Borlotti beans are doing better than last year.

bellpepper1

I still can not believe how many bellpeper we have on

each plant. We are still getting blossoms for more fruit.

It goes to show that if first you fail try, try again.

The celery still needs a little  longer before we can harvest it.

Celery definitely needs to be grown in a green house here in Sweden

to thrive.

corn

This is the row of corn that we planted inside and tranplanted later

here. We are going to do pre sow corn inside from now on after the

success we had this year. We have had a record heat wave summer and that

shows in this crop.

cucumbers

Cucmbers above are going wild. I plan to pickle them

tomorrow.

dill

The dill was planted a little late but can still be used to pickle

the cucumbers.

The romain lettuce has turned to seed. We are going to

save the seeds.

  1. Your healthy crops and abundant harvest are a credit to you both! Your peppers, beans celery and corn are amazing! I love your cucumbers and wonder if you grow a special variety which only produces baby ones?
    I make soup from lettuce which runs to seed, but I know you have limited time at the moment due to being so poorly.
    I love the way that you refer to trying again with the peppers. I guess that is what gardening is all about; an imperfect balance of our skills and timing and the weather.
    You have done so well this year. Congratulations!
    Karen.

    • You are right that I do grow a medium size cucumber variety that is for pickling. They have the gerkin size which is too small. I have grown for three years. Last year I grew one row of these cucumbers and like them much better. Usually in Sweden the long cucumbers that you buy in the supermarket can only be grown in a green house. I want cucumbers mainly for pickling and for sallads.I have been successful in growing this smaller cucumbers in my vegetable patch. I usually have more cucumbers than I know what to do with. I give the excess away.
      Thanks for the praise and encouragement!

THE INTERNET POST

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
