I picked some okra this morning but not enough for a meal yet: probably next week. Also was able to find a couple more cukes, with still some to come and I counted dozens of tomatoes, but they are a couple of weeks away from picking, at least.

All of my tomatoes are ripening and I picked a bushel this morning. Also picked a bushel of peppers, and a bag of squash and zucchini.

I guess you will be doing some canning today or in the near future. I can tomatoes as much as I do anything, maybe more.

In response to the calcium, if you haven't any egg shells and you have blossom rot on the end of the tomato, which is what I had this year, you can also buy crushed oyster shells and add them to the soil. You can buy this at any animal feed store.

I watered yesterday, told hubby probably one more or maybe 2 more waterings unless it rains and I think I will call it over this season. I did pick a few more okra yesterday. We leave for 10 days , 3 weeks from today. I probably will have the garden pretty much cleaned out before we leave. I will have to just play it by ear. I have several soranto (spelling) peppers that can be picked but they are really small.

JalapeƱos win, they've blown every other vegetable/fruit away this summer, I've lost count of how many peppers they've produced so far, and they're not slowing down at all. Also getting a lot of cherry tomatoes now, out of nowhere, it's like they can sense fall is coming so they're in overdrive.

Actually pulled the cuke plants out last night, picked a few more Okra and think I am going to pick some peppers today. even though they are small, they will be great and I doubt they are going to grow much more. This season is about a thing of the past and next season is just a dream for a few more months. I have decided to try beets, radishes and potatoes next year before I plant the warm weather veggies.

It's been a dozen years since we grew carrots, but I'm so happy with the results from a container that we're sure to grow 'em that way again.

My winter rye is sewed and raked in and my red russian kale is just a few weeks away from harvesting.
