In my garden I was mainly focusing on harvesting beans and cucumbers this past week. I have 4 cucumber plants and harvested approx 40 cucumbers so far. Some are used for salad, the majority is being pickled for the winter. It has been years since the last time I had home pickled cucumbers. I will get one more harvest out of the climbing beans this week, before they are coming out. I also harvested the onions this week and some carrots. I am slowly starting to take the big fodder crops out to give to the rabbits. The kale and radish that I planted for fall harvesting are growing. The blackberries are starting to turn black and taste so sweet. Tomatoes are growing and turning red too. I already picked 2 kilos. The plants are full but the tomatoes are rather small, just a bit bigger then cherry tomatoes, so I am going with a different kind next year.
