    Nice!! Is that eggplant or some kind of pear shaped tomato ? And okra ready also?
    Man, those cukes look delicious.
    I love them in milk, little mayo,vinegar and Vidalia onions and plenty of black pepper.

    your garden looks wonderful in spite of all the rain we have had.

    Thank you sir. Those are big Roma tomatoes. It's been hard this year for sure, if not for the rain washing away my furrows and exposing my roots to the record snail population this year, and the extra water saturation. The water saturation has affected my cucumber plants(some pepper plants too) with this last bout with the weather. It's the way the my property slopes doesn't drain well when we have rain of biblical proportions. I will share the recipe with my mom sounds delicious. She is the reason I grow vegetables, to get that fresh home cooking. Thanks again.

    Nice looking produce ya'll.

    I have been busy trying to get all my fruit trees into the ground in my new property. Will try to get a Fall/Winter garden in but going to have to wait another year for all the warm weather crops.

    Thanks guys. Good looking haul of vegetables ibtsoom. I heirloom all my vegetables, last major frost was in late February so I got a late start this year. So I will be producing well into October maybe November. A little nitrogen rich fertilizer(10-10-10 is good or even epson salt(1/4tspn) to the base of your cucumber plants will spruce up the size and color of the vegetable.
