What a beautiful set-up, NickMan. Your peppers are ahead of ours, but our tomatoes are bearing heavily and we just ate a few yellow cherry type (too lazy to look up the name, but they were sweeeet).

The greens are just about chewed to lace by some bug or other. We've had two servings of yellow beans, but FORGOT to succession-plant.

Thanks for the update.

Zone 7a. An update.

We couldn't find Cubanelle or Carmen plants. We did find a Poblano, which yielded only five fruits, so we won't try these again, and a Pimiento, which gave us about eight, but the skin is too tough to eat. Won't get these again either. Should've gone with the shishiito!

Banana pepper was okay, not as high a yield as Cubanelle.


Prolific tomato harvest, but far too many of them rotted before ripening. I'm hearing this problem from others, too. We had the Park's Whopper, which we probably won't get again, huge but lacking flavor, the Celebrity, my favorite for taste, a yellow cherry, Black Prince, which did poorly, and Bonnie Original, merely 'meh.'

The yellow cherry did the best, not rotting, but giving lots of sweet little fruits that even the neighbors, who are trying to palm off their excess tomatoes on us, are more than happy to get some.

Beans did all right, not as heavy yield as previous years.

By mid-August, it's 'Die, garden, die!' Because we are tired of it. Now in September, unless everything gets its second wind, this seems to be coming true.
