Picked my 11th cucumber yesterday. Here's some pics from this morning

1 Compost pile ready, the other still cooking.



See my pickling cukes? Mmmmmm



Peppers FINALLY showing growth. Better late than never.



Will this be the first year I actually have "Large" Onions???



Jungle Looking. No Blight. No BER ...yet. So far so good except it's almost mid July and they aren't even mature size yet.



My Tropical Section doing good. I have to figure out if I'm putting the Hardy Banana in the ground this year or bring it in one more time.

Cambium, do you have to worry about ticks when you are out in your garden? From what I've read the past few years have been really horrible for ticks up here in New Hampshire and Maine, but I know it varies a lot from locale to locale.

I pick, kill and see them a lot. I used to do organic spraying but its pointless if the neighbors don't do it. I have a ton of firewood stored and deers walking around everywhere...so it's a no win battle for me. Meanwhile the only thing that stops me from going outside is the weather. I HATE summer. Humidity is the worst here.

July 10th and no sign of any tomatoes turning red. Unreal. Meanwhile we're having 10th warmest start to July.

Has anyone ever had Okra? First time growing it. I Never ate it.

And I see the Peppers are outpacing the others. All planted same time/height. I bet you soil is more acidic there.



My little Corn Maze of 1 row. LOL Next year I want to actually do a maze.

See the corn almost ready?



Yay! Pepper appearance finally.




So excited about the onions. I never was able to get them this big and I think they have a little more growth left in them.

I had okra when I was a kid ... it was at the house of an aunt who lived in Oklahoma. I'd never heard of it, and I hated it. Of course that means nothing -- as a kid just about the only veggie I liked was corn.

The onions look really good!! When is harvest time for them?

When the tops turn brown and fall over. I'm thinking another couple weeks?

Did you do anything different with the onions this year to get them bigger than you've grown them before?

Only thing I can think of is I used organic Compost. Made of Leaves, Grass, Aged Horse Manure/chips, and kitchen scrap. Other than that I didn't add anything to them and watered less than usual.

July 13, 2014 Harvest.

Stopped at 72 potatoes. Leaving the rest in for another week at least. Leaving them outside for 1 hour outside so soil falls off (trying to beat the rain) Then bringing them into a cool dark ventilated place.

Bunch of Onions and some Radishes.

Corn almost ready.
