We are getting a few maters to eat fresh, but not enough to process , yet.----they look kinda iffy this year as to quality due to the weather but may get some juice later!---that's our main /favorite way of processing maters here.
the cabbage did pretty good, had several dozen nice heads to take to the mission kitchen!--they will get/have gotten most of the big onions too!
our late planting for fall garden dont seem to be coming up!---too dry I think and have been hauling water from the neighbors 10,000 gallon tanker, that NEVER gets empty!LOL! (its hooked to auto-fill valve to his well!) in my little 550 gallon tank, then transfer it to the 90 gallon tote to the gardens and carry it to the plants in sprinkler cans!---hope to get good later tater crop doing this, also have lots of lat maters looking fairly good as long as they get a lot of water! (rains have stopped here now,--and the heat/humidity is back!)
the weeds are still major problem, but we have them sorta thinned out for now!
eggplants have a few nice ones set and they are just about ready to harvest.
thats about it for this report!---how are you guys doing in your areas??? thanks; sonny

We don't grow a lot of onion but they did good this year.
Image
Cabbages are good. This one is 11 inch and growing.
Image
Tomatoes, corn and other warm weather stuff not so good. Cool weather, have set some record lows but the freezer is getting full. Vern
