getting bunches of green beans, some cukes, tomatoes are starting to ripen. summer squash and zucchini aren't doing any thing. Lots of blossoms but no results. not getting pollinated I guess. Peppers are doing well too.

We picked first green beans and put 12 quart bags in freezer for winter use. Jap beetles here have wiped out the apple trees, grapes, and now on the sweet potatoes. Not sure if I can save the plants or not. The regular potatoes are getting good sized and might make it. some of the short day onions are ready to pull and long day have a long way to go yet. Sweet corn is trying to tassel and put on ears, gotta spray often to keep bugs off so will see if we get corn or not this year.
We were hampered by the wet weather early, so planting was 6 weeks late this year.
NOW it wont rain so I been hauling water from the neighbor's tanker to the garden trying to keep some of the plants alive. The tomatoes are setting green ones on them, so be a long while before they are ripe.

Deer have gotten the tops of my peas, beans, and squash. Have a couple of squash blossoms, so may still get some? Got beans, no idea why they didn't eat all the way down to them like a woodchuck will, just the top leaves. Got one good picking of peas before they were starting to get munched, just a few odd ones now here and there. Good year for blueberries. It would have been a good year for mulberries if we had gotten to them, now we just have fat happy robins. Have a bunch of apples weighting the trees down, the deer will probably get most of those, too. A few peaches. Onions and garlic look good so far. May actually get potatoes this year. Some wild raspberries (smaller than domestic), a few black currants.
