But after being up late the night before preparing things, then getting up at 4 to load and drive, and being out in the South Alabama heat for 5 hours, we usually feel like one of our wilted table displays when we finally get back home.Next PostThe cherry tomatoes are going gangbusters! We’ll have our 4 variety Tomato Medley Pack this Saturday at Poplar Head farmers market in Dothan. Stop by and check them out! The variety pack includes: Sun Gold – Has an intense fruity flavor. Exceptionally sweet, bright tangerine-orange cherry tomatoes. Their tendency to split precludes shipping, making these an exclusively fresh-market treat. BHN 624 – (who named this?) A cross between a grape tomato and a cherry tomato. The oval shape of a grape, the juicy consistency of a cherry, and an excellent, sweet-rich flavor. Nice, deep red color. Black Cherry – Sweet and robust. The fruits are almost black in color. (They look more pink to me.) The flavor is dynamic – much like an heirloom. Indigo Cherry Drops – Deep, rosy-red with a black-purple cast that is bursting with sweet flavor. High antioxidant (anthocyanin) from the purple as blueberries have.

September 1, 2018 1st greens harvest of Fall! 4 kinds of kale: tuscanodino, red Russian, white Russian and Siberian. Fighting the heat with afternoon waterings. 90 plus degrees (real feel 100 plus!) September 18, 2018 It’s early for Christmas lights, but when you’re trying to save your sugar snap peas from an early cold snap, you do whatever it takes! Hopefully, between the floating row cover and the heat from the lights, I can save at least some of the existing pea pods and the new blossoms.
