Cukes are out of control ! Picking them every other day and either giving them away or pickling them. No one wants them it seems either.... market is flooded with them... I'll make a few more batches of pickles and that's it.
Oh and the tomatoes and peppers, just insane , what a season:)

All mine got mowed down yesterday except for the sweet peppers. Teresa is making more sweet pepper relish as I type. I think she's put up 12qts so far, and has enough for at least 6 or 8 more qts now, and they're still producing well. She wants to put up enough this year so we can skip them next year except for a couple or so plants for fresh.

I am thinking the same . I love pickled cherry tomatoes and a hot pepper relish, it is sooo good on a burger or dog , that I always seem to eat to many lol.

Rocks....... best crop you ever saw!!! Ya need any? I want to rent a rock crusher and excavator for a week and get rid of them , but that is crazy expensive! Would cost me well over $50k .
That bowl of cukes turned into 4.5 quarts of dill picklesand 8 pints of bread and butter .
I'm going to do maybe 2 more batches of dill and b&b and that will do it for the year. The matos are next on the list, I'mout of sauce and pickled cherries.
