The Harvest Begins

Just out checkin' the garden today , and we have green beans <kentucky wonder , pole> ready to pick . I've already picked a nice zucchini and one summer squash , the green onions are ready , and this morning I picked a quart of wild blackberries . When the tomatoes start to ripen , we'll be buried ... and that's only a matter of a few days now . All my work the last few months is coming to fruition ... pun intended .

Harvested my soft-neck garlic a little early, July 5, but they cleaned up real nice (if a bit small, no surprise hard winter and delayed spring). Last year I was a bit late, the weather had been wet, and the bulbs turned out ugly and they weren't 'well wrapped' so I had more than the normal loss during storage.
May have trouble with the hard necks. It's been thundering the last two days, and I have not been doing much outdoors. We shall see.
The winter squash is starting to run and the first sweet corn is showing silks and the tassels have popped up.

I've been wondering , just when is the "right" time to plant garlic ? I bought a large package of the stuff we like from WM , with the intent to plant some this summer , I just ain't sure when to plant .

I just planted about a hundred more green onions , they grow well here and we like 'em .

I've been out in the garden all morning . We've got pumpkins , acorn and early summer squashes , zucchini , and cucumbers all on the vines now . Some of the tomatoes are getting larger than baseballs , and the green beans have started producing . The 14 strawberries <Ozark Beauty IIRC> I planted early are now more like 50 plants , runnin' all over . I've already harvested BokChoi seed for a late summer planting , and the Romaine,Iceberg , and spinach have all bolted - will be saving seed from all of them . Oh , and the Cayennes are loaded with blossoms and fruit , eggplants are blooming , and the okra has decided to jump right up and get growin' now too . The wife's gonna have some canning to do ...

Thank you . It looks like we'll eat this bag and I'll get another come planting time . Garlic is one of <choose deity>'s greatest gifts to mankind . I just used a few cloves to make some garlic oil to sear the pork steaks and squash parmesan in before going in the oven to finish .
