Not all my marigolds came up this year, but I think the ones that did were exceptionally beautiful.
I have 5 or 6 okra plants and almost enough okra now to fry us up a plate. :)
I really don't like these wasps, but he was very photogenic!
I let two of my radish plants that didn't make radishes (at least not worth eating) go to seed, so I will have seeds for next year. I was thinking how un-ecnomical radishes are--you only get one small radish from each seed. It is pretty neat how these grew little pods all over similar to a pea pod. I'm going to have MANY seeds from the two plants. Now I have to see about harvesting them and when.
In spite of the blight my tomato plants grew big, beautiful tomatoes. We have had a steady harvest over the past three weeks.
I was hoping for a dozen ears of corn from my few plants. I think we have 10?
I started only one pepper plant from a seed back this summer. It was a multi-colored pack, and I only had one pot left big enough to start a seed in. I had no idea what color pepper I would end up with, or even if the plant would do well. (Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket!). It turned out to be a fragrant yellow pepper. This little plant far surpassed my expectations and the peppers are perfect on salad.
I also planted three bush cucumbers. They have produced a few small cucumbers, but not much. I was disappointed. A friend of mine had an over-abundant harvest and shared with us, though, so Mitch has enjoyed trying out several recipes for cucumber salad. It is a delight!
