Monday Harvest 8/13/12

So I returned last week after 2 weeks away, and things have been a little warm.  We have had 5 days in a row with 105+ temperatures, however the weather man says that it should cool off to around 102.  The garden has been a little crispy, but the heat lovers, tomatoes, cucs, peppers, figs, zucs, pumpkins, seem to be hanging on.  

 One of the hauls after being away.  Not bad!

 All of the ladies are finally laying again, however if this heat continues they might shut down.  Lemon cucs, interesting texture.
TPW makes the best fig jam, looking forward to a few jars this year.  I pruned the older fig tree, brown turkey, pretty hard this year so we did not get the early crop.  Need to be sure that I get the figs before the birds do!


  1. what a great haul; looks like you could have a double yolker there too. Love those figs!

  2. I'd say not bad at all given the high temps. And you have avocados!!!
