Our poor, neglected garden has been good to us this year! That bowl full of cherry and pear tomatoes are just from this morning's harvest. Tomorrow, there will be even more to pick, including our first ripe romas.
This morning, I also picked the last of the green beans, a few zucchini and a few cucumbers. I even picked our first ever lemon cucumber.
The corn is as tall as I am, but is still not doing much, I think it is destined to simply be a fall porch decoration. The storage onions will soon be ready to be picked and braided. The potato plants are up to my waist and flowering prettily. I have tons of winter squashes on the vines. I even have soft ball sized cantaloupe (more than we will ever be able to eat!) that are growing quickly and should be ready to harvest in a week or two.
