Bell and banana peppers. Have some jalapeno I could pick, but will leave to let ripen to red color so I can make chipolata powder. We're about out of last years.

If this rain would ever cease for a week at a time, I think the garden would really pop.
Okra plants are hanging in there. Tallest is only about 8". It's needs to get in gear....

Thirsty little buggers for sure. We have 2 *whodunnits* in the compost bun. One by the strawberry's, one by the chickenshit pile  ::).
I'm watching to see which produce first.  ;D Huge plants, leaves as big around as a basketball.

Well, yes but I ignored that and worried about the garden.

Accustomed to typos on forums.  :D

Handful of peppers, one lonely tomato, and about 2#'s of taters out of the compost bin. I dug them all, and was surprised at how many there were.

Cucumbers, peas, and cucamelons.  If the Japanese beetles didn’t creep me out so much I would collect them for the chickens.    :-[

Well if given a choice I'd rather handle the jap beetles instead of the horn worms. Had one of those yesterday. Chickens fight over those things.


Lets see. Tomatoes, half dozen turnips that the tops are dying, and of course beetles.

Use one of those traps but cut the bottom out of it.  Or put down some milky spore in the spring.

On a personal note:  still squash, zukes, raspberry, blueberry, cukes, and beans.  Pulled the last bit of radish and carrots.  Watermelon seems to be nipped by rabbits as they set.  3-4 cantaloupe set and are growing well.  Tomato and peppers are plumping up.  A few cherry tomato have ripened, but everything is mostly green still.  Pulled the spent cauliflower and broccoli plants.  Did a fall planting of more beans, brussel sprouts, sunflower, spinach, onion, and early peas.  On a sad note, woke up Sunday to zukes taking a hit by the vine borer.  Only a matter of time...  Will replace them with more cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and/or beets.

I think a vine borer got one of our volunteer who-dun-it squashes that came up in the strawberry raised bed. It just flat wilted one day.

Picked 1 carrot
tomatoes
peppers
turnips
hand full of green beans

I've got one of the replants trying to croak....may just be water. We'll see if it perks up tomorrow.
Or I could have a mole under it.

Hopefully too much water. Any holes near the base with frass in them?
