This is the basket of produce from my vegetable garden this morning.
Here's a closer look at what's in there.
Two heads of lettuce. There's lots more to come there.
Zucchini and yellow squash, though 3 of these were harvested yesterday.
A very long cucumber which was a surprise since the plants are dying and I don't know why.
And a Jimmy Nardello pepper.
Almost the last tomatoes. There will probably some Juliette yet but the others are basically dead.
Three butternut squash. In cutting the largest one off the vine I cut the entire vine not realizing that at the other end were very small squash starting to develop. Oh, well. These are headed to cure in the sun. I don't know why I do that other than my mother did it with her plentiful harvests of butternuts each fall. Maybe a fellow gardener can enlighten me on this tradition.
