I started something new this year with my cherry tomatoes, instead of just having the cherry tomatoes premixed in containers I decided to let customers choose which varieties of cherry tomatoes they wanted to fill their containers with.
We have over 15 different varieties of cherry tomatoes, and are available in many different colors and sizes. We have red, orange, yellow, green, pink, purple, brown, and striped tomatoes. Also available are pear tomatoes, which are shaped like a pear but are the size of a cherry tomato, we have yellow pear, red pear, ivory pear, and purple pear tomatoes.
Since we did not have a frost on Monday morning like they were saying we could, we should be able to have our cherry tomatoes available for at least one more week. And if the first frost will hold off for awhile we may be able to keep picking them even longer. It basically all comes down to the weather as far as how much longer we should have tomatoes for.
Here are a few more pictures that I took the other day around the farm.
Frank showing off a very tall okra. Keep in mind that Frank is 6 ft. tall. That is one tall okra!
One of many many gourds that I will be picking very very soon.
A whole bunch of gourds.
Some may be hard to see but there were quite a few gourds in this one area. The bigger green ones are bird house gourds.
Just to let everyone know pumpkins, winter squash and gourds are going to be coming to the market this next weekend, and I will be continuing to pick more over the next couple of weeks.
