We had a bit of rain overnight the night before so yesterday I went through the garden to do a clean pick. My 14" diameter wicker basket is overflowing! I am so very happy with the California Wonder green peppers. This heirloom variety is really performing nicely. Everything in the basket as well as the cucumber are heirloom varieties. I will be saving a lot of seeds this year but then I save a lot of seeds every year.
It rained a bit more overnight and is threatening rain today. We've had a bit of drizzle but nothing much so far. The radar is showing mainly cloud coverage with light rain in our area but there is another storm cell behind it so perhaps we will get more rain yet. In the meantime I will be putting up those lovely green peppers to enjoy through the winter. The plants are loaded so there are more to come and I don't want to waste any. That might be the last cucumber though. There are a couple of small cucumbers but I'm not sure if they will reach maturity as the vine isn't looking very good. I'll keep an eye on it.
