Guess I need to get the camera busy. Corn is tassleing, squash and zuc. have been producing over a week now, onions are almost ready to pull. Sugar peas did not do well. Cukes are producing and cabbage is mature. Broccoli and cauliflower have come and gone. Tomatoes next week, watermelons are running and blooming like crazy. Bell pepper ready too. Cantalopes are starting to vine and okra is 7-8 inches tall.

Location makes a great deal of difference in what's being harvested. Over the past week here in the mountains of West Virginia I've harvested turnips, shelling peas and spinach. We've had lettuce, rhubard and asparagus also. I could have some green onions if I wanted. Everything is growing really well but prime harvest season here is July - September. Shoot, I haven't even planted some stuff yet.

I started digging the flooded spuds, and a lot of them have rotted because of the floodwaters standing on them!----dont know how many I can salvage, or how long they will keep, but I still gotta try to save what I can! thanks; sonny

We harvested two rows of our Red Pontiacs on saturday and we have two more rows of Red Pontiacs in the ground. Let me tell you they are yummy!! :P :P

Image

Here's our harvester that we used to dig taters and some beets. Worked great on both!!

Image

Started digging carrots with a spade and thought, I have a 3 point potato plow. Let me tell you that works great! I just kept the tractor to one side of the row and it'll just roll the carrots up and out. That's the only way to dig carrots! I was going to use the potato harvester on the carrorts, but the plow is alot easier going to the depth of the carrots. Here's a pic of just one of 4 rows that we harvested. Going to let the rest grow a little more.

Image

Hope everyone had a good 4th of the July!! 8)

My Mom used to plant running beans in the corn so she didn't have to bend over to pick them and to save space too.Corn is picked, beans are gone, squash, zuc. and cukes too. Tomatoes are wonderful. Okra is ready, just waiting on cantalopes and water mellons.

We're picking a bushel or better each of summer squash, cukes, and zucchini. Tomatoes should be ready in less than a week, and the watermelon, cantelope and honey dew I suspect will be ready in 2 weeks or less. On the 3rd planting of lettuce and peas, and the cabbage, beans, and eggplant should come in with the melons. Onions seem to be coming well. Snapdragons are blooming like crazy and the gladiolus are showing the first sign of buds. We put in over 800 glads and not ever planting them before, it has become a bit of an experiment. All and all, it's going great.
