Walmart.ca says Bernardin canning lids are in stock, jars to.

And checked grocery store online and they have the pickling spice in stock.

July 26:

A hill of spuds I dug this afternoon. Two more weeks should make a difference in the size, but they are just right for me. A couple there like a fist. I have noticed 2 or 3 nubs on the roots for new taters on this hill and the previous. So definitely 2 weeks of life left in them. Tops still lots green, but getting more like vines, long. These usually die down a lot earlier than a russet when they ripen.

Move'n on.

Beats. I thinned them last weekend. The right hand side are the younger ones. The parsnips in the middle really jumped to.

Lettuce, dill weed and basal. We have lots of lettuce and another 10 heads in the main garden for later. I love dill in salad and sandwiches. The basal will go into this year's tomato sauce.

Your squash looks great. Mighty great!!
Cukes are just starting. Had maybe 10 tomatoes too. Corn has just started to tassel. 
Like I said I lost about 3 weeks right at the beginning of planting season.
Oh well, it will make it.
I have a row of basil about 30 feet long. We put ours under crop cover to keep the bugs from eating it before we do.  ;D

Cfarm, that's "a ton of basil" as the Aussies would say. ;D Yep, a lot of stuff I start now under the floating fabric. It kept the cucumber beetles off the squash, and when it got large enough I took it off. Then had a few beetles for awhile, but I kept picking them off and squishing them, now we have none at all. We had hardly any potato beetles, would see a couple once and awhile and they got squished along with their eggs to. I have learned that a well watered healthy garden keeps them bugs away when the plants are not under stress. The beets have no leaf spots or bug holes. :)

I think I have 10 squash plants and probably 40 squash on them. Gotta keep at the watering. :)

I'll be picking corn next weekend. The stalks are 7 feet tall now on the tallest ones, maybe a couple inches more. Them posts are 5 and 6 feet high above ground level, not in the ground very deep.;)

I planted a dozen pepper plants this spring (6-bell, 6-Jalapeno), I ended up pulling the bells out a couple of days ago!

They had peppers started (about the size of a large egg) and I noticed that the bottoms of them (about 4 inches from the ground) were turning tan/gray colored, so I just pulled them.

Were they starting to rot, or was this something of a type of disease to peppers?

The Jalapeno's are doing good!

Never seen that on my peppers. I've been growing them for 20 years. But I do trim mine up about 4-6 inches too. I want fruit not leaves. ;D  But maybe calcium?? I don't know. I do lay down a piece of black plastic for the peppers. Wet the ground first, don't need to make mud, but wet, lay down the black plastic. I put rocks around the edges to hold the plastic down. I make a small "X" in the plastic and put the peppers plants in the "X". I put more rocks between the plants so the plastic won't blow up in the air and cover the plants when I plant them. My plants get so big, I have to put tomatoes cages around them. The fruit will tip the plants over. I get big woody stalks too, as big as my thumb. The stalks cannot be composted because they are like a stick of wood. You are in the same climate as me, peppers need all the help, heat, that they can get. Helps out on weeds too. I do that with tomatoes too, But don't notice much of a yield difference with the plastic, just no weeds.
I am getting peppers now too.

The peppers I have was given to me, the size of a thumb in height, so they won't be anything. I never got none started this spring. I usually put an old black plastic pot, bottom cut out, put around to make heat and keep from falling over. But yeah, they need heat and water, lots for sure. ;D

Grinding up cukes, and veggies to, today for them pickles. :)

We grow a bunch of different peppers. There is a greenhouse about 15 minutes from us that grows a bunch of peppers. Most time we only get a couple of each kind. The ace we buy by the 6 pack and get about 5-6 of them. They produce right up until frost. Some of the peppers maybe small, golf ball size is Sept, but they get picked and put away. I like peppers plants big, when I plant them. A foot high, if I can find them. With the virus this year, one green house that we like did not open.  :( No foot high ones this year. I have even planted ones that had blossoms on the plants.

I usually plant jalapeno, but couldn't get any this year. We was shopping first of June. Green house lady said was sold out 2 weeks ago, not even a tomato. Said to myself, they are all dead now then, had frost first 3 days of June. Even in the 'big' city south of us. :D Got some tomatoes at the store, 2 given to us and I started a lot, even had to cull/weed out lots. Found one ripe on the vine this morning, I suspect lots by next weekend hopefully off some of them fat ones. ;D

Blossom end rot on tomato is typically calcium. Not sure on peppers.  

I learned this year that pepper and bean seeds dont last very long since ive had no sprouts from leftover seeds.  

Swiss chard on the other hand, im growing from 2013 seed.

My cucurbits were pretty sad, but a lot of troubleshooting later i figured out its a lack of bees.  Hand pollination got them pumping out cukes and hanging butternut.   My first red tomatoes are coming in now. Late start on those.  Kale broccoli arugula spinach pumpkins etc are all in for fall.
