Gotta hand it to the garden...It hung in there through the worst of this heat. I picked our first Blue Lake GB's today. The majority I picked were looking pretty good considering. There was a handful that I tossed in the compost as you could tell they were dry inside. Not a whole LOT of production considering the size of the patch but I'm grateful for what we did get.
Perhaps with the cooler weather things will pick up a bit. I do see more blooms coming on.
The yellow wax beans are NOT worth picking right now. I think I'm just going to let them dry on the vine and "BINGO"...my first seed save of this year.
Tons of cuc's to give away to the neighbors and I'll be carting a box load of the cured sweet onions (that have been out in the garage) to work to let anyone who wants some take some.
While the onions were a fun experiment, I'm not sure I'll grow them again unless I can find someone to split the order with. Maybe I can talk Debbie or Mrs R into splitting some next year. (We just don't eat that many onions.)
I've picked a few tomatoes. Birds are big problem around here, pecking at the fruit, so it's a rare day indeed that anything ripens on the vine. This year is a sucky year for tomatoes. (My own fault and a good lesson learned.) Some had BER and a few were sun scorched or had bug damage. Those were tossed into the compost pile too. I think we'll have enough good ones to keep SM happy.
That's about it around here...July and August are just not good around here for much production other than tomatoes, peppers and corn.
But peaches are in..:) Maybe I'll get SM to pick up a peck this week.
