That sure don't look like no Jalapeño

 

Looks like an Anaheim pepper to me. Or a poblano.

It's from 3 Mile island :D  Mrs. P calls it the alligator. I tried to take a few more pictures but the lighting wasn't that good. We must have about 15 jalapenos growing on one plant alone.

Oops, I guess you are right. It's not a jalapeno pepper. I just saw the tag, & it's a Holy Mole Chili pepper. I thought they told us it was a jalapeno pepper. Either way, it's very good. I guess we will have to make some mole sauce :)

Well the silver lining to this awful heat is that my tomatoes are growing like crazy.

Considering I got a late start the raised bed is starting to produce.  I had one big tomato that was just starting to ripen and someone snatched it, hope they enjoy it.  Otherwise I will be getting a bounty of cherry sized tomatoes this week, do not know what types because they were all volunteers.  The beans and peas should start flowering this week.  The corn I planted has started to sprout tassels and it was mentioned I should spray for corn worms, I have no idea, any suggestions?  And I have been enjoying the radishes.  The basil has been productive enough that I have started putting some pesto in the freezer and using it on toast in the morning instead of jam.  With an egg it is so good.  Jalapenos are also starting to come off.  I have more tomatoes, brandywine starts. coming along to plant for fall harvesting.

The blueberry plant is producing fruit!  I guess the move from SJ didn't damage it as much as we'd feared.  And the corn plants we got from our neighbor are looking good.

All seem happy in the horse tub, crowded but compatible.  Parsley, basil, shiso, chives, purslane, French thyme, Mexican and French tarragon, borage with its blue edible flowers; nasturtium around the base.

After three years, the grape vine we transferred in to our backyard has started to grow grapes. Still little at this point, I ate a few, I am so excited!!

This morning in the garden, to get ready for fall, I planted radishes, lots of beets, onions to overwinter, sugar snaps, and nasturtiums to add to salads.  Tomatoes are still producing, so are the jalapenos.  I am leaving the sage till later to create smudge sticks.  Fresh sage just smells like thanksgiving.

We've had a nice strawberry and tomato turnout, considering the soil was hard compacted clay when we moved in.  The herbs are doing nicely.  The corn plants didn't take, but oh well.

 

Tomorrow N is doing the fall plantings, including broccoli and rainbow chard.

Nice.  The first garden I had in San Jose, the soil was so compacted, I could barely work it. Lots of rocks and stones, too. A couple of seasons mixing in organic matter, compost, etc. and it was like black gold.

F**king caterpillar infestation is killing my boxwood. I doused it with poison (for the 3rd or 4th time this year) but wow they are brutal. Next year I'll try to catch it in early spring. I hope the shrubs make it until winter.  :(

Try a blacklight flashlight. They glow white in the blacklight. You can dispatch them while they still look like a little thread. I've saved my tomatoes this season after someone recommended it to me. It might be a little more difficult with a dense boxwood. But you could make it a game for the kids to try and spot them for you ;-)
