|Fordhook Acorn. A new heirloom for us this year. I liked it. Not prolific, but then it was a tough year.|
|Charleston Gray watermelon. We only got the one, but that's plenty of seed for next year. It was a great tasting melon.|
|One of my market displays. Mrs. Mouse is shopping for, what else, Mouse Melons. lol |
Mexican Sour Gherkin cucumbers (also known as Mouse Melons) did well this year. I even pickled a jar, which were almost too cute to eat.
|Striped Cavern Tomatoes. These were pretty neat..mostly hollow inside for stuffing or slicing like a bell pepper.|
|Green Zebra Tomatoes. Fully ripe, they stay green, but not a hard green. They taste just like a ripe, red tomato.|
|Another new fave - Sikkim Cucumber. Easy to tell when they are ready, because they turn this lovely brown color. The texture is like a crisp, raw potato, but the flavor is mild cucumber.|
|Cherry tomatoes, leftover from market and prepped for the dehydrator. I grew Sungold, which were sooo sweet and good (also prolific producers), green grape, green gooseberry, yellow/white heirloom, and a few others.|
|Dehydrated Ground Cherries (Husk Cherries). Sweeter than raisins!|
|I wish I'd taken a pic of the burgundy okra plant. Gorgeous!! I can't wait to grow those again next year!|
|More market displays.|
We were over 7 inches low on rain for the year at the end of the season. We've gotten so much since then that we are only 2 inches low. Sure could've used all that rain when I had plants in the ground! Oh, well. Next year we'll have irrigation set up first thing, and at least we found which varieties do well no matter what.
