Despite a very rainy summer in New England we still managed to have a really nice garden this year. Smiley

For some reason not much luck with squash or cucumbers but everything else was thriving! Some tomatoes...



More tomatoes, some eggplant, peppers and a lone lemon cucumber.



Some cherry tomatoes and tiny peppers.



Squash with the blossom still attached.

I have only really grown tomatoes and zucchini this year with the same success as you.  You have a lot more variety of tomatoes though, I am jealous of that.  My green peppers are just now starting to grow.  I can't wait until they get bigger.

Great varieties!  I love heirlooms.  there's nothing like growing something that fits with where you live.  I always try to grow natives.

Looks like you have some gold nugget tomatoes and a few jalapenos in there.  I'm curious about one thing.  Where in the world did you come up with chocolate bells?  Did you save any of the seeds?  If so, maybe we could swap, because I have saved all of my seeds from red bells and California wonders.

And your tomatoes are lovely.

I should post pics of this year's harvest.

SO lovely!
I moved from the country to the city last year and a garden is the thing I miss most. I've planted cherry tomatoes & baby lettuce indoors, but I long for the day that I can have a crop like yours!!

Thanks, glad you all like the photos!

I don't have any more seeds and didn't save any this year, but they sell the mini bell pepper seeds at the Seed Savers Exchange in a couple of different colors including the chocolate. www.seedsavers.org. Hope this helps! Smiley
