We grow only one hybrid mater, the rest are open pollinated types. We like Burpee's oldest version of the hybrid beefsteaks called "Supersteak". This year we had some that were two hands to pick and hold plus the flavor is superb. Arkansas Traveler remains an heirloom favorite, but others try to change our minds. :D Our vines have now quit for the year as the unbelievable rainy period blighted them all, after a bumper crop before those rains. Gotta buy some at the farmers market later today.

Planning on some Lady Ashburnham or Lady Rose relish (without cauliflower) from the cucumbers, maybe this week. :)

We've made several batches of sweet relish with our veggies. Last year was other relishes called called Chow/chow & one made with green maters, celery, onions and no cukes my wifes family has made for a very long time. Bumper mater crop so we had to end up making more ketchup than most years. Lots different than the store version-we give lots away, plus a batch of Chili Sauce from my Mom's recipe-I love that stuff on a burger!
Were down to pumpkins and beans now & a few peppers. Heavy rains have most market maters gone as well but still they have sweet corn to sell.

We've definitely made chow chow in the past, it was a common preserve in these parts. Been freezing peppers most all summer to use on meat dishes.

We don't have the tomatoes this year, low on pollinators. Although this past week I saw some European honey bees working some wild flowers. I have no idea who has them, has to be the neighbor. I might also have a nest of them again in the maple tree, I'm not sure on that yet. I don't see any paper nest like wasps build. But I see traffic going in and out of the main trunk.

We've harvested the onions now. I'd say we've harvested 80 lbs. Those sacks are 10 lb'ers. Still drying. Been a great year for onions, I especially like the ones I started from seed to transplant, worked out very well. Lots of 1 lb onions. ;D

Peppers, peppers, and more peppers. I must have over 100 pounds of peppers

Emerald giant stuffers


Stuffed giant peppers. That's my wife's jumbo baking dish

 


Anaheim Chilies for the freezer
 


My wife loves the teddy bear sunflowers and cuts them for the house
 


Pickled sweet peppers
 


Quartered mixed red heirloom tomatoes
 


Freezer peppers. We chop them and freeze.
 


Black panther edamame (very nutty flavor. Steam them and they have the flavor of boiled peanuts)
 


Another basket of peppers. Jimmy Nardelio pimento, Ashe Pimento, Habanadas, Red Banana, California Wonder
 


Thick wall Di Cuneo peppers for the freezer. Make awesome small stuffed peppers in the winter.
 


San Marzano plum tomatoes. 
 


Pickled sweet onions. One regular and the other bread and butter onions.
 

 

Have about 30 pounds of ajvarski peppers to pick, roast, and can tomorrow. Never had so many peppers. Probably over 100 pounds from a couple plants. They really liked the hot dry weather and being watered everyday. Next week digging the sweet potatoes, beets, and carrots. Have to cure the sweets in the grow tent again. Last years got soo sweet from the cure.

You got the mother lode there on the sweet potatoes, those look great.

Peppers, I love peppers, we've got lots frozen to do for an entire year and then some. But no 100 lbs, I'd never eat that many in 10 years. :D Have only done stuffed peppers a couple of times, they are great, but usually just prefer them in the cooking of meat or on sandwiches. I do have 4 cans of jalapeno rings for evening sandwiches during the winter. Peppers are still producing here, but right now using them fresh as the need arises, no more preserving. You've got lots of eat'n to do. ;D

Finally done with peppers. Just finished canning the Ajvarskis

Finally the end is in sight




Some guy by the name of Neilson keeps sending me cash in the mail. Got another $5 bill just for filling out a simple form saying Newsmax is the only channel we watch anymore. He is helping me cover the cost of inflation  :o

Picked the squash this morning, had 6 left, used 2 already before today. Largest was 7 lb this year. Not as great a harvest as last two years, but don't want a mountain of squash anyway. Low pollination this year for lack of bees, cold very wet June gave them a slow start. Be making another squash pie soon.

Well another season is over. Almost all cleaned up and the garlic is in. Found a giant beet when I pulled the last of them and had to try cooking it to find out if it was actually  edible 

Root cellar  is packed full and ready for some rest after finishing cleaning up the leaves. Fun to watch  everyone's progress in threads like this.

Oh yeah, them big ones are edible for sure. But take forever to cook'm. My cousins brought mother some 3 or 4 lbers a couple years ago. :D They cooked and made good pickles, but for ever to cook up. ;)
 
Cleaned out the gardens here a month ago. If only summer was longer, a barrel full of green tomatoes got mulched into the garden. ;D
