We saw this beautiful tomato harvest on Farmscape member Rene's Facebook page, and we couldn't help but post it on our blog. The diversity of colors and varieties is gorgeous!
This havest is from the garden of a Farmscape member in Atwater Village. Pictured are haricots verts green beans, costata romanesco zucchini, green zucchini, golden and bulls blood beets, a slicing cucumber, basil and parsley.
Because it's still early in the summer season, many of our members are receiving their first harvests of beans, squash, and cucumbers alongside their final harvests of beets and carrots from the winter and spring.
Summer squashes, basil and cucumbers are some of the first crops to show up during our summer growing season, and many Farmscape members are starting to receive their first cherry tomatoes as well. While we're still at least a month or so away from bumper crops of beefsteak tomatoes, early results indicate that this will be a particularly successful summer season.
It's been a while since we posted any harvest photos, and this winter harvest is hard to top. Carrots, radishes, green onions, snap peas, lettuce, spinach, dinosaur and curly green kale and a four pound red cabbage. Harvests like this almost make me sad to see the season change. Almost.
