Just a few of the pickin’s from the past week.
Clockwise from the top: Rocky Cucumbers, Okra, Red Beauty Peppers (yeah, picked too soon, gotta pay more attention to the chart), Sun Green Zucchini (big one was 3lbs., 6 oz!) and Gold Rush Zucchini.
Right now I’ve got 5 of each kind of zucchini on the counter. Thought I’d work my way thru them by making a double batch of zucchini bread. Boy was I suprised when I found out it only takes 3/4 of each kind to make 4 loaves of bread! AARGH!! Going to try to make another batch today but soon we’ll be giving them away left and right. (Wink, wink, Susan.)
I’ve got a “barrel” in the outside fridge that is holding 28 Rocky cukes, waiting for brine.
Other folks have said the squash beetles have already gotten their crops so we’re lucky.
Don’t have a counter that isn’t covered with cucumbers or zucchini…but lucky.
The tomatoes and peppers will be turning soon (yes, also late but I planted everything late) and then we’ll be buried with those.
GARDENING IS FUN!!!
