today we only got a couple of tomatoes so I could make my 6 fruit marmalade tomorrow. It looks like a couple more okra will be ready tomorrow plus a couple of good sized bells and a few more beans. I don't think we will get any more tomatoes for a day or two.

Nice

Could you, or anyone else, post some pictures of peas? I planted some pea seeds for the first time this year...and they are growing crazy but I don;t have any support for them. I want to improve for next year


I haven't been up top today but I picked yellow peppers, a squash, a zucchini, and some peas for my stepdaughter last night

You really don't want to see mine. I have a mess of sticks and string
for them to hang onto. They are a bush type edible pod variety and
don't hold on well so they are mostly on the ground until I water and put them back up. This is on one of their better days.

Ok Happ, since you mentioned it, I'll quarter a zucchini lengthways (after washing it off first, of course) and cut into slender pieces, no more than an eighth of an inch thick, add three yellow squash, cut the same as the zucchini, finely chop up one medium sized red onion (have half a row of 'em) and de-seed and thinly slice one poblano, cook in olive oil until just tender (a little salt doesn't hurt but don't go overboard) after everything is soft and the onions clear, add 2 tbsp of real butter, stir everything around in the butter and serve.



I almost forgot to mention, I picked my first 4 cantaloupe this morning, was going for tomatos and the smell of ripe cantaloupe was overwhelming.....dang!!!the one I ate was GOOOOOD! Sold three to a local market that has been selling my stuff all season thus far, still have two more in the fridge. Am waiting impatiently for the stems on the watermelon to turn brown. Won't be long now!!
