NICE haul, JAM23!  I’m jealous as my carrots did not deliver.  I have a fall crop goin in this weekend.  Nothing like garden fresh carrots!

Just spent several hours in the garden, mostly harvesting stuff!  Got my first few large tomatoes—BLT in my near future!  Also got what is probably the last summer squash (yellow Sunburst patty pan) as the squirrels seem to be chewing the base off (?).  Also a bunch of cherry maters.  

Out back, got a big haul of Dragon Tongue beans, lots of cucumbers, a few peppers, and my first 4 cobs of Sugar Buns sweet corn!  

Game changer!  2 of the cobs had been an early snack from the top by my spoiled squirrels, but I took the kernels off the cobs and microwaved it for a little over a minute—butter, S&P—magic!  Lunch!

This is my first time growing Walman's Green Leaf Lettuce, but so far I am loving it.  It has large crisp leaves, and is very productive. The seed package says, "This loose-leaf lettuce has large, wavy leaves. The light green frilled leaves produce good yields on cold-tolerant plants, so it is an excellent lettuce variety for northern areas."

This is the second picking of this planting. They are large palm-sized leaves, and they have a sweet delicious flavor. Since the seed packages says they are cold-tolerant I am hoping they will continue well past the first frost.

It appears that the squash blooms will not have any problem getting pollinated.

Watered containers.   They were dry!  There are some tomatoes to pick!  And peppers, not sure what I want to do with the peppers.  

Might can some, which I have only done once with jalapeños!

Oh yeah m my summer squash is done.   Bummed out but it’s more than I got last year!

We'll be dicing Bell Peppers today and putting them in the freezer to have for the coming winter's meals.  This has been one of the most productive years ever for peppers. And squash, and tomatoes, and chard, and kale, and cucumbers, and.....  I guess I should just say it has been a very productive garden this year.  Very Happy

Amazing OhioGardener! So happy for you! My pole beans are now starting to really get productive, as well as, my medium sized tomatoes and summer squash. I continue to have a steady harvest of tomatillos and hot peppers. As usual I have had some successes and some learning experiences this season, but overall more successes which I am grateful for. Not bad for my little garden space considering I'm still pretty new to gardening. 

Getting some rain here today (thankfully) so not much opportunity to get outside in the garden.

Cleaned off the second planting of bush beans, and refreshed the bed with compost. Not sure what will be planted in the bed yet, but I'm sure there will be some winter carrots, and maybe some more spinach. The Blue Lake Pole Beans on the arbor are starting to form flowers, so it won't be long before we have more beans to harvest.

Mulched all of the Rhubarb plants with wheat straw to get them ready for winter. One of the plants was covered with Virginia Tiger Moth caterpillars that were eating holes in the leaves, so I sprayed the leaves with Bt. Of course, a half hour later a heavy thunderstorm appeared and the Bt would have been washed off. Mad

We got about an inch of rain here yesterday too, so that made today easier for me!  I an gonna follow OGs lead and mulch my rhubarb, I also need to stake up some of the sunflowers as the squirrels think they are their personal gyms with a snack bar too!  One big branched flower is on the ground.  Rolling Eyes

Also need to plant some things for fall in the 48 inch fire ring—to be determined!  

There are some tomatoes ready to be picked too!  And I’m sure there are some cucumbers out there!  Sweet corn is over, so much chop that off.  That bed is over, falling apart.

Got into the garden yesterday and did some pruning and found a few Italian zucchini, lemon squash, and white patty pans waiting for me, so we had a few of them for dinner. Tomatillos seem to be winding down a bit and I am getting fewer of these every other day or so. Tomatoes, pole beans and hot peppers still doing well. I have 8 butternut squash that I am hoping I can protect until they are ready to harvest. I have never grown these before and I am super excited about them! 

The fall radishes I planted have popped up but the spinach that planted at the same time is not. So, not sure what happened there. I estimate about 35-40 days left until our first frost, so I think it's too late to try and plant more spinach.

Fall sugar snap peas are getting tall!

Remember, Spinach is frost hardy, and can tolerate temps as low at 20ºF. So, it may not be too late to start some for fall.

Garden seems to be at peak production right now.  Got 2" of rain in the last 2 days, so that helped, too.

I love all the colorful tomatoes OhioGardener! We picked up an inch and a half of rain yesterday. This is what I picked from our garden today! I need to thin my fall radishes this weekend and blanch and freeze some kale (although I do not have nearly as much kale as you do OhioGardener!).

I picked probably 10 pounds of tomatoes…Brandywine and Pineapple, and some Sungold cherries.  Just had a BLT…yum!  I think I will have to make some sauce.  No way—all hit at once.  

Just came in and got a few cucumbers, my first Ginkaku melons, one Sakatas Sweet, some Dragon tongue beans, and it looks like the peppers can be picked and pickled next weekend.  Lots of Jalapeños—I love them!  

Lots of blooms on my Ping Tung eggplant—it will happen but just in time!  Only one of my 10 sugar snaps made it—got eaten because they were sprouted when I planted them….bummer.  

Also looks like I can pull the rest of the red onions.  I will see tomorrow.

Back on Aug 13th I posted the above about a new lettuce, Walman's Green Leaf, that I was growing for the first time. A beautiful lettuce with really sweet leaves.  Unfortunately, although the lettuce is advertised as cold tolerant, it does like the hot weather we've been having.  Now, just two weeks after I posted that, the lettuce has already started going to seed due our continued hot weather. So, when the weather cools down I'll have to try that lettuce again.
