Picked this tonight...wow!  Apparently I planted my pole beans too close together.  Gave my friend 3# of beans, a couple pounds of cukes and some peppers...

Just all happening RIGHT NOW!!!

Niiiiice!

My beans are crazy this year, too...especially the bush beans.  They keep giving and giving...most unlike bush beans.  Definitely a first in my garden. 

What makes you think you planted the pole beans too close together?

I can’t really get to them like I should be able too, just really dense.  I have given a ton away.  Hopefully the bush beans will have a chance to give me a few batches before the F word hits!  I do love beans.  Will probably pickle some, and Blanche and freeze some as well.

I can't believe that we are still picking leaf lettuce from the gardens this late in the season. Apparently because we have had a wet, cool summer the lettuce (Black Seeded Simpson) has not yet bolted to seed and is still producing a lot of fresh lettuce for our salads.

The Swiss Chard is also producing heavily with the cooler weather. Yesterday we harvested not only the lettuce and chard, but also kale, mizuna, tomatoes, bell peppers, banana peppers, Jalapeño peppers, and brussels sprouts.

Last evening, though, I planted a new flat of lettuce and spinach seeds indoors to put out into the garden beds for the fall harvest. I will soon be cutting off the bush bean plants at the ground level, and will have space for the lettuce and spinach where they were - the beans put nitrogen in the soil, which the lettuce & spinach will appreciate.

Interesting, OG, my lettuces bolted about a month ago.  I replaced them with some seedlings started inside.  Hopefully, I can get some end of season salads!  Swiss chard is always a good producer!

I find it very interesting how gardening differs in different Regions and micro-climates.

I agree, sanderson!  

I still have not been out to the garden since my return from vacation; it is soooo hot and miserable.  Maybe I will get out there later to at least get the tomatoes.  My lack of picking the pole beans will probably shut them down.  Oh well.  

I am a wimp when it some to deep summer temps/conditions.  Rolling Eyes

Heat is bad enough. The 1-3 days of humidity floors me. I can't imagine days and days of it. Shocked

It’s not so fun, for sure!  

Just waded out to the SFG....underwater.  Stuff looking pretty decent, need to pick eggplants, maters, beans of both types!  Peppers also ready at various colors.  Lettuces looking good, and need to thin the French Breakfast radishes.  Just really wet back there!  Will try tomorrow.   Annex is done, need to pick and clean up.

So...there are some lovely wax beans out there waiting for me to pick!  Cherokee wax. And some eggplants, etc.  

Still wet.  Will go out tomorrow AM and get stuff as much as I can!  Then I think some frozen beans, canned pickled beans and peppers, and maybe canned hot pickled beans might be on the launching pad!
