I will post pictures of my harvest for this summer, fall 2021 and beyond...
Will look for pics !
For 2021 I planted:
- Silver Queen sweetcorn
- bush beans of multiple varieties¹
- tomatoes (2 from starts)
- Brandywine Pink tomatoes (from seed)
- watermelons (4 from starts)
- watermelon from seeds²
- Romaine lettuce (4 from starts)
- cucumbers from seed
This was primarily to drive pests away.
dill (seed and starts)
garlic (from starts)
Still waiting for pics !
All I have so far...
Wow ! Very nice ! Still waiting on mine !
My first and second. I believe they are Burpee Marketmore or Beauty.
Which length is best? I thought the firstn which was over 8", was too much...
I harvest mine when they are much smaller, so I don’t know which is a better harvesting strategy for you. I am sure they will both taste good. They may have some seeds, but you can sorta eat around those.
Thats about average for slicers ! Pickling cucumbers are shorter ! But you can pick them at whatever size you like !
The last 2 pickings I had invited my wee neices over, so I neglected to take any pictures.
The last time, about 4 days ago, they went home with about as many green beans and we picked 5 cucumbers.
Of the 5 cucumber plants at this stage, we've gotten about 15 fruit so far. I have another:
- 2 plants 3 weeks behind the first 5; and
- 3 more another 3 weeks behind these 2.
So, hopefully, when the the first plants start to peter out, the new ones will be ready to start bearing fruit.
PS - Amazing how of a seed packet of 50 seeds only about 20% survive to bear fruit o.0
PPS - Of course, a lot of it is no doubt down to my newbishness.
