Monday's harvest

The bounty of the garden continues. The little cantaloupe melons are at last ripe, the Alcalde chile plants are producing chiles pintadas and chiles rojas in plenitude. The Iraqi Al-Kufa tomatoes are about gone but they were far and away the first to ripen. The Amish Paste and Long Keepers are now coming ripe.

We will begin picking the mutsu apples tomorrow if the weather is welcoming. Mrs. Fuzzy made and canned pesto today with the harvest of basil and is at this very moment slaving over a hot canning pot creating and canning more delectables for our winter and spring pleasures.
