Just before we left, we had approximately zero ripe tomatoes, and a seeming handful of green ones. Yes, the squirrels were even eating the green ones. So we built an impregnable wall of steel around the tomatoes (ok, chicken wire...). The squirrels were DEFEATED!
We even have some red tomatoes in there. Tomorrow we work on extraction.
The peppers that were turning red have now actually turned. Very nice looking.
Beans are thriving, flowers all over the place. Suspect we'll have a decent harvest.
