Garden Harvests - August 1st

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

Well I don't have anything exciting to report or show except just more yellow crookneck squash and purple hull peas. I pick a few squash and a handful of pea pods every night. I am thankful for these harvests, but I am really looking forward to harvesting something different like peppers or tomatoes.

Here is about 2 lbs of squash ready to be processed for freezing

Purple hull peas, I shell them daily and let them build up until I have about a pound and then I freeze them.

I'd gladly trade some peppers amd tomatoes for some squash. Those purple hull peas look great, I may have to try them next year.

Gingerbread - I know I am blessed. Variety is the spice of life, you can't fault me for wanting something different. :) I guess it is human nature to always want something else.

Ribbit - They are pretty easy to grow, but I thought they grew like a bush. They vine big time. The plants have spread to the other corn bed and have wrapped around the stalks and are about 7 feet tall.

Ed - You should be able to grow them pretty well. I like all sorts of cow peas. Like so many other vegetables, there are so many varieties. The possibilities are endless.
