Blue Berries tomatoes are ripening
Black Icicles are getting there too, plus the tallest one just topped the 7foot tall cages:
There’s at least two more that’ll definitely make the 7foot mark, and a couple more that may or may not.
Sugar Baby Watermelon:
Melon Pear fruit:
Note-I didn’t realize till it was to late, but quite a few places recommend caging these plants, like tomatoes, and for much the same reason. The weight of the fruit flattens the plants out. Something to keep in mind if we decide to grow them again.
I’ve pulled two zucchini out of the garden, and made a batch of zucchini bread, just cause.
Oh, and this is Friday’s cucumber harvest:
JUST Friday’s harvest. Of course I’ve had at least a few almost every day for the last week-plus, which I’ve mostly been eating, cause these are seriously good eating cukes. So I made two quarts of refrigerator pickles. Which used up less than half of Friday’s harvest. Gave away 8 or so to a friend. Harvested another pile at least that big on Sunday. Gave away another handful to a neighbor. Gave away the whole pile to a former co-worker who planned to do a serious batch of pickles. And between yesterday and today (Tuesday) I refilled the strainer with cucumbers. I think my cucumber plants are happy. Time to play around with a wider variety of pickles I think.
