A Little of This and That

The tomatoes have probably given their last harvest this week. The 100 degree temps are here and the bushes look rather old. That's fine. We've got enough to last us till fall. The seedlings are coming along nicely. We also got a little more variety this week. We got our first Diva cukes and the okra is really picking up.

As these crops die down; I've got another crop or two just getting started:
Yep, that's a cantaloupe growing in my walking row. I relocated it into its bed and found about 6 more growing. One or two may be ready is a week or so. Also found 2 watermelon. This nice hot weather should sweeten them nicely.

Click on over to Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday to see more harvest....my tomatoes are dying, but others are just getting started.
