Last week was a slower week for harvesting – at least compared to the past few weeks. I lost close to a dozen cucumbers to pickle worms (so no cucumbers this week), and several tomatoes to stink bugs or from splitting on the vine. However, I still pulled in quite a bit. I harvested about 1 pound of butternut squash, a half pound melon (rich sweetness), almost 6 pounds of eggplant, over 5.5 pounds of peppers (mostly hot ones), and a little over 4 pounds of tomatoes (they’re growing a new batch that are just turning red).
In the pictures, the produce is listed from the top, clockwise.
HARVEST JULY 16:
My butternut squash grow small – at least this variety – but I’ll take anything that can survive the squash vine borers!
Lots of peppers this week.

Definitely a slow day in the garden today.
HARVEST JULY 19:
And more peppers!
My eggplant is loving this heat! With this harvest, I made a batch of pickled eggplant.
