    ^^^You sure they’re getting enough water? If you have good drainage around them, soak the fuck out of the soil; they’ll be fine. It takes a lot of water to create cukes and melons.

    Not totally sure but I water them twice a day a lot of days. They're in containers so the lower layer of soil stays moist all the time.

    I pulled the potatoes today because a few were starting to work their way out of the soil. Unfortunately there were only 3 in total but the root ball was super tight so I loosened it up, dumped a bunch of fertilizer in the hole and mixed it up then put the plant back in the ground with one mini potato on it. Maybe that turns into next years crop from that container. It's time to pull a bunch of lettuce, good thing I put more in a few weeks ago so it's ready in 3 or 4 weeks.

    My pumpkins were kicking ass until they weren’t. Took me a few days to figure out I’d been had by squash bugs, by that time it was too late for one of my two plants,

    Still got two decent pumpkins off of it and the other plant has a few more. Damn bugs got to my beans, squash, watermelons, and one of my cucumbers. Used the Sevin dust and seemed to have stopped the march of them, but everything they infested has seemed to have paused growing.

    Dug out another 4x4 area and timbered it in, just the crappy soil my yard came with for now, next year I plan on bringing in yards of compost. Planted another gang of lettuce, cucumbers and onions. The radishes and peas I planted a few weeks ago are doing quite well.

    This is the current haul we a couple time a weeks for tomatoes and weekly for the peaches. MsB andI have been canning furiously and making all kinds of preserves. I came back from the Uintas around 10:30P Sat night to find about 40 lbs of reduced tomato sauce she hadn't been able to can before going to work. I was still up at 1AM boiling jars...

    Beans are still producing. Cucs are out of control as usual and I never managed to pick more than a few small enough to pickle as gherkins. Tomatillos are a couple weeks out and we'll drown in salsa. I ate an amazing green cantaloupe I don't even remember planting, thought it was a honeydew. It's a great year for peppers and we've canned a bunch of ajvarski dips and pickled shishitos:

    Ms B and I are leaving for France for a couple weeks and had to beg/bribe/threaten friends to ensure there we would someone picking stuff at least every other day as opposed to letting it rot on the plants. Oh no, fresh veggies to pick, life's so hard...

    Not enough lettuce for a ham sammitch this year.

    is that just regular potting soil you have the potatoes in?

    ETA: raked in a few lettuce seeds yesterday. Fall growing season rarely works out well here. We tend to go from a day with a high of 90 to frost in about a week, but I give it a go every year, and it works out every now and then.

    Here's something to do with all that extra zucchini you probably have. Get your chocolate fix and add some fiber to your diet at the same time:

    I have a neighbors cat using my yard (xeriscape mulch) as a litter box. Fortunately not my garden (yet) but posting here as it’s under a huge tree. Wondering if I can use bleach to neutralize the odor? It’s where I park and don’t want the smells getting in my camper. Don’t want to kill the tree though. I read online a little might actually be good but no quantities given. Also figure the bleach smell might be a deterrent?

    I use this in my horse stalls. It's mainly for ammonia but it might work. If you have a feed store close by check there for availability.

    Roasted Plums with Dried Cherries and Almonds
    SERVES 4 TO 6



    Roasted fruit can easily become colorless and mushy or burned and crunchy without a correct method. By starting our fruit over direct heat we were able to evaporate some of the juices released by the fruit that would otherwise get in the way of proper caramelization. Finishing the fruit in the oven allows the ambient heat to cook through the fruit while the fruit continues to darken in color.





    INGREDIENTS

    2 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter
    4 ripe but firm plums (4 to 6 ounces each), halved and pitted
    1 ¼ cups dry white wine
    ½ cup dried cherries
    ⅓ cup (2 1/3 ounces) sugar
    ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ⅛ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    ⅓ cup sliced almonds, toasted


    INSTRUCTIONS


    This recipe works equally well with red or black plums. The fruit can be served as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of plain Greek yogurt.

    1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Melt 1½ tablespoons butter in ovensafe 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Place plum halves, cut side down, in skillet. Cook, without moving them, until plums are just beginning to brown, about 3 minutes.

    2. Transfer skillet to oven and roast plums for 5 minutes. Using tongs, flip plums and continue to roast until fork easily pierces fruit, about 5 minutes longer (skillet handle will be hot).

    3. Using tongs, transfer plums to platter. Return skillet to medium-high heat and add wine, cherries, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Bring to vigorous simmer, whisking to scrape up any browned bits. Cook until sauce is reduced and has consistency of maple syrup, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in lemon juice.

    4. Pour sauce over plums, sprinkle with almonds, and serve.

    I'll admit it - I put him him there myself. He was motionless in the street as I walked home. Put him in a few shots then in a plate with some sugar water, hoping to revive him. The cat ate him.
