I picked a lot of pole beans, I usually don't plan these types of bean but the pillbugs have been getting to my Bush beans. 8-10 zucchini plants are getting bigger. One is having lots of baby female zucchini flowers. My okra plants are getting big, but not super big.

Love garden surprises! Do you freeze the okra whole or sliced?

I did the same with out pitiful "garden"....pulled the tomato plants up. We got 4 tomatoes total. One green pepper from that one. I'm letting the cucumber plant stay in. 3 from that one.

What a waste of time.

on, my very favorite and as I mentioned I rarely even see it at the farmers markets anymore. As a kid I called them scalloped summer squash. I did get enough green beans for a meal a couple of days ago; we will have them tonight. I also probably have enough okra for dinner one night this week, with a lot more in the future. Otherwise as I have said, this year has been a disaster.

sliced ready for tomatoes & onions or corn meal and flour. This year we dehydrated some fried okra sticks. Nice treats.

We've eaten summer squash until they are coming out our ears.

This old dog has learned a new trick. This is the daily drill. Some days twice. I never knew the camera used had a built in mic that could pick up the sound of the okra hitting the bottom of the bucket from 150' away.

I picked up a cucumber this morning and at least a pound of beans every day. It's hot here, heatwave kind of hot, maybe that's why.

expecting a cooler than normal Sept so it looks like we are about to hire our grass guys to tear down our fence, dismantle the garden and settle for totally raised containers next year. Our daughter has some that are about 3 ft high, great for the back back old ladies and men. I did pick a bunch of Okra yesterday and have about a dozen cherry tomatoes that will be ready next week with still some to come. But for the most part the season is over.
