After the Harvest

For all of our luck having growing seasons and school years overlap, it seems that the Edible Peace Patch wants to go into peak harvest a week or two after our harvest festival. The squash are looking healthier than ever, enormous orange flowers blooming in the sun. Bright yellow crook-kneck and pale flesh colored butternut. Not to mention the zucchini which keeps coming and the gourd on the fence. And then there is the cucumber. This is the season of cucumber.
We have heard that tomatoes are not the best crop for the hot Florida sun. The word on street is that cherry tomatoes are your best option. But Amy planted some variety of large tomato on her balcony and transplanted it here in February or March and now, hanging almost ripe on the vine, is the largest tomato I have seen yet. And behind it and around it are a dozen more ready to ripen and red soon, too. We will have a bountiful harvest of tomatoes in two or three weeks before the hot summer sun begins to burn out the plants.
There were even radished left over from the radish bed we harvest. And beans to harvest and corn on the cob and the stem. The zucchini are works of art and the okra flower, the first of many ready to bloom, composes a delightful contrast in the Sunday morning light.
We plan to offer the rest of the harvest for sale from behind the school. If it is within school policy. Otherwise, we'll set up a stand somewhere. There will be a regular harvest for several weeks.
