Aint nothing like going out in the garden and picking corn, cucumbers and tomatoes sliced, peppers and squash fried, green beans, and Salmon on the grill….Garden is doing great….Great time of the year….The wife did up, Strawberry Jam, Pickled Peppers, Pickles, Canned Green beans, froze green beans…Canned carrots,and Dilly Beans….Unfotrunately due to the rain the Squash garden got Mildew but the Winter squash are mostly of the appropriate size so I'm hoping they will ripen and be OK….The zucs have pretty much stopped and the yellers are slowing down big time….Tomatoes are doing fine still although some around have complained of blight…I only have one row of 20 so I've been keeping them sprayed with organic spray so we shall see…..Hope everyone else has had a great year….Dave…. :D

Sounds about right. I think today is sweet and sour red cabbage day, sweet pickles last heat before canning and jam of some kind, raspberry I think she said. Tomatoes ok but not doing real good. Give me your address and I'll ship you a few tons of Zuc. :lol: There should be a law about no more than one plant of that stuff per block!!!!!!!! :D Vern

…..Yep that would be helpful….The wife just bought a doo-dad that makes a pasta like looking product out of a " zuc "…( a vegetti )…And she wants to use that instead of a peeler for "healthy pasta "….I had about 6 zuc plants and now have to go buy some….But I think there plentiful at least :lol: …I have some yellers still growing and some spaghetti squash laying on the straw waiting to ripen so I may be able to avoid it... :lol: .I planted some defiant tomato's along with others and have been spraying with Bonide Copper Fungicide, which was recommended to deter late blight…So far it seems to be working….Its used by organic farmers….I lost 60 plants to late blight last year….All 5 foot and healthy one day and then kerput….Dave

our garden was terrible this year, we relocated over the past winter and I had to establish a new garden. well the drainage is bad here, (clay) and all the rain we had this year, the garden did not produce. I pulled tomatoes out of the ground this weekend and there were very little root on them. beans were bad, no butternut squash , a few cucs no peppers no eggplant, a few zucchini, to round it up, we did not get much of anything from our garden. I will be installing raised beds this fall and fill them with good composted soil, hoping to have a good season next year.
