The little gardens I have been tending sure look scraggly now.
The tomato plants are still producing tomatoes, but not as many. The peppers are still growing as are the basil, chives, oregano and spearmint tea. The pumpkin vine only produced one small white pumpkin.
I used the tomatoes I picked yesterday and the day before to make another batch of Lesís sweet sauce. The only tomatoes pictured are the ones I picked yesterday. The one heirloom tomato was big, so it helped in making Lesís sweet sauce. I used fennel seed again and also the Classico tomatoes for Lesís sweet sauce. The tomatoes and the one can of Classico tomatoes made two quarts of Lesís sweet sauce. I have upped the oven temperature in slow roasting the tomatoes, garlic, fennel seed, sea salt, olive oil, fresh basil and oregano. That method seems to be fine and didnít scorch the tomatoes or other ingredients.
I used a few small tomatoes to make a pasta salad.
I really dislike when the growing season is coming to an end.
I still have to use the good basil to make some pesto. Maybe, that will be this weekend.
