    A beauty! Like everything else in my garden, me eggplant are just not growing this year...a lament I am hearing from many folks here in the northeast this year. I am just starting to get blooms on my pepper plants. I have beefsteak tomatoes that are about as big as tennis balls and green as grass. At least I had a good crop of lettuce, onions, spinach, peas and now cucumbers. I can't believe it is August 5th and I am buying tomatoes from farm stands that are shipping them in from down South or green houses.

    Same @MoonShadows - lots of green tomatoes... nothing ripening. Cucumbers are infected with scale or rot or mildew or something so they look horrible but we're getting great fruit. Lots of peppers finally, but we only grow jalapeƱos and shishitos and cayenne- no bell peppers. Weird season for sure. I'm looking forward to my fall garden!

    I've mentioned how terrible my garden is this year, add in neglect and you get this mess. I spent all day Saturday cleaning up. But it's a bit of a lost cause. After today's rain, will replenish with some fall crops.

    I usually try a new veggie each year. This year was lemon shaped cucumbers. They are small, lemon sized, but super crunchy. Not the best yield, but would grow again.

    Never heard of them. They look interesting.

    BTW...I spotted a cherry tomato that has begun to ripen. Maybe there is still hope this season!

    haha, I'm still waiting for my first as well
    had a few early girls but the other varieties are starting to ripen, I'd say they are about 3 weeks late for us this year

    some people are only allergic to the seed and that pulpy material (know a few also for tomatoes)
    have you tried just the flesh?

    you can have all mine, we harvested maybe around... 1000 cherry tomaters this year! and they are still coming... :( more picking for me...
    Lol I picked some for the ducks, and threw them over (maybe... 3 bushes full roughly) to them and they ate them, next dad my step dad comes out "uh what happened" and then I just went with it, turns out a raccoon got in the garden ;)

    We grew those lemon cucumbers one year - they were interesting! I had forgotten about those. I think I'll put those on the list for next year. What's not on next year's list? Anything I grew this year! haha! What a summer!

    The tomatoes can stop now! My shelves are filled with the canned goods fromy this year. Will be sending the extras to work with hubby. They got green onions and Shishito peppers today.
    Had a vine start up under my composter. Lots of flowers but no fruit and then lo and behold! Cantaloupe -

    Now they might do like mine and mature faster than you can eat them :)
