I saw this flower sticking out above the canopy of my tomato jungle yesterday.
Thinking it was a weed, I started pulling on it, and kept pulling, and pulled out a 5 foot tall radish!
That thing was huge. I had forgotten about the couple of radish seeds that I planted next to my tomatoes in May. I’d read a book about companion planting that mentioned that radishes repel a certain bug that eats tomatoes (don’t remember which bug now). Anyway, who knew radishes could get that big?!
We’re also getting quite a haul now from the aforementioned tomato jungle:
Sensing impending doom, the plants are putting everything they’ve got into fruiting. I’m trying to pick the tomatoes before they are fully ripe because if I let them get too ripe the squirrels get them. That misfit purple one in the upper left corner is from last week’s CSA, but it’s going to go into the same batch of salsa as these. Hopefully will get to that tomorrow night.
