Winter Harvest is Done, Almost

The heat of summer is moving in early, again. I harvested the Irish potatoes and onions today. They are done and the beds retilled. Not sure what comes next in that spot. Maybe some melons. The tomatoes are in high gear finally. We harvested about 40 today, and the plants are overloaded with green tomatoes with well over 100 on the vines, and one monster, about 6 inches or more across.

And this is will beds with minimal soil prep, all organic, planted late, and with a healthy cover of Oak leaves.

So, what's left to harvest.  Remember those Yukon Blue Potatoes.  They are doing awesome.   After digging the first plant, I saw they were still producing, so I left the rest in.  I will easily have a 20 to 1 return on those.   The few beets I made are left, along with the Kale and Swiss Chard.  All look great.   I'll get to the beets next week.  Not sure about the rest.
