From NOAA:

La Niña—the cool phase of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation climate pattern—is still here in February 2021, but forecasters estimate about a 60% chance that neutral conditions will return this spring.

That is too bad.  Pacific salmon in the northwest Pacific could use a few years of La Niña conditions.

At least it is summer!  Seems like EVERY season is weird these days.

Beautiful produce!   

Figs.  I can't but help think of picking figs that were close to rotting on the vine chez les Berbers in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco.   It was so sweet.
 
I have one fig tree in the ground that doesn't produce anything or grow new branches. I think I overwatered it. Have another in a pot that is straggly but we get some fruit.

 
The neighbours here have a mature fig that hardly produces fruit also, they were told to dig and chop at all roots about a metre out from the trunk and to threaten

and curse the tree  (old Italian superstition!). It did produce a modest crop after that but subsequent efforts failed.

Oh! Just checked out your blog. Does Rob = buddy on RP.com? The pic on your blog resembles buddy's avatar here.

Rob is a licensed falconer?!? Wow. Wow. Much respect. I became somewhat obsessed with birds of prey around the 6th grade. Magnificent animals. I hope Rob and Mag's situation has improved.

One thing I love about the RP forum—you realize that members have connected with each other far beyond online posts. It gives me hope that America will endure.

You got all those tomatoes from 26 plants. "Phwooarrr" as the Brits like to say. I saw this article on WaPo the other day and thought of your harvest. If you can't access the article online, please let me know if you're interested in reading it and I'll happily send post it here on or in a PM to you.

Any pics and updates you have on your garden are most welcome to my eyes. Far more interesting than arguing about/posting epics about politics.


 
Rob is Manbird.

Today, I picked 4 lbs. of jalapenos and 10 lbs. of tomatoes. I have about 10 lbs. of tomatoes on the table and a bunch of eggplant and bell peppers in the fridge from the weekend.

Your link wants money. LOL. from what I see it's an article on canning? I do that.
 

Ah, the mysterious Manbird! For a while I thought he was just an inside joke amongst the RP Forum Kool Kids. But he is The Falconer!



(Sadly, Giphy doesn't seem to have any gifs of SNL's Will Forte in that role. Poncy Brian Ferry will have to do.)




I have a special talent when it comes to eggplants: from time to time I buy them, put 'em in the fridge, fart around trying to choose a great recipe for them, spend more time eventually gathering the other ingredients...and then realize that the eggplants have spoiled. This has happened repeatedly. I have a bit of an egpplant phobia. I'll eat them happily if someone else cooks 'em though.

I figured you could can if you were griping about the cost of the lids. At that price, yours is a righteous gripe. WaPo and the NY Times are both running mid-pandemic/economic downturn articles on coping that have excited, super-friendly tones...and fairly pedestrian subjects. But I hope you're heartened to know that the Liberal Elite newspapers are in tune with your pastimes.

I am astonished that you have a 100+ pound harvest. How many plants do you have? How many space does it take to grow that many tomatoes? 
 
I have 7 beds, measuring about 336 sq. ft. total. Not a huge garden, but tightly planted. 2 beds are packed with 26 tomato plants
here's a pic from a few years ago. it was taken about a month after planting.
My old abandoned blog has lots of pics https://growingupjersey.wordpr...

there seems to be a COVID related canning supplies shortage. what's available is ridiculously priced. canning lids are going for average $10.00 for a box of 12. they should be about $3. 
stupid COVID.

WOOHOO! I found a Walmart in Philly that has them at a great price. ordered 20 boxes for pickup. I hope they actually have them in stock.
