Purple is a fruit*

Potatoes, carrots (purple, white and yellow), red onion, thyme, beets (Chioggia, also called candy striped). All from the garden. Add salt, pepper, olive oil and roast in the oven! Delicious!

One of many tomato batches from the garden. Orange banana, wild tomatoes, Hundreds and Thousands, Yellow Pear shaped tomatoes, Black cherry and Tumbling Tom.

*Quote from the Simpsons on why it’s OK to eat candy when you’re on diet. It has nothing to do with the above pictures. But that was what my husband said when he saw all the purple.

    Dagmar, I’m curious about your little yellow pear tomatoes. I grew an heirloom variety which looks the same as those. Some of them were absolutely delicious, bright and with a touch of lemon flavor. Others were bland and tasteless. I really struggled with picking them at the perfect ripeness. Did you have similar problems or did you have the knack for when to pick?

    All my little red cherry tomatoes were tasty, even a little under or over-ripe.

    I’ve started thinking of which tomatoes to put into my new greenhouse next year. Those orange banana ones look interesting!!!

    What abundance! It looks amazing. Our garden hasn’t produced much this year – some strawberries and some tomatoes that we still hope will ripen.

    Hej Dagmar!

    All the pictures of the bounty from your garden are fabulous. They look as if they taste of sunshine. The striped beets, amazing! My first time to ever see such a thing.
