First tomatoes from the greenhouse. The big one is Coeur de Boeuf, seed from a market fruit, the small one a Beefsteak, seed from the Heritage Seed Library.
First pods from the Carters Polish bean, seeds from the Heritage Seed Library. These are still quite small, I think they'll be a bit bigger when they're mature.
Onion Stuttgarter Giant, a flat bulbed variety that I like. This is one of the biggest, grown from a set.
Below, the full onion harvest laid out on a netting support to cure. The weather is too variable to risk leaving them outside.
