yellow harvest


hahms gelbe tomatoes and golden sweet peas. these peas are amazing! of the 4-5 varieties i've grown in the last few years these come the closest to the impossibly sweet sugar snaps i remember from my childhood.








the apples and quince are plumping up and blushing with a little bit of pink. a lot of the apples aborted but i think that's ok? it seemed like there were too many for the tree to support. there are still a lot left.

Nice harvest! I have a lot of blossoms on my tomato plants and only a couple of fruit. Still waiting for more tomatoes.

ooh, the peas are a new one for me, I must find some seeds. I think of you every time I walk outside in the morning and pick a lemon for my breakfast drink. California is weirder than I ever imagined.

Golden sweet is on my list of peas to try. Those tomato clusters look amazing. Yes most fruit trees drop some fruit early on, even then sometimes you have to thin them even more to get nice size fruit.

I'm going to have to try those peas! I haven't been very impressed by the peas we've had in the garden so far...it's probably time to switch it up :-) Beautiful harvests!

I am so jealous that your tomatoes are ripe!

Your garden looks gorgeous. I wish that I lived closer so that I could see it in real life.
