Summer’s Plenty Comes On

This seems to be a good year for cucumbers. In the Plot Against Hunger garden, we harvested quite a few this week, as well as about 15 pounds of other produce. In my own garden the cucumber vines are thriving.

I’ve also begun to get okra, and have some zucchini coming on.

My tomatoes don’t seem to be doing very well, with wilt seeming to take them. So far, I’ve had a few Juliets and sungolds, but the only large one to get ripe was nibbled on by a vole, squirrel, or other varmint.

Still, I’m getting chard, kale, carrots, and enough cucumbers to do some pickling. Yum! For the best ever bread and butter pickles, check out Food in Jars by Marisa McClellan. I think she’s also got a blog of the same name.

My pickles from this morning and more cukes from this afternoon!
