Mediterranean cukes, asparagus beans, icicle radishes (only 3 Sad ), and the cherry tomatoes are back in business Cool . Sadly, the figs are finished for this year. We never get enough of them, but we're starting 3 more trees. Maybe next year we can start canning again.

Everything sounds delicious!

We had BLTs with tomatoes from the garden!  Yum!  And sautéed the eggplant with garlic and onions with a bit of Parmesan!

The second planting of bush beans are starting to come in now. Picked first harvest today, and there should be 3 or 4 more before frost kills them.

A sliced up cuke and garlic and onion and many Sunsweet cherry tomatoes in a sloppy joe mix!  Delish!  Oh, and some dills that didn’t seal that have been in the fridge for about a month and a half!

Mediterranean, similar to Armenian. These are our all-time faves. They get huge. The plants are very prolific. They laugh at our heat. The skins are thin, so we eat them skins on. The texture is very tight -- almost like zucchini. The flavor is mild. They're burpless. AND they're almost fluted in shape. Here -- I'll go get a slice for a snack and take pic.

Once they get started, they grow fast -- like a zuke -- and can get almost as big. affraid

Cherry tomatoes in a chickpea salad; Blue coco beans and Butternut Squash Soup.  I had a bumper crop of Bush Butternut's this year. We've moved from a house into an apartment and I know they won't last as long as they do in a basement so I'm making soup and I think I will be freezing some as well.

Arugula (4 or 5 leaves) to go with the salad. And charcoal grilled summer squash. Anyone else like grilled squash slices? Of course, after you have coated it with olive oil, season-salted it, and grilled it, it probably doesn't count as health food any more ...

We love all kinds of grilled veggies. What a surprise the first time. I thought they'd be terrible -- just taste like burnt food. Boy, was I wrong! alrighta

The flowers only bloom for a day. Once the squash is done with them, they're great as food themselves. You can find recipes online for battered and fried blossoms, but that's a bit of work and probably not that healthy.

Kale, tomatoes, asparagus beans, and so many Mediterranean cukes we're feeding some to the deer. Rolling Eyes Also, got the last of the zukes from the in-laws, so I'll be making one last batch of zucchini bread. I love you

Chowing down on Kale, tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, chives, eggplants, Chard, bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers. I have a few clusters of grapes left on the vines, and the apples are starting to fall and the onions are up for long term storage.

Headed up broccoli ( calabreese?) and caterpillars .. well we don't think we ate any but might have .   When we stood the cut florets in heavily salted water for an hour several came to the surface ..this is despite me giving them a serious quick eyeballing when I cut them this afternoon .
 
   The funny thing is Alison found one more as she  cleaned up the stalks  and then after it was lightly boiled found another three in the pan water , one being a perfect monster 2 inches long and boiled white  . 

 Happily we had it with thin strips of asparagus done in a white garlic sauce with smoked salmon flakes , so if there were any left behind they were well disguised and very tasty .
 We also had 1/3 of one of our main crop monster carrots and a boiled in heavily salted water beetroot from the garden between the three of us .

This morning I decided to pull up that worthless volunteer cuke on the kitchen balcony, and plant radishes in the container. When I lifted the vine to cut its throat, it seemed heavy??? Here's what I found hanging from it.

Since it's a volunteer from the grocery store -- by way of the compost heap -- I don't know the variety, but it's nice and big, mild and crunchy. Best surprise of the day. happy turtle

Nothing yet from my garden, but made 3 quarts of applesauce from gifted apples!  A nice variety, not sprayed, lots of carve outs and several worms!  But lovely end product, and my first ever!

Fresh Lima beans from the garden and ham from the store.

Made an interesting discovery -- fresh ones aren't enough better than dried to be worth the additional work. I'm going to do a little more research, but I think the result will be to let all the rest dry on the vine. They're so easy to pick and process that way. Razz

That is what I also found out.  A pain to determine when to harvest the fresh ones and a pain to shell them.  We finally gave up trying for fresh and let them dry on the vine.  We did have a problem with some of them opening and spilling the dried bean on the ground.

I had a few pop open and explode like little pinatas while I was picking them. Then I had to search the ground for the "spilled beans." Who says Mother Nature has no sense of humor? lol!
