garden harvesting

We've been harvesting tomatoes like crazy! Yellow, red, black stripe -- big, little, and one split =(  LOVE all the maters! =)

Plus we've been trying to get all of our potatoes out but this takes alot of time and effort. Sadly when we do harvest anymore we'll have to pull out the pumpkins too since we inter-planted them thinking it would work. it won't work =(  But we planted them too early anyhow so we'll just plant them again in the next couple days.

Then there's all the herbs and the onions. Oh! And berries -- blackberries that were already growing here! Their tart but good.

Then tonight I decided to give up on the corn and get it out too. We had a decent harvest 32 ears but they are only half the size they should be. The only thing I can think of is that they were packed in too tight? I may plant more not sure yet.

Still need to plant the fall garden -- brussel sprouts, broccoli, peas. We also are going to try the cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, and green beans again.
