I think it is time to try and figure out how to use the pressure canner I bought last month. I have tomatoes coming out my ears. affraid

I harvested the following today. Something ate the leaves on one of my sweet potato vines so I harvested this sweet potatoe vine early. Also, I think I may have waited to long to harvest the eggplant. But if it is too tuff, I will get my son in law to make eggplant chips.

YEE-HAH! I changed mine this morning and it qualifies! That's one of my Armenian cukes Fawkes is playing with. I sent it down to some friends in the Bay area with Katie and she took the pic. Had to take it away from him and put it in the fridge. He was really in love with it.  Laughing

Melons, a few beans, peppers, paste and cherry maters, and a Patty pan (and a past it's prime overlooked cuke).

These are the first melons I've successfully grown. They're seedy and very, very juicy, but not as flavorful as I'd like. I've saved some seeds from the largest of these melons, but probably won't grow them again. A couple of small "Jubilee" watermelons, as well as several cantaloupe are coming along on trellised vines; I'm hoping they'll ripen before our first frost.

Blacktail Mountain and Osh Kirgizia are on my plan for next year, while Cream of Saskatchewan, Golden Midget, Sorbet Swirl and a dozen other types of melons are in line after those...

So many melons, so little garden space!  Cool

Yes, CC, they're Lemon Cukes.  This is my first year growing them, too.  I've only harvested one, previous to these, at about the same look of ripeness (if that makes any sense) - a yellow hue over all, but not necessarily bright - whether perfectly ripe or not, it was juicy and had a lovely mild taste.   Haven't eaten these, yet.

I'd say go ahead and pick the yellowest one and give it a try... What a Face

I'm this close to pulling all the peppers to make room for the winter starts.   Green Jimmy N., 2 red chilis, poblamo, cayenne, jalapeno, paprika, 3 eggplants, green, orange and lilac bells.

GB,  The hot are chopped and drying.  The Jalapenos will be roasted, peeled and frozen.  The Jimmy N. for snacks and the bells for stuffing and freezing for winter.

SR,  As I understand it, the mother plant determines the variety.  Mine are all planted mixed together, but then, I don't save the seeds as the next generation could be hybrids.  At least that is what I think.  Embarassed Anyone else regarding peppers cross-pollinating??

Same with squashes.  I'll grab any male to pollinate a female. But, I don't save the seeds.

Makes sense.  Thanks Sanderson.  I would never save pepper seeds either.  With SFG, some seeds you have so many. Due to our planting habit!  Some, I do save.  Melons, ground cherries.

Yes, according to this article, they can cross pollinate.
