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.
The cucumbers calmed down for a minute. Today’s pick includes one of each variety, plus ten small tomatoes, two okra, and four smallish onions.
Thankfully we’ll get a few days to catch up on cucumbers and make pickles!
Solid day for variety: six lemon cucumbers, three green ones, a radish, fifteen small tomatoes, two large Brandywines (which look ripe from the top but are a nice rich pink all around the sides), and one okra.
There was a brief period where I thought lemon cucumbers were slowing down. Then today I pulled 9 off the vine which accounts for 1/6 of this year’s total lemon cucumbers.
Also, three green cucumbers, a smallish Brandywine tomato, three okra, and fifteen cherry and yellow pear tomatoes.
Possibly one of the best harvest days of the summer so far (aside from that day I picked three pumpkins in mid-July).
Two green cucumbers, five lemon, ten tomatoes, four okra, four green beans, and five onions (one yellow, two white, two red).
Looking forward to dinner tonight!
All cucumbers and tomatoes today: one green, three lemon, and a nice cluster of cherry/yellow pear tomatoes.
I was out checking the garden just before dark, and I noticed a bug bite in one of the massive Brandywine tomatoes that I’ve been waiting to pick.
So that was enough to convince me it was ready. Here it is, with a pen for scale:
Nice colors today: two green cucumbers, three lemon cucumbers, eight tomatoes, three green beans…
…and a surprise! Three tiny beets that I planted several months ago and forgot about.
Nothing green today, but there was a nice handful of tomatoes and a good-looking yellow squash, which might be the last for the summer, sadly. The vine borers have won!
Why not pick another pumpkin? This one was just as ripe as yesterday’s batch, and it comes along with a lemon cucumber, six okra, eight green beans, and eight yellow tomatoes.
