Without a working kitchen, I have had to stash things where there is room.  Some of the soft-bodied harvest is going bad.   Sad  Today I plan to prep foods for eating or storage.  The tile work may start tomorrow and I'm getting tired (and unhealthy) eating only take out.

Reminds me of my mother.  She used to store dirty pots and pans in the oven.  But she did not have the excuse of a non working kitchen, she just had too many kids.

Somebody called this "the year of the cucumber." I think she was right. I found this one where I didn't expect it, so it didn't get picked when it was young and tender. I hope it's still good.

That’s the end of the squash and melons, taters, carrots and small orange beets.  And Yukon Gold potatoes

I don't know how our fore-mothers did it. My grandma had 6 children and fed the farm workers their mid day meal.

This is the first year that my okra have ever produced enough to even make a meal.  Yes, I am freezing the okra using different methods to test what works best - Cut then frozen; cut, breaded and frozen; frozen whole; blanched and frozen whole; using egg as breading binder; using buttermilk as breading binder; etc.  Will have to figure out what is best.

Egad, how tall are those? My tallest, growing since March and not yielding anything is maybe 3 feet tall. Not using SFG, though. Maybe next year.

Here's my first full SFG harvested plant (planted 8/17). Yes, I know -- I was too impatient. I should have waited at least 30 days. But the top of the radish promised something bigger underneath.

Monthly Avatar: September, Show Off Your Garden Harvest! - Page 5 20190911

Oh well, at least the top should be useful in stir fry.

In my defense, there was a zucchini leaf preventing me from getting a good view ;-)

So, any gardening tips on how to tell when a radish is really ready? Xray glasses, perhaps?

Thanks!

Congratulations!

Radishes push upwards and show their shoulders. Gently feel around the radish to feel the diameter.

Nice radish!  Yeah, you can grope, but some of the shapes are harder than others!  You will get the hang of it!
