Putting up the Harvest, Awaiting the Next

I noticed some suspect leaves on a few tomato plants this morning. Clipped them immediately and harvested the ripe tomatoes. Blight? I hope not. I need to get the harvest in the can fast, literally.

Lemon Boy Tomatoes

Skinned for canning
Processed and ready for storage
Tomatillos in flower

My tomatillo plant is rife with yellow flowers (over 50 by my count), so I installed a trellis and tied them up. This plant gave one large tomatillo about a month ago, but just flowers since. I'm hoping the sunlight will encourage them to fruit. 

Rosehips ripening
The rose bush above needs no encouragement, however. Rose hips flourish.
