting!

The temperatures are crazy here in So Cal. It's been windy, cold and raining. The tomato plants are still growing with new flowers. But I think as the cold weather sets in, the plants will slowly stop producing.

Last 2 weeks' harvest:

I removed all the leaves from the basil plant, cleaned and dried them. Added the leaves to the food processor along with some olive oil, made something similar to pesto and froze them. This will come in handy when I make pizza/pasta sauce.

The tomatoes are in abundance, so I have been freezing and also giving them to my neighbors. I haven't bought tomatoes in the past 5 months.
