Regrettably, I’ve not managed the time to take good care of the vines in my Giant Tomato Project this season. Here’s my first 2 lb. tomato and it came from the open field, receiving minimal care:
Polish Giant Beefsteak (2.222 DT 2013):

At the moment, nothing else looks like it will come close to this one this year. But there should still be 8-10 weeks left in the season…
Regrettably, lettuce has fizzled out, but a Fall crop should be ready in 3-4 weeks. Also, scaling back on the herbs and a few other items this week. Tomatoes are coming on strong, so pull out that Italian cookbook! Plenty of summer squash again also – consider freezing some for winter use.
Projected contents for this Wednesday:
