All of my 13 trial varieties have set fruit by now and some are getting rather large...

In other vegetable news, I harvested 1.4 lbs of zucchini today,

and another 1.8 lbs of Yukon Gold. That largest one is hefty!
I've also collected a total of 14 lbs of plums over the last week. I'll do a post soon on what I'm doing with all THAT pound-age!
