Thanks! Still looking forward to the eating part though, feels like I've barely had anything out of the garden yet! I'm getting a little anxious! hungry

Side note, noticed a very small head on one of my broccolini. The recommendation for these varieties is to pick the main head as soon as it appears to harvest "abundant" side shoots. So I shall be harvesting that tiny thing haha

Noticed I did not have a recent picture of the broccolini. Here they are. It was the one in the front right that had started barely forming the main head, which o have since cut off and popped into my mouth. Ready for those abundant side shoots, idk how long I should expect to wait for them... is two weeks too hopeful? hungry

Pics from last night. We are about 8 weeks out from average first frost. I'm getting nervous about my delicata and cukes producing anything/ much

A. My squashes, the zucchini was harvested this morning, and the pattypan's first female flower is about to open! Still no sign of female flowers on the delicata as far as I can tell. Getting nervous for this one, and the one in the 4xr bed is way further behind. I'll let that one keep growing but I think it's hopeless at this point




B. Cukes, looking healthy, but way behind other people in the area. But k did direct sow them behind my peas, so the late start was expected. A lot of people buy transplants around here.


C. Tomatoes! The 3 ripe cherry tomatoes were harvested this morning.



D. Hard to aee, but this broccolini is sending out side shoots after I harvested the main head last week. The other 3 plants haven't sent up a main head yet to snip off.

Looking good!
Don't despair yet on the Delicata, squash can surprise us with late fruits.

Keeping my fingers crossed for the one in the container, still hopefull for that one. I would be very surprised if I get any out of the one in the 4x4 bed on the trellis though. But now learning how it grows, I could definitely make it behave on the trellis I think!

Got our first patty pan on Friday! We were leaving town for the weekend and I thought it would be too big by the time we got back. Haven't done anything with it yet, so it's still in the crisper...
