    Although some of our tomato plants are finishing up, we've had a really good year with them in 2014 best I can remember.
    We're pickling, salsaing, canning, souping, eating fresh,and marmalading

    Here are 2 I picked today they weighed in at 1lb each and was just enough to use as a side dish
    for a supper of 5 people 2 with larger than usual appetities.

    so envious I have about 50 plant and have gotten one yellow one I know in another few weeks I will be giving them away.. it stinks to walk out every day to hundreds of green ones taunting me..I did manage to pick enough beans to get 3 more pints and a quart... and only about half of them are producing..I would rather just do quarts but trying to keep on top of it

    I'm jealous of your beans, planted two rows, deer and goats ate up one
    the other not producing a lot
    I've only picked about 2 quarts I freeze what I get until I have enough to cook...lol
    Here's what we got today

    picked about 20 big zuchini on sunday, and put them in a wheel barrow with a free sign on it, They lasted until the afternoon. One guy asked if the wheel barrow was free.

    Picked more tomatoes. The big slicers are finally ripening up. Beans are blooming like crazy but the durn grasshoppers keep eating the baby beans. I hate to spray but I'm not sure what else to do to get rid of the buggers. Black eyed peas are blooming good too now but the bugs don't seem to bother them. Hmmm

    I don't pull much in the way of weeds, (so thankful for mulch!) I just wander around, knocking Japanese beetles into my trap. finally picking a few yellow squash, sugar snaps, lettuce, onions. Blueberries making a nice showing now, Purple raspberries look to be a promising crop.
