A Mid-July Harvest
Also, my onions are looking fairly decent compared to years past. I went back to starting them from seed and waited until the chance of any frost was over before setting them out. This seemed to have helped.
Aside from the Sungold and Black cherries, I picked our first slicing tomato this past weekend - a Cherokee Purple I believe. Usually the first tomatoes of the season aren't so great but this one was VERY good. It still amazes me how different (and amazing) homegrown heirloom tomatoes are compared to anything you might find at the supermarket or even most farmers markets.
I also picked the first hot peppers of summer. Hungarian Wax is incredibly early and always a reliable producer.
