After the deer attacked our cukes the second time, I built kind of a shanty Irish fence around them with some old woven wire. It ain't much but it's keeping them out. The warden even picked enough cukes to make some refrigerator pickles. I'm watering the plants now while waiting for the lawn to dry out.
Also getting some zucchini and a few cherry tomatoes. We like the Sun Sugar variety.

We grew them years ago as kind of a novelty for our kids. They are easier to see when picking and, yes, they turn green when you cook them.

Grew up eating Purple Pods. I also grew them back in the days when I had a big garden. Donít garden much anymore because I live in the midst of too many veggie eating critters. I have always thought that the Purple Pods, Kentucky Wonders, and Missouri Wonders had the best flavor of all the beans.

My grandma grew a bean that was more maroon colored and she would make a type of refrigerator pickles out of them. I wish I could remember more.

It's funny with the cherry tomatoes, they're just a sampler right now while checking out the rest. I put 2 gold and 2 green zucchini in and I'm running otta counter top room. Have done lots of grilled rings and last night did a big batch of deep fried parmesan fries out of one, perty good. The cukes, another 3 quarts today of refrigerator pickles,  hafta enjoy picking while we can, it'll come to a screaming halt before we know it..

Gave our 1st zucchini of the season to a friend's Mom. She'll be 92 or 93 in August and had insisted that we grow her some. Had called ahead to make sure she was home. Delivered it just before noon & had a nice visit. There was a recipe she'd looked up online she was going to try. Reminds me of a little younger version of my Mom only more vocal. A blast to talk to nonetheless.  :cool:

Went out this morning and picked green beans. Ended up with 2 qts of pickled green beans. Taking a good look at everything and how pathetic my tomatoes and some other plants are I'm getting to the point if cashing it in. :confused: the kalarbi isn't going anywhere and the ones that do bulb out aren't getting bigger than a tennis ball and those are not near as tender as they should be. :confused: :pouty:

Gee, I thought this was the gripe site for a minute there!  :rotflmao:

Sucks when Mother Nature doesn't smile on you glenn. Got some owies here and some successes too. Something recently mashed part of a row of 4 o'clocks by the well. I'm blaming tomcats fighting or turkeys. Could've been a fawn too I suppose. They're all over the place. I must've smacked the morning glories with a whiff of dicamba a few weeks back. The leaves are showing textbook symptoms. Not as impressive as some years as a result. Vine crops are going berserk. Scares me to think what'll happen if it decides to rain a couple inches. Some of the tomatoes look great, some look like they need more sunlight. We'll have plenty but wait'll next year when they move to their new home. July 5th planted string beans are smokin'. The ratty 1st planting still looks ratty but is in full bloom. They seem to compensate somewhat for a thin stand much like soybeans do. And the Rodney Dangerfield of vegetables, our zucchini? What can I say. They're zucchini. They're already getting ahead of us even as late planted as they were.  :rolleyes:

 :scratch: There's a bad case of BER around these parts as the neighbor has it too. Anyone got a cure for Blossom End Rot? :confused: Great lookin tomatoes until you look at the bottom. I see the experts say it's usually do to a lack of calcium & was lookin for some pointers as to what you guys do to prevent it.

Not sure where yer maters are growing Gunner but here's a recent U of MN release on it. I'll say this much, I haven't had much of an issue over the years & after soil testing I can see why. The pH in the garden where the tomatoes are planted is 7.6. Sometimes when we've been through a wet spell & it dries out but not much otherwise.
