I've already pulled out my 2 bean crops & planted a last plot of corn. I also pulled up my zucchini (I don't know why I insist on planting it, we only eat a very small bit of it grilled. I guess it's the instant gratification of something growing). I've cut my yellow squash back some since it was taking over & I'm still harvesting from it. I've had a steady supply of cucumbers - Boston Pickling & Homemade Pickles & made a few jars of pickles. They didn't really do well - they shriveled really bad after cooling, but I'll keep trying.
I am well pleased with my tomatoes - I started all of them from seed, as well as all my pepper plants. These are German pink tomatoes.
These are a new variety for me - Orange Banana.
My hollyhock's were beautiful until the latest storm blew them down flat. They were from a mixed packet & had all colors imaginable, singles and doubles. You can see the damage from the Japanese beetles on the Amaranth leaves below the blossom.
My peppers are blooming like mad, but this sweet banana is the only one that has any actual fruit on it. My youngest granddaughter loves my chow chow, which is actually a pepper relish without any cabbage, & eats it with a spoon right out of the jar & we are completely out, so I planted a LOT of peppers, sweet & hot.
Here is the garlic harvest. I thought it was a little early to be ready, but the tops had dried up & fallen over so we dug it up. It's garlic from the grocery store.
Purple Cleome, one of my favorite plants.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Mayfield Dairy cow, I think her name is Maggie, but not sure.
