It's definitely summertime here with tomatoes and peppers along with a lone carrot I pulled.
Before leaving I harvested everything I could:
I harvested the first Sugar Baby Watermelon. I still need to get better at telling when a melon is ripe. I'm not good at the sound they make when you thump them, so I tried the dried tendril technique and it wasn't too accurate. The melon was edible, but definitely could have been riper. However, I was afraid to leave it to the squirrels while I was gone.
When I came home, before unpacking the car, I had to run and check on the garden. I was greeted with lots of tomatoes:
There were plenty of green beans, my first yellow bell pepper, a few cucumbers, and my proudest harvest: a Hubbard squash. This was my trap crop for the vine borers, so I was ecstatic to actually harvest.
