Harvesting

04 Sep 2011
Sunny 21°C / 70°F

The tomatoes have been painfully slow to ripen this year due to the ridiculous amount of cool weather we’ve had. Even though it warmed up through August, nights are still dipping down to under the optimum ripening temperature for tomatoes.

I have a ton, but they’re all green and just starting to trickle in.

I have a feeling I’ll be doing a lot of ripening indoors this year.

Don’t even get me started on the peppers. Those I’m just going to bring in so I have a hope in hell of harvesting something. Thankfully I always grow them in pots, so no transplanting required. If all goes well I’ll just overwinter the suckers and let them continue growing next year.

Oh! I never thought of bringing the peppers in – some of mine are in pots as well. Great idea – thanks!
