The swiss chard continues to come in, I harvested most of my Asian Greens by cutting them 2" above ground. They will come back sooner than I expect.
I pulled up all the turnips, they did not do as well as the first two that I picked from my daughters plot. I started these in the ground and a little on the late side. I pickled these and hope they will soften a little. We had another wonderful batch of kale for those chips I previously posted.
I tend to pick my squash as small as I can and still get that "look at what I grew" feeling. When they start coming in, i become overwhelmed and this is a way to keep it all manageable. I admire Ribbit for all her zucchini concoctions. Some peppers, padron chilie and ?? and a small collection of beans.
So that is where I thought we were with the beans on Friday when I left to visit my sister. I brought her this bunch plus a little more that I collected and forgot to photograph. When I left on Friday, I inspected the plant to find a small handful that were not ready. I decided to wait the day or two when I returned. Too hot to pick on Saturday when I returned so I got up bright and early on Sunday and low and behold I collected a good size bowl of beans. With husband away for one week and still another to go, I am not sure if we can eat beans and all else fast enough. And - Finally the peas have started coming in. It did not help that my daughter was eating them off the plant. Good thing we went away for an evening and returned to many, ready to pick peas.
And a few odds and ends including the first cucmber.
