Looks good. I'm working on mine now in the 100* heat. I ripped out all of the flowers I was growing for market since they werent selling as well as I had expected so im making room for the fall crops.

Looking good. My corn is doing awesome, the zucchini keeps rotting...to much rain. Only planted 4 tomato plants this year...I have enough sauce, stewed, juice & salsa canned to choke someone. Out of six rubarb plants only one made it. Peppers & beans are doing great as well.
I'll have to post up a pic later on.

I can't stand the heat downstate, but I do envy your growing season.
What is your fall crop?

I went way over with the tomatoes this year.
My peppers are the only thing not growing well.

Damn storm that just came through knocked my spuds over.
hoping they stand back up.

P89 I had the same problem with my zucs rotting too. I just ripped them out and put in more kale transplants.

Fall crops im putting in are more kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts, lettuces, kholrabi, spinach, and some salad greens. I'd like to grow carrots and beets but root crops dont do well in my soil yet, its still too heavy.

I'll take a picture later this morning when I go out to water. I still have more weeding to do but like I said yesterday, its too damn hot out.

We have a small garden. But our tomatoes aren't doing well this year for some reason. Last year we had plenty, and I made and froze a lot of tomato sauce. But so far hardly anything this year. :-( Zucchini doing well. Yellow squash doing okay. Bell peppers doing fine. Onions did fine until I sent my son out to pick me ONE and he picked the whole row. (Grr) Froze those. Carrots flopped. We tried corn last year but it didn't do well so we didn't try this year. Oh our jalapenos and sweet peppers are doing fine too.

God's Country...what do you do with all of those? Do you freeze them?

Does anyone here grow Red Chili Peppers? I'm working on making my own hot sauce, and as a test I have some chili's and garlic fermenting to move onto the next step of making sauce. Just wondering if anyone has any insight on growing good Chili Peppers in PA.

People do it up here. I had some given to me last year. The plants and peppers all looked healthy and plentiful, so I'm guessing if they grow OK up here downstate should be a cinch.

FWIW I'm concerned about my tomatoes as well. They all look really good but little to no fruit. The blossoms must be dropping from all the rain.
