Our sweet corn has been done for over a week.  None available from the vendors.  Our red tomatoes are not ripe as yet but the yellows are going wild.  Larger than base balls and plenty of them.  Giving the to the neighbors and anybody else we can find that will take them,.  Have 2 shopping bags of cucs and 2 of tomatoes going to the nursing home in the morning.

The corn is actually my second planting as the first one was stunted by frost. But we had corn on the 4th of july,it just was short and one side didn't develop but it sure tasted good.
I also have yellows and tons of different cherry types that have been producing for about 3 weeks now.
Those really big ones are Russian Bulls heart and the others are a Kosovo and German Johnson along with a brandywine.

Same here, tomatoes are really heavy this year. Corn needs another week. Potatoes look real good also.

My corn is on in full strength now and should be cranking out produce in 2 week intervals until late September. Need to pick 2 bushel for a local next Friday, that should burn up a few bushel

Wow those tomatoes look great, we didn't plant any heirlooms this year, we are hoping to get some in next year.

Our fall corn is just now tasseling and it's around 6' tall.

 

Do you have any pictures of your garden?

Yup,I'll get more today or the rest of it, as these just show the peppers,cabbage stuffs, and the different stages of corn. Doh, nope these show the tomatoes, the tomatoes are so many and heavy that they just pulled the cable holding them up ,down. I tried timing them up but myself and my helper couldn't hold them up and tie them off without damaging them. It's crazy! Fruit groups must weigh 30 pounds a branch..
Now they are probably really flattened as we got some serious weather last night? We need the rain !
