I've been somewhat negligent with the remaining vegetable plants after I lost so much. (actually I've let everything go and can only hope for winter so I can get a fresh start.)
Yesterday I noticed a few string beans on a trellis under some grape vine leaves and when I picked them I found 1 big fat cucumber! Fancy that.

dapjwy, I don't remember how to turn my avatar back, help!

I've been pulling in melons and squash to the point folk are sneaking away from me so they're not stuck leaving with a butternut or crookneck squash under their arm when they leave!!! I'm going to be pulling in the last of the tomatoes.... more corn, carrots, beets, kohlrabi, radishes, turnips, and real soon here.... more plums and pears... bushels of pears!!! Cabbage, brussel sprouts, more side shoots of broccoli and more cauliflower will be out there with my name on it by the end of the month. Celery should be ready to put up soon too and I can see I'm going to have eggplants coming out my rear. This has been the best year ever as far as yields for me. It's been absolutely incredible what I've been pulling out of these raised veggie beds. I have "arrived".... I'm closing in on being able to grow as well as my grandparents did!!! I'm going to attribute it to trialing a LOT of different veggies AND soundsgood's crushed egg shell potion and rabbit poops!!! We did have a pretty good year as far as temps and rain which helped since I didn't have to get out there to water as much as last year. Watering takes a loooooooooong time and sometimes.... you just can't get through it all.
willo> oh oh oh.... you do that from your profile.... I'm pretty expert at turning mine back!!! If you can't figure it out.... just private message the gremlin in the computer and he'll get rid of your garlic breath avatar!!!

Me too...but I'm still getting zucchini.

...that reminds me, the other day, I thought I saw a tiny cucumber on my poorly producing plant. I'm going to have to go check it out. Thanks for the reminder.

Hmm...click on the CONTROL PANEL button under the owl and to the right of the HOME button. Then look down the menu at the side until you see:

Edit Profile Picture <-- click on this one and then follow instructions...browse your photos, pick one, and upload it. Good luck!
