Harvest Monday (07-11-11)

This weekend was hot but Sam and I managed to spend just about the entire weekend outside working out. Saturday I paced a friend through his first trail run, the 10 mile Psycho Psummer race and had a blast. Then on Sunday we did a 25 mile bike ride in 96+ degree weather and it wasn't too bad, or maybe I got a little too much sun.

Sunday afternoon I watered and fertilized. The tomatoes are still looking beat and our neighbor's tomatoes got cleaned out. I am thinking about introducing a bobcat. Well, the color for harvest Monday this week is green. The bean plants don't get great sun and are pretty funky looking. The beans are mostly straight and look pretty good. The cucumbers and coming along and the sour gherkins are loaded. Two cucumbers are 25 oz, 23 sour gherkins are 1.6 oz. Weight wise they have a long way to go.

I bet those Sour Gherkins are great! Our tomatos aren't doing so swell either.

Mmmm...I can't wait for our beans. I've been hovering over them nearly every day, so yours look tasty.

I have to laugh at how many of the gherkins it takes ot make an ounce.

Have you tried an ultrasonic pest repeller? It might be easier and less dangerous than getting a bobcat! :)) Good Luck!

I've never heard of sour gherkins. It's interesting to learn a new veggie.

I wish you luck with your squirrels. Last year they were eating my cucumbers, but they never touched my tomatoes.

Your beans look great even if the plants don't.
