Earthbox Update - Week Twenty: Labor Day Weekend, But Summer's Still Going Strong

It's Labor Day weekend, usually signifying the end of summer and a farewell to wearing white jeans (sniff, sniff). Acknowledging this, the weather's turned from upper 90s to a more manageable mid-70s, but the blue skies and sunshine remain. And for that, this inadvertent yogini's garden thanks you, weather gods, because all these green tomatoes and peppers need continued sun to continue ripening.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I find the zebra-like striations as peppers and tomatoes turn from green to ripe-red absolutely lovely.

Big and beautiful and starting to ripen
Zebra-like striations from green to red - so lovely!

These red, horn-shaped Carmens look spicy but aren't...

My first sun gold cherries...quite a coup! From a two-inch tall seedling I found growing in the outdoor carpet with two tiny leaves to abig, tall fruit-producing plant! Evolutionarily primed for survival? These seeds are worth saving!
