    Thanks all SLC peeps for the tomato info - good to know we are all in the same boat. Except SFB, can someone DM me his addy so I can steal some fresh tomatoes?

    A ton of raspberries have come, lots a jam already made. and a few cucumbers have been pickled and of course zucchini's have come.

    But I want the damn tomatoes now.

    As excited as I get about the garden in general, nothing beats the tomatoes when they start popping. This year I'm jonesing bad with only 1 or 2 cherries to eat per day. Although I do enjoy going out every morning to pick a couple of Hungarian wax peppers and frying them in my eggs.

    ^^ Yes guy! Been making amazing omelet's lately with those and banana peppers, along with some (meagre) tomatoes and green onions, all freshly picked. A bit of salsa verde on the side and it's my new favourite summer breakfast.

    Celery! What the slugs left us was really good. Sweet and not tough.

    I don't have the space to trench them properly so I cheat by 'blanching' them by wrapping the stalks in cardboard for a couple weeks before harvesting. I have tried self-blanching verities but found they produce really thin stalks. Pretty decent in salads but it's nice to get the big meaty stalks.

    I should try some celery some time... at one time Arvada (not too far away) was known as the “Celery Capital of the World” - so it must grow OK 'round these parts.

    The seeds are probably the smallest thing's you'll ever handle but beyond that (and the fact that they're slug magnets) they're pretty easy to grow. Very attractive looking and don't require full sun either.

    Presenting the chode-eist okra I've ever seen. This fucker is the last survivor of the 5 I started from seeds, they all got munched when I planted them outside, but this one seemed like it had a little leaf left. So here's my Okra haul for the year. Click image for larger version.

    Climbing zucchini are ~8ft tall and still trying to climb, they took a while to get really growing so I let my guard down. Had to add lots of string to keep them upright. Click image for larger version.

    Anyone know what bug this is? I saw it digging the hole in the wood, it's about 1/4" and it has been cutting leaves to close the tunnel. Click image for larger version.

    Sorry about your okra. Ours are starting to hit their stride, finally, and the first cherry tomatoes are arriving.

    I guess you can call this a garden on a large scale - onions harvested and drying in my back field.

    still pumpin out broc and squash maters n cukes


    okra and eggplants were slow this season but coming along

    always had good luck with maine seed taters but an underwhelming harvest so far this year put em in a new spot
    hoping the rest in the old spots produce more
    not sure if this will work

    even if it dont tater produce the maters are some of the tastiest weve grown
    our apple trees are on a yearly feast or famine and overloaded to the point of branch snapping

    Sorry about the orientation, not sure what to do about it.

    Garden 2022

    Anyone have a good quick pickle recipe for wax beans? I have a serious amount, but I’m leaving for a trip in a few days and no time to do a full dilly bean canning operation….

    I just ripped out all sortsa stuff, most of the tomatoes cuz they were dead and flopped over and a bunch of flowers. Gonna give some other stuff some room but I think the celery and melon plants (that have no melons on them) that I've been leaving for ground cover are coming out later. The entire berry patch is nearly dead. The blueberries and raspberries are done for and the blackberry is a maybe for regen next year. Strangely the stuff in hanging baskets is doing pretty well. This was an almost totally wasted year other than early beans and some herbs but I guess when you're down over 20" of rainfall in 9 months that's to be expected. Working on a new, climate change induced, strategy for next year.

    I picked my first large tomato yesterday. It needs another day on the counter. They won't ripen this year. I've had cherry tomatoes for about two weeks. However they consist of a sweet 100 and some kind of pear shaped grape tomato in a 5 gallon bucket. Low yield. I didn't give em enough fertilizer. The theory was the bucket would confine the 100 and keep it from doing it's jungle thing. I was too successful. Next year the bucket gets filled with all compost. Take that you sweet 100 fucker. The weather has been weird, normally my big tomatoes are ripe by 1st week of August. Next year I'm planting earlier and putting tents over them.

    Exact opposite at the house, we're drowning in peppers and eggplants but so far haven't eaten a single large tomato, only cherries. There was a nice almost ripe big guy on one of the plants that was a bit outside of the cage, I turned around and it was in the dog's mouth...
