Picking tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini and beans now

squash, cucumbers and a single pole bean scrambling up the arch https://mynjgarden.comAte my first red garden tomatoes today from the Miracle BPF plants. A couple of chocolate cherry tomatoes too. Oh so tasty. The summer squash and zucchini are starting to roll in and I’ve got some tiny baby cucumbers on the vines.  I had the sprinklers on for HOURS today, moving them all over the yard.

I dug up the purple potatoes. I planted one row along the 8’ edge of one bed. We got 24 spuds out of the 6 seed potatoes I planted. Some of them were real small so we could probably make about 3 mashed potato side dishes for dinner out of them. Not sure if I want to use the space for potatoes next year. The purple mashed potatoes DID look cool though and the kids loved helping me dig them up.

There are lots of beans happening out there right now. I gotta pick em tomorrow.
