Zuchinni is really producing, cucumber are coming in at a steady rate, tomatoes are starting to kick in, peaches have to be picked everyday, and the end is in site with the peas. Now the blackberries are starting to ripen. Thought I'd get a little slack with the peas ending, but no such luck. Next will be green beans & sweet corn and then the grapes,. I'm tired already. At least the sweet potatoes will be a while. The way things are going, I probaby be picking apples in August,

Steve, there's no rest for us either. We stagger plantings to have stuff available longer into the season, but the weather is still in control. It is making all of our sweet corn, planted weeks apart, come in together.

Perhaps there isn't any rest - but at least there's food! :D It sounds like you've got your work cut out for you, but it will be worth it - if it is too worth it just send some down to Kentucky ;) haha. Glad to hear your crops are doing as well as they are!

They're doing as well as they are because I'm watering regu;ar. It's not from rain

That just further shows your dedication, and should make them taste that much better. We don't have a means to efficiently regularly water ours here, though a summer starting like this makes me wonder if irrigation wouldn't be a horrible thing. Do you irrigate? Or are you able to water the good old fashioned way? Every time we get a 30% chance of rain here it seems to disappear by the next morning.. oh well.
