I noticed two more big tomatoes that were ready to pick right before lunch, which was convenient for the purpose of making a big fat tomato sandwich.

How crazy is the one on the left?



Daily Harvest – July 31, 2017

Back to relative harvest poverty after yesterday’s mega-pick.

Just one okra, along with 22 small tomatoes, one pumpkin, and a nice black diamond watermelon, first of the summer. At the moment it looks like I’ll get at least three or four more watermelons, which I’m really looking forward to.

You know the real secret to growing lemon cucumbers?

Go on vacation for six days and let them work.

Totals for a six-day period where I didn’t pick anything: 86 small tomatoes, 2 large tomatoes, 14 okra, 36 (!) lemon cucumbers, 5 green cucumbers, 1 pumpkin, and 1 yellow squash.

That makes a season total of 104 lemon cucumbers, 99 of which have come from one vine. Wow.


Daily Harvest – July 23, 2017

It’s been one whole month since I started this site, and I’m glad to say I’ve posted at least once (and had something to harvest) every day so far.

I think I have to acknowledge that green cucumbers might be done for this summer, but the lemon cucumbers seem to be going on strong (65 so far, 63 from one vine).

Also picked today: four okra, eight small tomatoes, and two more early pumpkins that needed to come off a dying vine.
