I am jealous of you gardeners farther south!!! I am finishing up the peas and eating greens......that's it. Beans are in blossom, as are most other things. This has been an exceedingly slow season here.

Dug up the potatoes a while ago. Have had a few ripe tomatoes but they aren't ripening too fast. We need more sun and less rain! Cucumbers are doing great and I have been picking beans. The green peppers are producing like crazy. They're wearing me out picking them! I have a little peach tree that produced the most significant amount this year than any year previous. Picked them today before the squirrels got them all. I'm starting to hate squirrels! :)

Well, I am now getting a few cukes as well with many more following behind, as I replanted quite a few. I planted a new variety of southern pea this year that is just starting to bloom. These are called, Whipporwill Peas. They have the prettiest bright purple blossom. I can't wait to taste them. We also have lots of watermelons coming on the vine. the pumpkins are growing slowly. I also got my first ear of corn. My corn has done some very wierd things this year. I am starting to wonder how much I will actually get.

Hi--well I"m picking green beans,tomatoes, several different kind of peppers, green and hot ones, green onions, still getting all kinds of lettuce out of one of the raised beds. We dug some of our potatoes both red and white and we are getting ready to dig the rest of them this week. Our big onions that we braid and hang up to use this winter are ready to be harvested also. Squash , several kinds and corn are about ready . Our cukes and okra will be ready before long also. I love to hear what everyone is picking in other areas of the country. Our farm is in Southwest Missouri Lauraleah

Wow you are not to far from my area of the Country. I live near Ada Oklahoma, in just about the center of the state. Today i am sheeling Purple Hulls. I also went down today and bought a few peaches at the fruit stand a ways from me. They wanted $48.00 a bushel for peaches today. I explained to the man that I was canning and there was absolutely no way I could afford $48.00 a Bushel. He told me to come back by in a day or two and they could sell me over-ripes cheap. I was happy as over-ripes translates here into not as hard as a rock!

we put up the corn a couple of weeks ago. The beans and peas are about dried up. We've enjoyed tomatoes, lots of squash, a few cucumbers and cantelope. Yesterday, we picked pumpkins, banana squash, butternut, spaghetti squash, and a few watermelons. We're almost done for this garden, and starting to think about fall.
