Tomato Braggin'

I have not had the best of luck this year in my garden.  While I have learned to keep weeds to a minimum, the invisible insects seemed to really enjoy the beets, peas, beans and squash I had planted. I just pulled out the last dead remnants of them this week.  They went along nicely for so long with lovely flowers and everything, and then WHAM! They were dead.  We got a really nice crop of cucumbers, but they too have since succumbed to some unknown pest.  The only things that have survived are my son’s banana peppers, the green peppers, which are almost ready for picking, and the tomatoes.  And boy, the tomatoes have done beautifully.  We are getting a steady ripening and the fruit is beautiful.  I wanted to share what I picked the other day because I was delighted to find 3 totally unblemished Beefsteak tomatoes(all be it not to beef-steaky, but nice just the same) and a yummy batch of Jellybean tomatoes.  Maybe we will have better luck with the other crops next year, if I can figure out what killed them.

    My tomatoes and peppers hung in there while we were gone. Before we left we discovered a pumpkin, a bit on the green side! It's nice and orange now!
