Same here. We have 5 days of 90s and night temps of 60s, and my cukes survived the nighttime cold snap.  I even have 2 little lemon cukes that look like they're gonna make it. cheers

I've been removing the summer plants from the beds, so my days of fresh anything is coming to a close. It's nippy outside at night! Shocked

We are eating the first of our Canada Crookneck Squash.  We took the lazy way and baked it whole then sliced it up and removed the seeds.

Garlic mashed potatoes with parsley.  Green/purple/yellow beans with dill.  Salad with home-grown cukes and tomatoes.

Oh TD, that looks yummy! I always cook my butternut squash that way, it makes it so much easier than trying to peel the darn thing. Was it as delish as it looks?

It was very good!  Looking forward to harvesting and eating more of them. we have six more almost mature ones on the vines and one that is smaller and still quite green but it has been developing rapidly in the hot humid weather that we have been getting. We will be setting another record temperature for this day with a high of 90F expected.

We used slices of this excellent and large True Black Brandywine Tomato on BLT sandwiches for lunch.

What are those yellow things, stealthy? Are those tomatoes?

Delicata, spiralized zucchini with pasta sauce, cuke and tomato slices. The chickpeas, avocado and apple are store bought.

Mrs TD used our only White Scallop Squash as part of the evening meal.  She first cooked it in about 1 inch of boiling water, then removed the seeds.  She sauteed bacon, onion, bread crumbs and pieces of the squash. She then used that mix to stuff the other part of the squash and baked the whole thing in the oven. It tasted very good.

I cooked up the okra and eggplant from the SFG. I sliced them into quarter inch thick rounds, then soaked them in egg and covered them with corn meal to make the batter. Then they went into a pan of hot olive oil. Tasted OK. The photos show only the okra. I'm no cook so don't laugh too hard.  Very Happy

Hey TD!  I live in the south and we basically can or do fry anything.  Especially Okra.  Just a suggestion:  next time mix one egg with a cup of milk. Shake the okra in some flour that has some salt pepper and garlic powder in it. .  Then put it in the egg and milk mixture.  Make sure it all gets covered.  Then put the okra back in the flour and shake it all around.  Then put it in the grease.  You can also do it with corn meal, but since you tried it that way this time, give the flour a try.  Putting a light coat of flour on anything you're frying, before putting it in the egg bath, then putting it back in the flour, really helps the batter to stick uniformly.

I couldn't wait any longer and picked that honeydew melon that hadn't changed in a month. It didn't come off the vine easily and the end wasn't soft. The whole thing was still hard as a rock, but it was DELICIOUS! It was as good as any other honeydew I've ever eaten. YEE-HAH! I will definitely grow them again next year. I love you

Lunch - Frittata with cherry tomatoes and carrot greens. Best use of carrot greens yet- they were PERFECT in this! Also used store-bought onions, goat cheese, salt, pepper, and of course eggs, from a friend who has chickens.


Dinner - Green Tomato and lentil stew to use some of my ancho peppers and frost-nipped green tomatoes:

I added some potatoes because they were faster to cook than rice. Unusual, but good!
