    Ours is still producing, but it has slowed down some. The squash and zucchinni didn't do very well and are gone, as are the cucumbers. But the tomatoes, okra, and beans are still going like crazy. How about y'all?

    Well Deb. Most of my onions have been harvested,the pole beans didn't make so I yanked them. Cukes are slowed way down,probably pull the vines next week. Zuccini,still producing,tho nearly not . will be pulling those as well. Watermelon,done. That leaves DILL,Peppers,Tomato's and OKRA. of the last bunch they're doing as good as ever.:wink: But the tomato's seem to be ripening all at once,getting a bunch every day now.

    I pulled up my tomato plants a couple of weeks ago; they never did really take hold this year. I think it's because I was so late getting them out. Also, I didn't really get the bed worked up real good, so I'm gonna work on it during the fall & winter & get ready for next spring.
    My banana, jalapeno & bell pepper plants are going strong though.

    I just picked 3 good zucchini today. They have slowed down to almost nothing though. Okra never did take this year, again, I need to do a soil test and fix whatever is wrong. Cucumbers and lettuce are done, peppers are done, tomatoes died after overwatering one day but we gathered enough to can 15 quarts. About the only things that are left are the butternut squash, pumpkins (which took over the garden), and a couple of zucchini plants.

    Thought I'd show you a picture of a bowlful of peppers my hubby picked the other day. He ended up freezing some & canning some. Aren't they pretty?

    Tomaters(Big beef) here are still spitting out new blossoms tis been an incredible year for them. Handed out tons of bags a lot more than usual. Jale, bell and salsa peppers tore it up as well. Canned up crates of salsa and now I'm not sure what else to do, maybe some marinara sauce! Those peppers look AMAZING Roxie :smile2:

    I picked another big batch of green beans this morning, as well as okra. We also got a bunch of the green tomatoes to make green tomato relish this weekend. Sounds like everybody has been doing great!:big_smile:

    I still have cayenne, poblano, anaheim, and jalapeno peppers, along with some Keystone bells. The tomatoes have been a disaster this year with blight. I got my first tomato about mid June, and they succumbed to blight about a month ago. I still have some plants that survived it but it's rained two weeks almost every day and I don't think they're gonna make it. I have cauliflower and broccoli which I hope will bear later. Also have lettuce.

    The tomatoes are all but done, the okra has slowed WAAAY down, and I think the beans are just about done. BUT, I have a pepper plant that is absolutely loaded with peppers and another loaded with blooms. They haven't done very good this year until now. Weird!

    I'm sure I've got tons of banana & jalapeno peppers ready to pick, I just haven't made the time to go out & pick them. We've been trying to get things ready for deer season; building stands, etc. And today....more rain! So, I'm guessing they'll be going strong until frost, which is usually around the end of October here.
