I was looking over the vegetable garden posts from last year and we are almost a month behind where we were last year. By August 16th, we had enough tomatoes to can a dozen jars. This year we only have a few Stupice that has ripened. I'm really surprised that none of our Sungolds have ripened yet. They are usually the first. I think they are slightly shaded where they are next to the garage door. Amazing how just the small amount of overhang from the eves will delay them by at least a week.
The zucchini is almost finished but the cucumbers are coming on strong. We have been harvesting our Maxibel bush green beans for about 2 weeks. I love these beans. They come on first and are so tender. They are not as meaty as Blue Lake but good flavor. They do ripen all at once since they are bush beans. Our pole beans are just starting to put on fruit. The first is the golden romano beans. This is the first year that we have planted these so well see how they do. I wanted to grow Goldmarie but couldn't find any seed. We didn't have anything else to order from Territorial so we decided to try an Italian variety. The Blue Lakes are just starting to come on. We also have some yellow wax bush beans and they are just flowering. Nothing yet. We also have some blueberries and strawberries.
