No peppers here yet. Starting to worry about them. I don't think I've seen a bloom either.  My tomatilla is taking over.  Peas are done, but I started more.  I got 2 meals worth of my 18 green bean plants in the freezer.  

Gotten 4 nice size zucchini - I'm most happy about that. I've never had success before and felt horrible because - anyone can grow a ton of zucchini, right?

Not seeing spaghetti squash or melons.  I have gotten a few pickle cucumbers. Kids eat them before they can be pickled.  

Tomatoes are still green. Got one radish, which I grow for the tortoise, but moth caterpillars got the leaves. I've had introductions to 3 mean bugs now.   

It's so so hot here in PA, I haven't been outside much at all.  Also have frozen shoulder and a skin reaction to something all over.

The first Chocolate Bell Pepper today. So sweet, and a colorful addition to the salad.

Still picking green beans every 3 days. This batch will be canned as Spicy Pickled Beans.  The tomatoes are also coming in daily now.

Wow!  It’s hitting for us in the breadbasket!  Love the stories/pics!  

I pulled all my onions (Candy) they looked pretty good—curing in the garage.  Pulled a carrot, a beet, a few peppers, a few Dragon Tongue beans and my first 2 big maters.  

My big maters had blossom end rot (BER) really bad this year, so I picked these two Cherokee Purple knowing there was a small end problem..Ate one, it was fine! 

Also picked a half dozen Ping Tung eggplant, and a mess of cukes!  

Summer!

This morning we picked just over a half bushel of tomatoes, mostly Rutgers and some Yellow Brandywine. They're heading down to the food pantry for this afternoon's distribution. Picked a two-gallon bowl full of Banana Peppers. Will be having a stuffed Banana Pepper casserole for dinner this evening.  Cut off all of the Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce at the soil level, and salvaged as many leaves as possible. They were starting to bolt to seed.

Just a small potpourri of vegetables this morning between rains. Some Jalapenos (for poppers), tomatoes, and green & chocolate bell peppers. Noticed I have more green beans to pick after they dry out, and tomorrow there will be summer squash to pick.

Just in time for Halloween:

What Have You Picked From Your Garden Today - Page 7 TUqmzlL

It's hard to see, but there's 6 tomato worms there. There were another four that were discarded before I thought of a photo-roundup.

My daughter and I have been tomato worm hunting a couple nights a week. Using this UV flashlight, they glow in the dark making them easy to find.

Mark, next year when you plant your tomato plants, consider introducing some Braconid Wasp egg cases to your gardens. This parasitic wasp will pursue the tomato hornworm and lay its eggs in the caterpillar.  If you see a caterpillar with white oblong obtrusions on it, leave it alone - those are the cocoons of the Braconid Wasp, and you want them to continue hatching into more adults to kill more hornworms.

A tomato hornworm that looks like the picture below is already disabled from eating and will just produce more beneficial wasps for your garden.

I couldn't find any place on-line selling these. I'm guessing that it would be overkill (pun) for my little plots. Plus, the wasps would probably take off for better eating elsewhere. I've never seen any parasitized Hornworms. They're scary enough without parasites ;-) Apparently there are 1000s of Braconid species, and they'll take down just about any caterpillar including the cabbage looper.

The Agribon has been working really well on two of my SFG's. It seems to work better than tulle. I'm thinking baby insects can get through the tulle. If I could build my PVC cages two feet higher, than I think it could cover tomato plants as well.

I have only ever seen one parasitized hornworm, and I let it be.  It had white thingies standing all over it’s back, just like the pictures.

Picked from one square, this AM. Still having occasional bug bites. I'm trying to pick the leaves before they become longer than 6". It's surprising how they can sneak up on you.

What Have You Picked From Your Garden Today - Page 7 Empty Celeriac, the slow potato that tastes like celery

Post  markqz 1/31/2021, 3:09 pm

I finally harvested one of the remaining, and larger celeriac's :

What Have You Picked From Your Garden Today - Page 7 MoyU2qP

On one hand, it's probably been growing for more than a year. On the other hand, it didn't take a lot of maintenance. I will probably need the band-saw to trim it for cooking. The last time I cooked up celeriac, the comment was made that it tasted like potato, with a slight celery flavor. Along the way, it also provided lots of celery-like leaves to add flavor to stir fry. Then again, the comment was also made that we have other, better, leaves to use in stir fry.

I'm thinking that if I could get them to grow in the front yard (my last attempt failed) that they would provide year-long greenery with occasional produce.

Today, between snow squalls, I picked the leaf lettuce, spinach, and radishes from the cold frame. We'll have a fresh salad and a side dish of greens for dinner this evening.
