My winter squash is blooming and starting to run. I've had to turn some vines to head out away from the garden. It wants to climb the fencing. :D



Tomatoes are sizing up a little since I pruned. Might even be ripening, they seem to have an orange yellow hue. String securing the plant to stakes. Beefstake.

My pickles passed the taste test today.My little grandson is a picky eater and it’s hard to get him to slow down and eat anything.Ate one pickle an had to  have another.That’s proof enough for me.

Looks great.  We should  have a batch of Nadapenos to pickle soon. I am so tired of watering. Every night for atleast an hour. I can't  keep enough water on everything and cukes are dying. Hopefully the drought will be over soon.

Yes, sweet peppers have been eaten here for 2 weeks now. Bell and Carmen Slenders. Have had to freeze some. Still waiting for a ripe tomato here, lots of good sized ones slowly turning that are 4" wide (Big Beef).

Been eating carrots and beets (and greens) now. Hoping for some string beans next weekend. I see some tiny beans on the green ones. But there's thousands of blossoms. They sure took a beating this spring with the cold and rain and that was June. :D

I've counted 12 squash, that will be squash, on the vines. I've got 6 foot vines running out into the grass now. My patch is small here, but it sure does put out squash. I never had frost last fall until I cleaned up the garden in Mid October. Never hit the squash or peppers.

Looks like more rain by Tuesday evening from thunder clappers.

Picked some peppers and onions today to cook up with sausages.


 

 


So many peppers this year. Some of my corn didn't pollinate well but it's still good


Had a BLT for lunch. Those Paul Robensens have the best flavor of any tomato


Poor eggplants are being destroyed by flea beetles and my strawberry plants, elderberry trees, pear trees, and apple trees are being eaten by this culprit.

Looky what I found!!  I gotta get this tested. 
When I tried to scoop into the dirt piled around the pond, the grass mats were so dense my little trip bucket just glanced off. After a year of mowing and irradication, Im able to dig into them  the big pile seems to be dense red-grey clay, but some of it was rich and black. My goal was to start pulling something onto all the exposed spruce roots on my trail there when I found I have something besides clay.

great garden soil.  may need to dream up a way to dredge the pond, as long as it will seal over.  I did that to my pond and found 55 full size coi, from the 12 farm store fish bait goldfish I had put in a few years earlier.  it was 30 feet round and silted to only a few feet deep.  I spent skid loader time and made a 30 by 60 rectangle with a slope at one end, and a 6-foot-deep end.  filled it half with water and turn it off to go to work.  tossed in the happy fish.  got home from work and it drained out and all the fish dead.  may need the clay to seal it back up.  put all the soil dredge on the garden.

Lots of organic in it. It might be a little sour from wet softwood forest, but not necessarily so. White cedar likes to grow on top of lime or calcareous rocks. I suspect that was the original forest around there before the tamarack.

I know right now I have a washtub of string beans ready to pick. :D Will have a small feed tomorrow for dinner along with the fresh carrots, and taters. Beets are almost 2" across now, not quite, but about ready to pickle. Today is a hamburger, from a local gal who raises beef. She's no youngster at 75 and farm tough. ;D  Still waiting for a tomato to ripen. ;)

Did up a 2 lb recipe of dill pickles this morning, water bath method.

Great looking onion harvest. Can't complain about that. ;) Tops are still green here and growing. The ones I started in the grow tent are growing just as fast as the sets I had. I won't pull mine until September.
