So again, this week is all about cucumbers. There are also some beans in the basket, but they were buried. We're going to be taking some to our in-laws in Pittsburgh this week. They had theirs attacked a groundhog (they think), and they don't have any. I made some bread and butter pickles (and I'll be making more), and I also made some sweet relish. Do you have any ideas as to what I should make next? I'm not really into dill pickles, so I don't plan on lacto fermenting any. I'd love some recipe ideas. We just made some plain cucumber water the other day, and it was delicious.
My potato plants are starting to die off, my pumpkins are turning orange (wow!), and my peppers and tomatoes are getting really big! I'm sure to have more variety in my basket soon.
Your gardens have really been hauling it in lately!
From the flickr pool:
A spring like garden haul from Thimble Nest (talk about a different climate!)
A gorgeous haul from Liesl! I'm jealous of those purple peppers. I always see them around, they seem to turn early. Do you know what variety that is?
Some gooseberries from mentos2 (I've honestly never grown or eaten gooseberries, but now I want a plant.)
rattlesnake pole beans, "white wonder" cucumber, brandywine yellow tomato, and okra from Restoring the Roost What do you do with your okra?
Jaz on Tour's first big haul! I'm curious, are those black beans in the corner? I'm wondering what variety of seeds I should purchase so I can grow those. I LOVE black beans.
My Rural Garden's gigantic bowl of peas (and some tomatoes, cucumbers, and a squash). I've decided to grow more in the fall, but I'd like to get a wooden ladder to act as a trellis.
If you'd like to to join in the fun, add your picture to my flickr pool. I'll be posting everyone's haul every week here on the blog. Please add a description to the picture that includes what's in the picture. If you're growing any neat heirloom varieties, please include that information also. Finally, if you have a blog, make sure to share your address.
I look forward to sharing your photos, and learning about what you're growing! (please see my original post on this topic if you'd like more details.)
