Cucumbers, Spaghetti Squash, Roma tomatoes, more beans…
hybrid squash
Harvested the hybrid squash. This one grew on Patty Pan squash plant, it has tougher skin, a likely winter squash. I have been many summer patty pans from the same plant.. Interesting!
Zucchinis and lemon cuk
Kale juice
I have been making a lot of green juice lately. Mix in a peeled orange, lots of kale leaves and a little ginger. Yum!
Blue Kale, Patty Pan Squash and a delicata squash. I accidently pulled this unripe squash when tidying up the vines. It’ll be a good experiment to ripen this indoors.

It’s bumper harvest time.

I picked lots of basil, oregano and rosemary. Made into 2 types of pesto – Basil pesto and herb pesto.
