Pre-Equinox Harvest

Today is the first rain of the season–earlier than usual and heavier. Under ominous clouds this morning, Kelly and I brought in “the harvest”: ‘New Girl’ tomatoes, ‘San Marzano’ paste tomatoes, ‘Sun Sugar’ cherry tomatoes, ‘Big Red Beauty’ bell peppers, ‘Golden Bell’ peppers, ‘Japanese Long’ eggplants, ”Traviata’ eggplants, and mystery volunteer tomatillos. One picture might have sufficed, but I am so delighted by all the colors that I’ll share several. Happy almost-Fall!

We harvested the apples several weeks ago and have been juicing them and eating them raw, but today we began drying the rest.
