|Can you believe how quickly the summer is flying by? September already which means summer is winding down way up north but still plenty hot in the south. |
As usual, let's continue our discussion about our vegetable gardens.
I still have melons on the vine but not that many!

|I spent the afternoon and all evening putting pictures in the ATP database. Veggies. Mostly fruit but some of veggie plants. But really all I managed to do was the month of August. Nothing done on the earlier veggies.|

|I've managed to get a few in, but adding the bulk of them will be a winter activity.|
My peas are flowering. With both my recent and past experiences in mind, I'm not at all sure if I should get excited about it.

Oh chelle, I am rooting for your peas to defeat those evil bunnies!

|I just love having a mess of different types of eggplant. I will be planting twice as many eggplants next year as I have this year.|
Sep 1, 2013 4:53 PM CST
|Wow! That's a lot of eggplant! And you're planting MORE next year? You must really love the stuff!|
Sep 1, 2013 4:55 PM CST
|I have ten plants this year. So I plan on planting about twenty. The eggplant is very popular with the neighbors and everyone would like some. So I need more to keep up with the demand.|

|The cucumber vines sure look ratty. I am not far from pulling them. |
These are the new cucumber plants.
Tomato plants still look good in the north side yard.

|Bean towers. These pole beans are producing like mad! |
My driveway veggie pot ghetto! The squash plants look ratty from the powdery mildew but the eggplants look marvelous.

|Are you still getting cukes from the first plants? |
Hate when things start to wind down. I'm always in such a hurry to pull!
Sep 2, 2013 10:43 AM CST
|Yes, I picked cukes from them yesterday and will have more. But they are really ratty. Happens every year.|
Sep 2, 2013 11:37 AM CST
|Hey, if you're still getting cukes, who cares how ratty they look, at least until the new ones start producing|
Sep 2, 2013 11:57 AM CST
|They are quickly dying. Can't complain as they did well all season. The new ones have plenty of cukes but nothing picking size yet.|
Sep 2, 2013 2:48 PM CST
|They did do very well!|
I got my yellow pole beans planted in the greenhouse yesterday. I'm so excited to see how they do. The tomato in the GH is starting to produce now. It was too hot before. Tomatoes are a bit smaller but yummy!
I put down some plastic on the GH floor to kill the weeds before I put down the mulch in there too.

|Cukes don't last much past the end of August around here. Happens every year. That is why I decided to try the late planted second crop. We will see how that does but looks like I will get cukes as I have plenty set now. |
Those yellow beans are my favorite by far of any of my pole beans. I was picking them and the prurple ones also, this morning. Between those two, I have not even been picking the Black Seeded Blue Lakes I tried this year and have just left them be!
Sep 2, 2013 3:03 PM CST
|I tried the Blue Lake before and they're really what turned me off of pole beans. Maybe it was just a bad year but they had really big seeds and I don't like that.|
Sep 2, 2013 3:08 PM CST
|They do have big seeds. I used to think they were the best as that was all I grew. But then I started growing yard long beans and like those better than the Blue Lake. And then this year the fancy colors. I don't think I will grow either the Blue Lake or the Black Seeded Blue Lake next year. I will grow the yard longs and the yellow ones. Maybe the purple, maybe not.|

|So it wasn't just me! We'll see how these yellow do. Yours sure looked good. I still have to check out those yard long beans. Down here Rattlesnake beans are popular but I don't grow them|
