This is one of Rylan's Moon and Stars Watermelons. It's either red or yellow inside, I am not sure which.
The tomatoes are huge. And I have followed my normal pattern of planting way too close together and it has taken on a jungle feel. Some are towering over my head and the kids like to crawl through the tunnels beneath the plants.
Here are a couple: Chadwick Cherry, Yellow Pear, Rylan's Golden King of Siberia and Green Zebra. The Farallones are huge and the last picture is of the Super Sioux, which is really nicely formed.
The eggplant, pepper and cucumbers have take off. We have a garter snake living in this bed. We often find it under the cucumber vines or between the eggplant.
Red Lipstick peppers and Red Mini Bells....
Large Red Italian Pepper and Rylan's purple jalapeno...
Apple Eggplant and Ping Tung Eggplant...We've also picked a couple Black Egg and Purple Long
And Dragon's Egg Cucumber. These have a very nice flavor. We also picked a couple of Rylan's White Wonder and a Suyo Long.
Tonight Lakin helped me top the basil. It was getting taller and closer to flowering so we cut it down. This is the second major pruning I've done this year, but I got enough to make more than a quart of pesto tonight.
My Calendula and Chamomile and Cohen's zinnias. He's growing 4 or 5 different varieties.
Then the summer squash, beans and okra... Cale's white bush marrow squash and his big pumpkins...he's aiming to take the prize in the biggest/heaviest pumpkin contest in the fair.
This was tonight's harvest: Basil, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers....
