Garden update: Harvest!

I'm happy to report that despite the terrible weather this summer, I have actually been able to eat some of what I planted.

Behold the first picked tomato, along with some basil leaves. All that's missing is some fresh mozzarella and balsamic (which was added a few minutes later).

We've actually since picked the large one in the foreground too. After a long period of relative inactivity, they finally started ripening, with tons more little ones sprouting up. Very exciting.

The peppers that we were so excited about (it was the first vegetable to sprout) stopped growing one day. Then not too long ago, they both turned yellow.

And then two of the other peppers turned red. Strange things are happening in the garden!

The cucumbers, however, are pretty much dead, and nothing much is happening with the eggplants at all. But it seems that under the circumstances (i.e. ridiculous amounts of rainfall, hardly any sun) I did pretty well for a first time gardener.
