#162

Harvest these today and made this:

Into this:
(Used @IowaJer recipe further up on this thread. Changed it slightly to use what I had at hand)
Will report back on taste. :grin:

When you go out to check on the squash and return with 7 lbs :grinning:


#164

I planted mine late but they are growing now. Great pollination so \I should be getting a number of them. So old fashioned and delicious!


#165

When you procrastinate cutting back sweet potato vines, before and after :smile:


#166

Hire a groundhog!


#167

Did you make anything with the sweet potato leaves? They are edible.


#168

No. I’m not that hungry.


#169

the leaves are quite good rather rich smoky


#170

Greek Basil in our herb bed today.


#171

I went out to pick a few eggplants and came back with a half dozen, plus green beans, patty-pan squash, black tomatoes, pie pumpkins, and chili peppers!

I went out today to clean up the vegie beds a bit and pick what was available. :slight_smile:

I found a single patty-pan squash and a lot of Italian flat beans, and I also pulled the plants since they appear done for the season. Our brussels sprouts are just starting to get “up to size” so I picked a few – the plants are still going strong. The japanese black eggplant is growing and producing like it’s Spring. There was also a horde of “Highlander” chili peppers – the jury is still out on whether the plant will over-winter. No ripe tomatoes or pimento peppers today but each plant has a dozen. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll start working on the tubers.

I found one and only one small green patty pan yesterday; for the entire summer; I planted too late, but it was so good and sweet.?


#174

Most of us in the continental U.S. had an abbreviated growing season.


#175

Not here! My butternuts are starting new vines and looking like they want to set more fruits


#176

Same here. I’ve had some failures this year. Mostly from copius amounts of rain. But otherwise a pretty good productive year.


#177

Looks like a good year for turmeric !


Have not looked inside the pots yet , did not have to… but I bet they are full of roots !
Just bringing in , frost soon. Looks to be the best crop yet
