Tomatillo harvest! Tomatillos are ready to be picked when they fill out their papery husk. Similar to tomatoes, but less juicy and more tart, tomatillos are excellent for making green salsa (salsa verde)

The purple potato haul. We also harvested many tomatoes, and peppers from this plot before removing the plants (frost will be here soon) and adding them to our composter behind Hart House

Removed plants go into our composter to become compost for next year!
