Canned up 12 pints of string beans. Going to pickle some next, mustard pickle. ;D






That corn didn't turn out so bad. ;)

Broccoli is acting kinda odd this year and another person asked me about it. 
I cut the first head off and years past at least one will start to sucker out and start to grow. Not this year. I have nothing on one plant. I cut the head off another plant tonight, we'll see how that goes.
Tomatoes are just coming now. I planted 3-4 different types of cukes. We had 3-4 pickings so far,
Dill is not doing nothing this year. Most years that stuff booms. Did not really get many plants that just came up all over the garden either this year.
Peppers seem kinda thin walled this year. i was laid up and Brenda took care of them. I guess they would rather have me take care of them.  :D

Oh yea. Dry.
But I have an over head sprinkler that has seen some heavy use. But that's not the same. 
Looks like Wed we will have a steady rain.
Peppers are grown in a small wind tunnel.  So we control the watering. Them things never seem to change, except for this year.

I agree fully cfarm , I’ve literally pumped millions of gallons this summer trying to keep plants going. It doesn’t even come close to a rain that Mother Nature lays down.

Use creek water, that's way better than well water on the garden. Like pouring on fertilizer and not ice cold. ;)

I only had to haul water one day this year, 100 gallons worth. Going to be wet here Wednesday afternoon into Friday.

I’ve been using pond and brook water mostly. What land doesn’t have pumpable water has been getting municipal, that gets spendy FAST. 
A year like this you use what’s available no matter what temperature it is. Desperate times call for desperate measures   :)

This has been the wettest summer I can remember here.A pretty good day up here at starvation camp.I gave my neighbor a couple dozen ears of corn and a couple pumpkins and she gave me a 18 carton of fresh eggs.Probably dig my potatoes in a week or two.Finally cooling down a little.Fall is on the way 🙂

Nice looking produce, good size ears of corn. 
Would’ve gladly sent some dry weather your way in exchange for a little rain. Prefer a dryer year for growing stuff but this year can go kick rocks for all I care. Been absolutely no rain to speak of for months. Trying to keep stuff growing well especially certain varieties of the sweet corn has been a challenge to say the least. Keeping the store stocked and market trucks full for the most part not exactly sure however.

Did 3 more pints of dill pickles. I cracked open a jar of earlier ones.....mmm my goodness, like eating candy. :D :D The cucumbers have not produced any surplus this year, which is unusual, due to a cold wet June where they struggled to get going. No scarcity of water for sure up this way. Rain and showers for 3 days now.

Im not blanching. Just freezing. My understanding of blanching is to maintain color over time, not so much taste. We do blanch our corn on the cob.

Made 5 quarts of apple sauce, probably 5 more today. So far I have had 15 zucchini off those two plants and many more babies on the way. I was getting blossom end rot until I added some of my powdered egg shells, and it went right away.

My flooded corn is really surprising me down there. I counted 30 ears on the stalks that made it so far,

Yes, like you say for the color.

30 ears if they mature is a good family corn boil cookout. ;D

Yep, blossom end rot is a sign of low calcium. Happens to maters and peppers to. In the grow tent I have to use calcium nitrate.

Tammy's pampered chef grinder blender turns my egg shells into smoke. Well, almost. It is so fine that when you open the bag, it smokes. It took no time for it to make a difference.
