    Tomatoes are going nuts ... Okra is really starting to come on now. Smoked a few last week on the smoker/grill talk about yummy. Also smoked a bunch of peppers and a turkey breast. Not all peppers were from the garden but local market had them on sale and still waiting for mine to kick in high gear. 20170810_195133.jpg 20170806_164438.jpg 20170806_133128.jpg 20170806_155410.jpg

    Saw my first just-starting-to-ripen tomato this morning. By the time I got home from work, my fellow gardener the chipmunk had already nibbled halfway around it.

    Thanks to lady 3 houses down, block had a large feral cat colony. Then coyotes moved in, feral cats disappeared. Past 2 summers chipmunks everywhere. At first they where cute now big pests. Hoping for Red Tail Harks to move in.

    This year's harvest of purple potatoes. Grew them in fabric grow bags.
    They made a nice colorful lunch with fresh green beans and nasturtium flowers. VZM.IMG_20170921_190025.jpg

    I'm making perhaps my last Eggplant parmesan of the year, but my tomatoes are still going strong, nice and green leaves and full of fruits!

    Anyone grow Shishito peppers? Had them last 2 years. I would build a greenhouse to keep them going year round if I could. Supposedly, 1 in 10 is super hot. Hubby ate one that burned his mouth. I have yet to find one that is hot and I've eaten over 100!

    i tried to grow okra a few years ago, all leaf and stems with little fruit. The yield for me hasn't enticed me to try another batch. Haha, before I read you piece, I thought the turkey was a big Chicken mushroom. We had an abundance of snails and slugs this year in NJ. Should have baited them with beer but seasons basically over with the exception of some lettuce and stragglers. No Fall plantings this year, like kale and such as the bugs will get them this year with the mild weather we are having here this Fall.
