Some things coming along in the garden.  We only had a few of our cucumber plants make it through the wet, buggy, then dry as a bone summer we've had up to this point.  But now, the ones that made it this far are beginning to produce some cukes!
More and more zucchini!  I am now just trying to stay ahead of it and keep it reasonably small but for the few that I let go for the purpose of getting larger for breads, soups, frying, etc.  Staying ahead of zucchini is no small feat!  This is our Raven Zucchini.

And here is a Golden Glory Summer Squash.  Like our cucumbers, we didn't have many transplants make it but enough to get one every day or so.  I mix them in with the zucchini at market for color and interest.

Green Tiger Zucchini
Another Raven
Golden Butterwax Bush Bean.  My favorite bush bean for fresh eating.
This was the scene above me last night while I was snapping photos, digging walking paths and being outsmarted by a groundhog.  Quite nice actually.  (The moon, not the groundhog).)
One of my favorite 'firsts' in the garden each year is the Sun Gold crop.  First one always goes to Lizzie but I'm not far behind.  They are coming along nicely and we included them in our Member's Choice Email this week and hope to have them in the Farmer's Choice Bags as soon as we can harvest a good quantity.

Fordhook Giant Chard
Bright Lights Chard
Ailsa Craig Onion - Hard to believe it's almost time to harvest the onions and garlic and begin curing them all!
Green King Broccoli.
These are flowers for our Royal Burgandy Bush Beans.  Beans forthcoming hopefully but I love the way these look in the field.
Boothby Blonde Cucumber.  A Maine bred heirloom.
Lemon Cucumber.  Another 'weird' variety I saw in a catalog and fell in love with after giving it a try.

Well, that's all for now.  Back into the fray.
