I haven't posted anything about my garden lately, Here is an update, I pulled all my onions and Taters 3 or 4 weeks ago, I got plenty of each but they were small this year compared to last year and the year before. We got a tremendous amount rain and I'm pretty sure that affected the size. My Squash and Zucchini plants came on like gang busters got enough squash for about 3 messes and that was it withered up and died. Tomatoes and Cucumbers are another story.
We can't eat or give them away fast enough. Fridge is full of Al's recipe pickles plus Bread and Butter canned about 3 gallons of tomatoes (Probably do one more canning on them) I'm gunna have a big crop of Muscadine's , Peaches doing good, Pear tree has 3 pear's Plum Tree has 2 plums they are only 2.5 years old. Next year they should have plenty. My blackberry's did pretty good.
Cayenne and bells doing good. About two weeks ago I planted my Sweet Taters and Green Beans, both are doing really good, Last Saturday I planted some Okra. Also Fig tree is loaded and getting a few strawberry's if we can beat the birds.

I love muscadine jelly! Neighbor grows the Platinum variety. Looks wrong, tastes good! LOL He doesn't make wine either. I used to pick 'em wild, climbing up in the old trees picking them and smoking smoke vines, my lips would be covered in fever blisters for a week...LOL Wasn't as funny then though. LOL
