The sweet corn is finally ripe! (This week has been Oregon's hottest so far this year)
We're at the stage where we'll have 5 ears every night for the next couple of weeks.
The tomatoes are finally ripening, too! First ripe tomatoes just have that fantastic taste we've been waiting for all summer.
2 or 3 per day for the next couple of weeks (think we have 5 varieties ripening at different times) and pick the green ones when the frost comes to have for the next couple of months. They went into BLTs tonight. Sure wish we had a bacon tree...
Beets continue to be a treat every few days. Didn't plant enough this year, but they should stretch to the end of September.
Pears are getting close to ripe, apples are a bit further off. Blueberries have done well since mid-August -- last batch went into waffles. Haven't been too motivated to pick the accursed Himalayan blackberries except for some treats after checking over the garden.
Then, before you know it, it'll be time to plant the garlic again. Plans for expanding the garden include planting some red flame seedless grape vines and a few sweet cherry trees this winter and more strawberry plants.
I was absolutely shocked that cherries were $2-$3 per pound this year. Doesn't take long for a $25 tree to pay for itself at that price.
