RIPENING ON THE WINDOW SILL
Because we have had such a cool and foggy summer here in Santa Monica, I have decided to ripen my tomatoes and pumpkins in my warm home. My tomato and pumpkin plants became infested with mildew (which spreads easily by air in our community garden settings). I felt it best to rip the plants out, in order to help control the issue for my own garden and my neighboring community gardeners plots.

I was told by a neighboring community gardener, Lisa, to bundle my tomatoes all together in a towel, in order to heat them even more and ripen them faster.
Our sugar pumpkins! We will be carving these a little closer to Halloween.
My husband loves a hot pepper!
