Cucumbers Today

Howdy. Well we are just thrilled about gardening. The cucumber plant keeps putting out cukes even though it had a rough spell with the heat wave. Picked these today. That makes about 52 this year from just one plant. The container bush cucumber plants died early, but this straight eight keeps on growing and flowering. Yay!!

Tomatoes Going Bananas

Just when we think we have seen it all, the day of 9/9/9 hits and our tomato harvest is exactly 100 in a single day!!!!! Wow. It took three bags to haul them in the house. We counted the batch here one time and it turned out to be exactly 100. Some of the tiny ones we do not count, but it is stunning to have so many in one day. We have been sharing, and tomorrow sounds like another good day to share. Happy Gardening from Our Suburban Garden.

Tomato Tuesday

Today was a big tomato day. 36 picked and 300 year to date all together. Wow!! Mortgage lifters in front of the blogging machine. Japanese black trifle on top of the keyboard. Volunteer tomatoes on the right side in front of one sad looking cucumber. My opinion: mortgage lifters are huge, tasty and shaped weirdly. Black trifles are a little disappointing in the size and low output, but we'll happily take what we get. This is one of those days when the picking basket just isn't big enough. Happy Gardening!!!!!
