What I do with the extra cucubers after giving some away.

8 Cans in 3 weeks. 1st time canning cukes this year.

About 20+ cukes from 6 plants. But I harvested about 5 from one plant so far.

Well... as always one fun thing about gardening is the challenges each year. Whether its new or old it keeps you on your toes and keeps your brain learning.

Cucumber success slowing down... Have to find out what happened. Could just be the plant itself got a disease. So I thinned them out



Finally! A pepper in sight. Solo.




This tomato plant is called Cuor Di Bue. I got the seeds from Italy. Heart Shaped

I thought I had a picture of when I put in the Onions. I believe it was beginning of May?

Anyway... here's my harvest yesterday I've never had such big onions before. (my compost helped)

I gotta do much more next year.

Pulled some beets too.

July 25, 2014. Summer fun. I Spent 40 minutes pulling Potatoes out of the ground.

29 rows of 4. Plus the 72 from last time.

A 10' x 4' area yielded 188 Potatoes. Red Norlun and Yellows. Red took couple weeks longer. Reds have thicker skin on them.

Picked 5 corns too.

Warm Humid evening! Lots of worms in there.



There were some big mammas in there.

Cambium, your potato harvest is amazing!! But I must admit I got squeamish reading about the worms ... were you ever squeamish about the critters you find out there in your garden? If so, how did you get over it?

(And again, many congrats on a great harvest!!)
