August garden update

After the extremely hot weather of the past week or so I didn’t have a lot of hope for the plants growing in containers on our deck.  Amazingly (thanks to the loving attention that S has given them and the water they received from our pet sitter) they have held on and there are vegetables ready for harvest.

The edamame, which had flowered profusely without any sign of fruit, have now produced a number of their distinctive fuzzy pods.

The peppers continue to flourish.

Two kinds of eggplant are ripening as well.

And the tomatillos look almost ready to roast and turn into a refreshing, tangy, salsa verde.
