    Everything is done in long rows (about 3 rows in a 1/4 acre spot for the corn). The beans are done with stakes and string for them to grow on. Thinking about asparagus in a corner of the plot for that purpose. I grew up on a farm and we grew about 40 acres of row crops

    Sugar snap peas and baby gypsy peppers. The peppers are an ingredient in a cooking competition I am in. If you want to follow this, pm me and I will send you the link.



    A few beets



    The beets went to my folks, we ate the greens.



    More peas from an earlier date.

    A lot of great eating here. Fruits and vegetables have a lot of anti-oxidants which are great cancer fighters.

    Recent Harvest

    Tomatoes are not doing so well in this area. A combination of too much rain and extreme heat has reduced yields and created more disease and insect issues.





    A few more beets. This seems to be a bulletproof crop for us.



    Squash, beans, onions,cucumbers. The cucumbers seem to be producing more nubbins.





    tomorrow it is time to dig a few taters!

    Todays Harvest, Crop Failure

    The biggest crop failure this year is the tomatoes. We pulled seven of the plants today.

    The zucchini and yellow squash have not done well either. We are leaving them in to harvest the blossoms.



    Happy basil plants. We have topped these four times this year.



    Okra blossom and okra





    Okra, jalapenos, serranos, green tomatoes
