What are you harvesting?

My Tabasco plant is growing and that's it. My jalapeño plant is doing awesome. 4 peppers and some more soon and buds growing. I'll be planting more of these in the same place next season Lord willing. My mint plant is the best thing I've ever planted. Minimal effort and maintenance and it's already a bush. I will be doing more with mint in the future as well.

I picked my first watermelon today. It's a Black Diamond. It's chilling in the fridge and I can't wait to taste it.

Blurberriers!  Tons of them this year.  Strawberries not so much.  Peppers are starting to come in along with some tomotos.

We put up 2 more quarts of tomatoes this weekend. I will be picking up some pine nuts so I can make some pesto out of the basil that is growing on the deck. The pesto freezes well and keeps its color if the leaves are blanched.

I'm getting ready to clean out all of my earth beds and getting them prepped for planting.  Probably wait to plant the next crop towards the end of August maybe and get past some of the heat.  I will no longer have rabbit manure so I'll need to do some research into how long before I can safely add quail droppings.

Since my garden plot has been somewhat of a loss due to a thieving coon I made a trip to the farmer's market. I have 6 quarts of pink-eyed peas, 8 quarts of snap beans, 6 quarts of crowder beans, and 5 quarts of creamed corn in pint freezer bags that we put up earlier today. The mountain peaches have started showing up at the market and I picked up a peck. They still need to ripen a little bit. I also picked up some cucumbers and put up 3 quarts of refrigerator pickles and a quart of whole hot peppers that I got off my pepper plants.

I do have one okra plant that survived the coon. It is producing enough to eat but not enough to put any up. The tomatoes have slowed a bit and we are eating more of them so we haven't put any more up. The bell pepper plants are now yielding about 1 pepper per week between the two plants and is at consumption production also.

Getting ready to pull all my old stuff up and getting the soil prepped for the new stuff.  It's been hot here but also getting a lot of rain.  Almost on a daily basis for a while.  Sometimes, and actually mostly often it's a downpour.  

Looking forward to getting new crops of kale, tomatoes, romaine, parsley, garlic, spearmint etc going for the fall season.
