We're still doing tomatoes, plenty of salad vegetables, fennel just about over, basil still going strong, all the other herbs still producing, carrots the same, same with the onions and garlic finished, most things already done, like bottling and freezing, pumpkins not yet ready, what we're really starting to check every day are the vineyards, it looks like an early year this year.....
our vineyard's very small, much smaller than the others, but they're commercial vineyards, but looks like a good year's on the way unless it starts raining!

We have so far this summer gotten 2 tiny chilies, 2 pea size tomatoes, 3 wild strawberries and a lot of chocolate mint and pineapple sage. And the season is over soon and now the tomatoes are full of green tomatoes and the wild strawberries has gone from half dead to full of leaf...

What is the average temperature there? Chiles and tomatoes need lots of sunshine and warmth.

Green tomatoes will ripen off the vine, or you can make fried green tomatoes or green tomato gratin.

This summer we have had between 22- 35 C, so it hasnt been too cold, the wild strawberries was getting into bloom in May when we had freak snow fall, yes it went from 17C to 0 in one day, next day it was back up to 12 C.

And I tried new type of tomatoes that was supposed to give us lots of tomatoes quickly, 4 of my neighbors tried the same breed and at most we have gotten 2 or 3 tiny ones 3 months of being out, it said 3- 4 weeks...
We have lots of pea sizes green ones.

I'm so jealous! Poblanos! I can often get them in the large grocers in Toronto if and when I go there, but seeing as trips are far and few between...

It is not a popular pepper here. You never see them in the nurseries in the spring. I ask at all the markets hoping to put a couple of bees in their bonnets. One guy who usually does them did not this year, sigh... and I haven't gone to Toronto lately...
