When we had the garden, I grilled cabbage, too. I haven't found a way to use cabbage that I don't like😉
I planted some sunflowers and the deer are them off, they were mixed in with some lilies in the FRONT yard. We have a porcupine destroying a pear tree. Chuck walks out every night around 11 pm hoping to find it, but it's coming in later.

We got white half runner greenbeans that are ready to pick already sold a few bushels. Ambrosa sweet corn has some pretty decent ears on them will be ready in a week if we can keep the coons out of it. Lol Got okra growing to but will be a little while before it's ready. Picked a bunch of peppers and cucumbers today. Our tomatoes are coming along pretty good. Some rain would do some good it's not been raining much around here like we need for our crops, an inch of rain a week is ideal for a garden to produce really good but that hardly ever happens. They will sale no matter what though especially as cheap as we always sale the green beans for but it keeps our customers happy so that's what matters.

I forgot to post on the lettuce.... I've planted 3 times now just a little bit at a time and had planned on doing a continuous crop throughout the summer into fall. Lettuce nearly always gets bitter when it bolts but these are young, tender and watered daily yet very bitter. I think I will wait until later in August for the next planting.

My friend brought us down supper one day we were making hay. It included spaghetti with her homemade sauce and a salad with some lettuce out if her garden. It was nice and tender.

Chuck got the porcupine last night, but the deer got the rest of my sunflowers the night before.

Getting quite a few cucumbers and I'm going to have to start making some pickles and relish. Mom got one good picking of green beans and canned a bunch of them. Squash and okra are starting to come on really good. I finally picked my first red tomato today! Plants have a bunch of green ones and lots of new blooms so hopefully before long I'll be canning tomatoes and salsa.
Been terribly hot and dry here for most of the month and the humidity has been horrible! We have rain forecast for next week coming off the hurricane that is hitting Texas right now. I went and got some new soaker hoses a couple of weeks ago.
My grandma who I mention often here was moved into a nursing facility last month against my and moms will. She has short term memory loss but aside from that gets around great and can work a grown man in the ground at 93! I'm still pretty upset about losing my blackberry picking and gardening buddy. I've lived near her except a few years when Chey and I were first married since I was 5 years old.
Today Cheyenne weedeated down my little spot in the garden where I had the broccoli and cabbage since they were done. Saved me from pulling them lol! I think I will till it back up before long and replant another group for a later fall/early winter harvest. I saw a few bugs on the tomato plants today so I've got to get them sprayed tomorrow evening.
Potato plants have died back so I can harvest them but I've just been getting a few at a time as I need them. There is not much better than green beans with new potatoes!
How I cook them...
Fry bacon cut into pieces with onion.
When done add fresh green beans washed and snipped (mom snaps hers into pieces, I leave mine whole)
New potatoes the little ones I leave whole the bigger ones I chunk up.
Water not quite enough to cover. Then salt and pepper to taste and a little sugar to balance the flavors.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat cover and let it simmer until potatoes are tender. I like using my Dutch oven kettle or my deep cast iron skillet.

Been getting enough rain here in August that my yard is now nice and green and we've had to do just minimal watering of the garden plants. Today I finished what I started yesterday and got the weeds pulled around what's all still going strong and used my new method lol of using the weedeater on the rest. Everything is looking pretty good but Cheyenne noticed that the tomato plants in his back bed by the house had a few bugs so I've got to get them treated tomorrow. Those plants, though in mostly full sun, have been slower to produce ripe tomatoes than the ones in my little garden on the south side. They do have a ton of green ones right now and most are old heirloom varieties so I'm not sure if it's the plant type or the location.
I've got to get to pickle and relish canning as the cucumbers are taking over. I did find several on the ground vines that have chew marks and we've been seeing rabbits in the yard. Ol Red and Lizzy need to step it up, the yard coonhounds are forgetting their trashy ways!
I have decided that next year I am going to wait a little while longer to plant a few of the herbs like my dill and cilantro. It is almost done by the time it is time to pickle and can salsa. Every year even though most of us have been doing this most of our lives we find some way we can improve our outcome or method.
I always look forward to a little bit of cooler weather that comes with fall but there is nothing better than all the fresh produce going straight from the garden to the dinner table!
Happy gardening everyone,
Jen

Strangely it is Oct and I've been canning tomatoes and still have tons of green ones. Several had died out in August but the survivors have been enjoying these cooler nights and are still producing. A few nights ago I canned 7 quart of juice and have about that much more to put up. Two sweet pepper plants have also decided to start growing and producing after a summer of pretty much nothing from them. What we haven't ate I chop up into freezer bags for wintertime cooking.
My youngest grandson turns 6 months old this month so it is time to start him on some solid foods. With his main source of nutrients coming straight from the tap (momma) we have not been in a hurry to get him eating baby food. We've been making stage 1 (very smooth texture) and freezing it. After cooking or steaming (don't over do it loses nutrients with over cooking) I then puree in my food processor. Miranda had bought baby food making kit that had an electric food pureer The Baby Bullet, it was useless. Some foods require a little of the water from cooking to get the proper smooth texture for the little ones, older babies food can have small chunks. After pureeing it is put into either containers made for freezing baby food or ice trays work great. When the trays are frozen pop out and place into marked freezer bags. I did this for his older sister and she never ate a jar of baby food from the store. There really is nothing like knowing where the foods that go into these little tummies came from.

Calling for frost here this weekend so guess I'd better pick all my green tomatoes and sit them out to riped. Sometimes have tomatoes for close to a month by doing this.

Chey and I picked all mine Thursday evening. I may make myself 1 jar of pickled green tomatoes from the smallest ones. It didn't frost here but did at Mom's a 1/2 mile down the road but she lives in the creek bottom. Grandma always stored her green tomatoes in the basement and quite often we would be having them up into December. I know many wrap them in newspaper to ripen that way. I usually just set them in the kitchen window.
I also picked quite a few herbs I hung upside down to dry. There was volunteer dill and cilantro that had sprouted back up from fallen seed 😁 perfect for the pickled green tomatoes and a last batch of salsa!
I built our first fire tonight in the wood stove. I read Bob Hennessy got snow last night! We are needing some rain here pretty bad.

We had 3 frosts in a row in September. We didn't have a garden, but my friend said it got her tomatoes.
Chuck started our outside wood burner last week. Staying warm now. I saw Bob's post, I'm not ready for snow yet and I guess that's a good thing because the forecast is for 70 days later this week.
