If you have room try pearl onions,  tasty little guys. I like to add a couple small sliced serrano peppers to the bread n butter pickles also.
I've pickled pearl onions. No need to add onions to them.  :rotflmao: I do add a few tia chili peppers to gives them a bite. Man they are tasty. :happy1: but a royal pain in the  :moon: to clean. And it takes almost a bag and a half to fill a pint jar  :banghead: :banghead:
Use smaller jars!! :bonk: :doah:                                                                :sleazy: :nerd: :nerd:
:doofus: :doofus: :pouty: Yea I ain't using the next size down jars. :tut: :tut:

I got enough canning jars as it is. :doofus: :doofus:

Probably don't have enough RUSTY rings for the smaller jars though, so you :doofus: wouldn't be able to do it right anyway. ;) :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

So this green bean program isn't as smooth sailing as I thought it would be.  Everyone has sent their extra seeds back to the companies they got them from.  A lady may have some from last year but she has to find them yet.  Oh well.  I will be ready for next years planting season.

I would be more worried about the bunnies that stand about 3 feet tall and are a reddish brown this time of year. Dam thins get all kinds of stuff in our yard.

Just found out that our local sweet corn producer has their 1st truck in town this morning sitting down in Ace's lot. :happy1: :cool: Harrington's of Nashua Ia, ~ 10 miles south of us, & they are into it big. I used to bowl with a couple of the boys & then it was at least 15-20 pickups with around 50 dozen or so on 'em goin out everyday with fresh picked stuff. They're so big that they cover 30-40 miles in every direction & even our local Hy Vee & Fareway buy from them. Always great corn, I really like their earliest kind.

Hey, LPS. I think itís a little late for pole beans. They generally take longer to be ready to eat than bush beans. The last time I planted them they were coming along just fine about this time of year up to six feet above the ground. One morning I walked out to the garden and found about three leaves left on sixteen plants. Barring an electric fence or a high fence the deer will get them.

Thanks FW.  I have been concerned with it being so late.  All I found is regular beans today.  They said they won't climb very well and it is awful late in the season.

Here is my garden. Mostly tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. One green pepper plant. The little tomato plant closest on the left is a heirloom tomato my family has been growing for years. We call it a Toland tomato after my great uncle. He was a farmer and was known for growing huge vegetables. This plant had a rough start, but is doing good now.

Ken, the Juneberries you have, are they the same thing as a serviceberry? Have some of what are probably Saskatoon serviceberry but they're primarily for the wildlife. They're usually long gone before I get a crack at them. A little seedy although I like the canned Saskatoon berry jam from Canada. Would like to try plums again altho I've been advised to move them away from the wild plum thicket if I do. Too much potential insect and disease pressure from that old thicket I was told when my Mt. Royal plum bit the dust after ~ 5 years. Also curious, what kind of pear trees do you have? Looks like a good pear crop coming here considering our trees were planted less than 10 yrs. ago. Saw a customer's pear trees today that are more recently planted and the one was loaded as well. Even the pollinator had a few on it.  :happy1:

I have Loma and Hudar pears. Put then in last year, So they are still small. Both are supposed to be self fertile. Got them from St Lawrence Nursery in New York.
Yes Juneberry, Saskatoon, and Serviceberry are all the same. I have 4 planted 2 years ago....Regent, Honeywood ,and Martin. Also some that were here when we bought the house. Those are the ones that are bearing heavily.
I lived in Bottineau, ND for 30 years.....Picked wild ones there. You have to put netting over them or the birds will get every one of them as soon as they turn red.
If you plant plums.....Toka is the best pollinator. All the fruit trees are young planted the past 3 years. All are semi dwarf except the pears which are standard.

Sadly, after nearly a month of being gone & working on Mom's house, our garden up here is almost a total loss. More weeds than anything else, might get some tomatoes & raspberries, but it looks like the deer got the peas, beans, onions, & lettuce. The new neighbor was even comin over & givin it a drink a few times when he was up while we weren't.  :pouty:

My jalepenos and green peppers are going bonkers. I already gave enough jalepenos for 2 batches is salsa. And I've given some away. Think I have enough green peppers for my soup mix also.

After I got unpacked and things out away from the cabin I went through the garden. Picked green beans, enough for my soup mix, tomatoes, both peppers. When I'm done taking care of that kalarabi and carrots are getting my attention. :nerd:
