Still picking beans, so they’re still producing, for as we know, they’ll stop if I stop.  Decided to pull my first four carrots.  A good till and picking out all the stones from the bed at the beginning of the season did the trick, they are as straight as I’ve grown them.  And my peas came back!

Peppers are growing slowly but surely, though I doubt there’s enough time left in the season to get anything significant.

Pulled the 4 ears of corn and barbequed them for dinner last night.  Note: leave corn unshucked next time when grilling – they got chewy and stuck in our teeth like a damn tootsie roll.  Squash and melons still flower regularly and are robust, but no fruits in sight.  Same with the tomatoes.
