  • Beautiful group! We'll be getting our first pan patty of the season in a couple of days so it's exciting to see some showing up in other harvests.

  • That looks like a yellow squash but paint on some eyes and stick on a few legs and you've got a beautiful swan.

  • Your vegetables look wonderful. I love red potatoes. The little yellow cucumber looks like the lemon cukes I grew last year. They were delicious and none of them bitter.

  • Nice photo. I've just harvested potatoes, swiss chard, turnip and 3 types of lettuce. We made a lasagna and salad – don't you just love this healthy way of cooking!

  • What a fresh-looking crop! Am intrigued by that fruit/veggie next to the crookneck – what is it? I like growing stuff I can't find from the shops.

  • Yes! A crookneck yellow swan. I love it!

    The pale cucumber is a North Carolina pickling cucumber – seeds from Sand Hill Preservation Center. Its a wonderful variety. Very prolific, always my first cuke and my biggest producer. The fruits a lovely chartreuse color inside and the pale color makes them easy to spot against the green leaves.

    Here's another photo.

    Why are the potatoes early? I looked back at my first harvests and I can;t say this is any earlier than normal. I usually start digging potatoes in early/mid July. Once the plants are full grown and start falling over, about 2-3 weeks after they finish blooming, I usually start digging them as I need them. One plant at a time. I have a super bed full of giant potato plants this year. The spring was cool and lots of rain as they like, now hot hot. The potato bugs were bad for a couple weeks, but have disappeared now. – I think I'll go dig a few more for dinner tomorrow! Yummy.

  • What a beautiful collection of colorful and unique shaped veggies! I recognize them all except for one, what is that delightful little creature that looks like it is wearing a crown? It is just beautiful!
