View attachment 849062 Pulled the yellow onions yesterday as most of the stalks have fallen over. Red onions as still standing tall. Will give the yellows a week or so to dry then put them down in the cellar. Onions were about the only crop that was better than normal this year.
Is there any problem of leaving them in the ground if the stalks have fallen? Mine are all down now too.

If "Chuck" comes under the fence again he's gonna be sorry...

He ate at least 10 ripe tomatoes in the last 2 days. To make it worse he didn't finish them. He would rather eat half and then move to the next.
I’ve got a chuck or two around my yard but fortunately they don’t seem to bother the garden. Garden is fenced but not well enough, keeps the deer out but I get some rabbits in to it. Wood chucks raised heck with parents non- fenced garden while I was a kid.

My whole yard is fenced but he comes in under it. The neighbor's yard drops down about 4" from mine so I'm always filling holes along the fence.

The only reasonable way to keep chucks out of my way is to kill em.

Last year I grew it for sh**s and grins. Planted more this year.
We're getting quite a few okra for no taller the plants. Been an odd year for okra. Took forever to break a foot tall. Some of the very lately placed are over 4' - 5', whereas the plants I started from seed are only 2-3'. But all are producing good pods. I hope they keep flowering and producing through September.

We did gumbo last week and a couple of fish and fried okra meals. Absolutely delicious!

My Okra plants last year were about 6' tall when I chopped them down. This year they're much shorter but more... "bushy" and stocky. Thing is, I planted 9 and only 3 are decent size. The others are still tiny, as in maybe 10-15" tall.

Check these out. It's called "Kellogs Breakfast." Never heard of them until watching some YouTube tomato videos last winter. Decided to try them. Great taste and very smooth and meaty. I will make room for these going forward. Anyone else grow these?

The Kellog forest is across the street from me. Any chance this is a variety for this area?
Hoping:)
The blight got me super bad this year - first time I've seen it.

From Google.

Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato is an heirloom, open-pollinated tomato variety that originated in West Virginia and was later given its name by a gardener in Michigan. It was given the name “breakfast tomato” due to the bright orange color of the delicious flesh and juice.Aug 21, 2021
