I just returned from our annual beach vacation to Florida. There is nothing like being gone for a week from your garden and being so excited to see what has changed since you left.
As expected I had a ton of tomatoes that ripened on the vine. I harvested 13 pounds of ripe tomatoes to bring my grand total over 100 pounds for the year! I am super excited about my tomato harvest this year. The next thing that changed drastically was my purple hull and zipper cream field peas. The zipper creams have exploded with pods and I can't wait to start harvesting.
Now for the bad news, something decimated my zucchini plants. I don't know what it was but it completely ate the plants down to nothing. I don't know if they will bounce back in time, and I may try one more planting for fall harvest. I heard from my neighbor that we got lots of rain while I was gone, so all in all not a bad week.

I have neglected this batch so I hope I get a few ears.
