Getting close to putting the garden to bed. Only thing left is the jalapenos and some cherry tomatoes.

Planted 200 elephant garlic cloves last week. Perhaps another 50 soft neck garlic cloves to plant tomorrow.
I have an excuse. CRS.

A few late season pix.Still have tomatoes and eggplant. Got rid of the acorn and spaghetti squash, --summer squash just finished, --Honey bear and butternut squash are still on green vines but getting close. Melons are almost done. The food grade pumpkins are still on green vines and we been trying to haul more water to them til the vines die out. The cabbage is done,--hauled over 100 fifteen pound heads to the food bank along with a couple tons of other veggies this summer.

Glad to see some gardens produced. Ours was a complete failure.
After a two month drowning and two replant attempts, we were able to salvage 2 gallons of Roma Tomatoes and 2 watermelons.
No Beans, No slicing tomatoes, no corn, no pickles, no cucumbers. OOF. That was a lot of work for not much harvest.

Now looking for a set of 3-point hillers.

We don’t put out much garden, anymore, but my wife still puts out some. I’ve watched others success and failures and it’s hard to believe the difference between areas that really aren’t too far apart. We had about a dozen tomato plants and I couldn’t find enough people to give tomato’s to. I ate all I could, made a lot of salsa, shared with all the neighbors and still have lots of tomato’s rotting in the garden. 3 green pepper plants produced way more than we could use. Cucumber plants died early, only got a few of them. Zucchini outdid itself but died early as well. The weather here has been as good as I can remember.
Field crops, here, are amazing this year. We’re surrounded by corn and in 45 years of living here, I’ve never seen corn this good. Soybeans are being harvested, right now, and I’ve heard they are yielding very well, too. This year, we were in the right place at the right time.

A couple more weeks at most before we harvest the Honeynut squash.

A few more yellow squash but that’s it.
We had a great Kale harvest in July and August but it’s loaded with worms now.

Nice! We love blackberries. It was a good year for blackberries in west central MO. Harvested several gallons of black gold from our canes.

Didn't know anything about Prime-Ark Freedom variety. Just looked it up. "May produce a second crop in fall," the Gurney catalog states. :hattip:

Stanton,
My wife gets our strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry plants from Nourse Farms in Deerfield, MA - not too far from us. She also got her Asparagus roots from them. Can't stomach it myself but she and our daughters love it.

A nursery that far north (Maine) should have some pretty hardy stock. At least knowing it came from your region ensures it will have a chance to do well.

Thanks.
