I harvested the first (Asian) eggplants today, and made Eggplant Parm for dinner. The volunteer tomatoes are still producing a little but definitely on the wane...and the planted tomatoes aren't up to speed yet. A couple of Green Zebra's have ripened but that's it. Hopefully the volunteers will last until the others are in full swing.
Cucumbers are done...only two plants of six really produced. I had a bush variety, I'm trying to decide if I have room for a vining variety, and then if I can find some starts at the nursery. Same thing with the bush beans; I got heavy production for about 3 weeks then it was over. Pole beans produce for longer but need more space/support. I'd better hurry if I'm going to attempt a second crop!
Peppers and zucchini plant in the front have stalled, I think its too hot there for them. They'll likely perk up in September. The corn in back is looking great. The 3 Sisters bed is doing pretty well except that the squash sisters got planted awfully late and may never produce.
The flower beds are looking great! I've put more energy into them than other years (probably to the detriment of the veggies) but its nice to see blooms for a change. Things are chugging along.
