I almost deleted all of the photos but then decided to work with what I had. A couple of hours post processing and I have a few shots that make me happy.

The photo to the left looks totally different on my monitor with an hdmi cable vs. non-hdmi. Hmmmm, think I need to break down and get a second cable. Huge difference in color saturation.
|New sugar pumpkin growing on the cattle panel fence|
Back to pumpkins not "taking". I think it is related to the amount of rain they have been getting: a lot! Each time a pumpkin has "taken" it has been during a dry spell. So now I don't even water these babies. They don't seem to like much water at all.
I will probably need to figure out a harness setup to ensure the pumpkins growing on the fence do not break off or damage the vine.
I wanted you to be able to see the spines on the Suyo Long cucumber. They are quite prickly.
I will be harvesting the largest cucumber today. I can't wait to make a salad with my own cucumber, cherry tomatoes, fresh garlic, and feta cheese, all marinating in a balsalmic vinaigrette.
|Amish Deer Tongue lettuce|
And finally, here a another picture of the Amish Deer Tongue lettuce going to seed. I look forward to photographing the flowers and seeds, and especially look forward to saving my own seeds, though they will have been cross-pollinated with a variety of other lettuces.
There is a lot more going on:
- Allowing my snow peas to grow full-size for seed harvesting
- Same with my purple pole beans (which I disliked tremendously but will give away -- I just don't like pole beans)
- More Moskovich tomatoes are growing in my driveway container garden
- Deck garden is thriving including tiny buds on my bell pepper plant already and several tomatoes about 1/2 inch in size plus lots and lots of tomato flowers
