A July Harvest

Just in from picking in the vegetable garden.  The thunder was rumbling while I was there so I hope some rain is in the clouds for us.

My first 2013 cucumber.  Many more smaller versions out there to be picked in the days ahead.

Basil doing okay.  Some of the leaves have been nibbled by something but this bunch will go with the cucumber tonight.

A fair sized tomato.  Haven't had one for awhile after the first from the patio and Rutgers plants produced one or two each.  This one is also a Rutgers but ... something else got to it first.  I'll see what I can salvage.

A mess of green beans.  We have been enjoying these for the last two weeks and now my second planting is producing as well.  Just in time because the first planting is about spent.

These olive tomatoes are producing like crazy.  I pop these in my mouth for a snack.

Here they joined the bowl I had picked earlier in the week.
