And now we have a tale of two gardens. The fall crops are doing fine at the Bellevue Park garden, but the tomatoes are suffering and there was not a single pepper picked all summer long for me. Yet at home I am still getting tomatoes and peppers, but the harlequin beetles are trashing the newly planted cole crops. I don't really have an explanation. But I still have tomatoes!

The pepper on the left was a nice surprise discovered on the ground, but in flawless condition. The yellow tomato in the middle is Dr. Wyche, and the purply one on the right is a Black Krim. Dinner is going to be yummy.
A few days ago I gave Bob King a small bag of Egyptian Walking Onion bulbs. Today he returned the favor with a nice little supply of yellow onion sets. They were planted at the park, in the west end of bed #2, on the north side behind my planting of the walking onions.
