Your tomatoes are beautiful. In our drought I only had a few little ones mature. And that clove of garlic is gigantic!
My neighbor planted a whole field of turnip greens for people to come help themselves. They are sooooo good.
I just picked my 8th grocery bag of them.... for others, this is. I go out in the early morning and get some for a smoothie. People think I'm certifiable!
But I've gone full-Henry now. They'll have to deal with it.
I take a pear off my tree, with a cutie orange and a bunch of greens and some (filtered) water - blend it - YUM!
*I hope they don't send the white coats!
I also planted my garlic... and got a huge blister on my palm which popped before I even knew it was there. It's cramped my style, however the garlic (from the lady who since has died), is in the ground. Hopefully next springs garlic will be part of her legacy.
Italian people really love garlic sooo much. It's like the best gift ever.
End of season. Stuffed tons of these and gave away three bags to neighbors... still have work to do!
Those peppers look good. I missed what kind they are. I planted one banana pepper plant this year and the cherry tomato plant just about drowned it out but I got a few off it.
My tomatoes did really well this year. I planted more plum tomatoes than other kinds. I made some sauce. I also love to dehydrate them. I am gathering the last ones of all of them, some each day, and I’ll roast them on the grill with garlic and some of the one onion I grew, lol, until I have enough to blend together for sauce.
Finally! I was not overrun with squash bugs this year! I got a couple spaghetti squash, butternut, and a buttercup. I didn’t get as many squash this year as I have in the past but I wasn’t running our frantically every day trying to kill squash bugs.
Also, I got some garlic from my stepdaughter last year so I planted that and got a few this year. I will plant more this fall.
I’ve never heard of those peppers before!
As for the squash, I did do one thing new last fall. I plant the squash on the same bed because I have a beautiful squash tunnel they can run up. Last fall I got a bunch of very rich dirt and organic material, mixed it up, and added that to that bed. I think maybe it helped? Also, I did manage to get a couple bugs early and kill them.
I am going to add more rich dirt this fall, after everything is done. Next year I am going to move some squash to their beds, to rotate them.
I have been gardening for years (by no means as expert) but I learn something every year.
