How did your onions do this year, and when did you plant them? I see a big red onion in your basket there and mine pretty much all bolted (except a few yellow ones). What's your zone-9 secret :)
Amazing how far ahead of us in Northern California you are in Bakersfield. I'm just starting to get green baby tomatoes.
The onions sets were planted in February. I give the marjority of the credit to importing soil for my raised beds. The native soil to my area is solid clay. Although the San Joaquin Valley has wonderful farming soil, I'm located closer to the foothills where clay and cobble is king. Other than that, I don't have a clue on my good luck, Maureen.Lisa, I plan on canning very, very soon. It looks like all 12 tomato plants will be maturing all at once. This is perfectly fine since the peppers are ready to join them and some onions to make salsa - my favorite condiment.
ratatouille, YUM. Lucky gardener! We found a recipe years ago where you make the ratatouille and then stuff it into a big tomato with some grated mozzarella and chopped basil and then grill that tomato. It's so delicious that we sometimes make it two nights in a row, even though it's very labor intensive
