Most of my vegetables are thriving, with only a few disappointments.
Squash Vine Borers got my acorn squash again this year. It looks like I'm going to start using floating row covers if I want any type of squash.
Carmona sweet peppers are just starting to ripen. The plants are prolific, and the fruits are large. Perfect roasted and turned into muhummara.
Co-blogger Debbie came over for a tour of my roof. Peppers are behind me, melon and beans in front.
My eggplants have really produced. Here are some Diamond. I think, maybe they're Black Beauty. In addition, I have a couple of asian varieties, Ping tung long and Udumalapet. If you're looking for ideas on what to do with all your eggplant, crack open an Indian cookbook. They've been making eggplant delicious for 5000 years.
About half my tomatoes are going strong, the other half have black fuzz and dying flowers. Rooftop squirrels seem to be taking more than their share this year.
