    I have never posted any pictures of what we grow here, so I will post some links for those who may be interested

    My wife's flowers are beginning to hit their stride:

    This is how we grow zucchini--low tunnels that are removed around the time the plants bloom. Sunflowers are starting in the background:

    Part of our broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage, with the compost pile in the distant background:

    My beans are up and climbing. Other than some radishes, between the beans, that's all that I've planted this year.

    We are harvesting zucchini, and cucumbers, and our first ripe tomato will be in the next two days. We are harvesting peppers, too, but they are green, not ripe yet.

    Nothing yet except

    Toms by end of month up till November unless the blight hits again.

    Elephant garlic all picked.

    Strawberries just started to pick.

    Onions and normal garlic still not big enough to pick.

    Sweet corn a bit slow.

    Potatoes can start digging by the end of the month as they are main crop

    But at last its warming up and have had a good lot of rain in the past month.

    Started canning pickles, lots of cucumbers. Ate our first ears of corn Wednesday and a few pods of okra.

    We have started canning pickles, but I don't know what she has totaled so far. I know our big cucumbers (Japanese type) are coming on strong. I'm glad you have done some canning, @Sheldon Scott. How is your lady doing?

    We picked the corn, blanched and put it in the freezer. I plan to make dill pickles next.

    She is getting around but feels weak and tires easily. Thank you for asking @Don Alaska
