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!

Zucchini, yellow summer squash, arugula, kale*, radish leaves, squash blossoms, okra*, New Zealand spinach. All part of the night's stir fry.

I think the okra has been growing since April, so it's about time.

(Items marked with * were from conventional garden.)

Asparagus beans, Mediterranean cuke, cherry toms, and still have lettuce and a big green pepper waiting their turns. (Photo-bomb by George, who loves cherry toms, too.)

Underneath the tempeh and mushrooms, is spiralized zucchini spaghetti. I think it may actually make a better spaghetti substitute than spaghetti squash.

I agree!  Spaghetti squash is falling apart, or maybe I don’t do it right?  It just is so friable.  Zuke nods seem more stable but wetter....

Probably the largest single harvest I've ever had -- and plenty more where that came from. happy turtle 

Asparagus beans, lemon cuke, cherry toms, regular toms, kale, dried Limas, onion tops.

They're so prolific, and take up so little actual garden space, I don't see any reason to grow any other variety. alrighta

I may try these...the problem with what I have grown is that they get these giant bulges where the “seed” bean is and they get tough.  These look bulge-free.  Are they tender?

We try to pick them before they start to bulge, but if we miss a few, we just shell them and add the shelled beans to whatever dish we're making or keep them for seeds for next season. There's a canned veggie called "field peas & snaps" that gave us the idea.
