The tomato plants have created a jungle. I never got around to staking them which I will most likely regret. Most of the tomato plants in this bed are cherry tomato varieties. I won't know which are which until they ripen. I am hoping for at least one plum tomato variety.
The lettuce bed was partially destroyed by our dog. I found her laying in the middle of my lettuce plants after digging a little spot for herself. I guess she thought that would be the coolest place to chill out, literally. The garlic is doing well. I will definitely plant more garlic this fall for early spring garlic next year.
Oh, and I continue to pick blueberries from the many varieties and cultivars growing at the perimeter of my yard. I have frozen three bags so far. I sent my 12yo son out the other day to pick. He seemed to enjoy the activity but enjoys popping frozen blueberries in his mouth the most (he just grabs a handful and enjoys).

I harvest several beans a day and although I don't really like string beans, these purple beans are so pretty I just like looking at them. I might eat some, too.
This is my favorite gardening project, this container garden. It inspires me to once again buy some large pots and plant a deck garden. I might do that even though it is so late in the season. I just might.
My next big project is a solar dehydrator. I have a dream . . .
