Harvest begins

No pictures, but's it's been too long.

Squash bugs - I've got 'em.  I've been squshing eggs, bugs and dusting with dichotomous earth.  Some mites hatched and I sprayed insecticidal soap.  Tomorrow, after the rain, more DE on all the squash.

We've picked the 1st zucchini.  There's another on the way.  We only have 2 plants and that's where the squash bugs are.

We have trombocini squash, about 5 plants.  There's bugs there too, but they have some resistance.

2 buttercup squash.  No bugs yet.

Melons are looking good.  I've seen 2 fruit.

Tomatos.  Lots of greens and lots of flowers.  Nothing quite ripe, but I suspect I'll pick one this weekend.  The indigo are really dark with lots of clusters of saladette tomatos.

Eggplant continues to look awesome.  I picked 2 of the green apple.  Lots of fairy tail ready.  And a few black beauty starting.

Peas are still arriving.  I'd like lots more, but they're tasty.  Maybe I should plan a fall crop.

Northeast snap beans are really starting to produce.  I picked a double handful tonight.  I think I like the romano beans, but these are good too.  Not as wide, but lots longer.

Jalepeno and ancho peppers are coming.  Celery is recovering from rabbit munching.

Potato are doing well too.
