last 2 tomatoes are still on the plant, I thought for sure the squirrel would get them. I wonder what he's up to, I haven't seen any evidence of him on the rooftop lately.
The lipstick pepper and the cherry tomato are still putting out flowers. I've been pinching them off so that the plants focus their energy on maturing the existing fruit and not making new ones. I still have a bunch of green peppers and cherry tomatoes waiting to be plucked, hopefully the fruit will change color before frost arrives.
powdery mildew at the base of the pea plants but I don't care, it's too late in the season to worry about it. Baking soda is an option though if I wanted to treat it.
