My mom used to deal with slugs by placing out a wide flat Tupperware container full of beer in the garden. Apparently (according to her) they'd be attracted to that and climb in and drown. I do remember seeing dead slugs in there so maybe it worked?

Nice.

Mico had a couple girls over today. We often use raw habenero in pico. He is used to it. One of the girls dared him to eat a thai chili, if he did it, she would do it. Mico showed no reaction to chewing it up and swallowing. Suckered her in. She chewed one and started turning reddish purple but wouldn't stop. She was drooling bad. She got it down and both had some milk. I have never seen a girl in that much pepper pain. They both are going to feel the pain again.

Thai peppers typically range from 50,000 to 100,000 Scoville Heat Units. Compare this to a typical jalapeno pepper, which ranges from 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville Heat Units, making the average Thai pepper about 15 times hotter than the average jalapeno.

For when you have cherry tomato overload. Get the best sausages and crusty bread you can find.

Our squash and zucchini plants have blown up and started to produce. We’re going to be inundated with squash.

One of my favorite days is the first cherry tomatoes.

 

one of them was a yellow plum cherry.  I'm glad I only have the one plant b/c it's not that great.  kind of mealy flesh.  not the thin skin that pops when you bight bite into it

 

eta:  is bight a word?  well I guess it is!

 

  1. a curve or recess in a coastline, river, or other geographical feature.

I grew jelly bean cherry tomatoes for the first time this year. They are tiny but packed with sweetness, acid, thin skin and thick crisp meat. All of us love them. They made the every year list.

Some Jelly Bean with two regular cherry tomatoes for comparison. They are oval instead of round.

lots of zuch and squash here right now.  picked the first few cherry toms.

We've had such a cool spring/summer so far that I just harvested the first 2 summer squash yesterday, 1 Yellow Prolific straigthneck and 1 Tonda di Piacenza zucchini.

 

I have so much lettuce I've been giving it away.

 

My sweetcorn is pathetically small still and only 1/2 of it germinated.

 

Green Cabbage is starting to head.

 

Kohlrabi is starting to bulb.

 

Beets are slow but improving.

 

Carrots are growing like weeds. 

 

Onions are weaksauce this year it seems.

 

Peas are kicking out lots of giant Mammoth Melting Sugars, Little Marvel shelling peas are filling well.

 

Bush beans are setting pods finally, Provider and Top Crop.

 

The garlic is great, getting ready to lift the softneck garlic this week, hardnecks soon after.

 

Cukes and cantaloupes are flowering nicely, already have some fruit set on the Minnesotta Midget Melons, the Becks Snake River is about there too.

The Ahtrakhanski Watermelon plants are finally growing more, a few male flowers so far. 

 

Kuri Squash and Giant Pumpkin are growing well, a few are flowering now. 

 

Peppers are flowering, a few have stated setting fruits, Romanian Rainbow was first, Coral Bell second, Anaheim third, Jalapeno and Amish pimento not yet.

 

Tomatillos are setting fruit, the one plant has set the biggest lanterns I've personally seen on my plants.

 

Sweet potatoes weren't planted until June 3rd, slow to take but all 12 slips survived. Finally taking off with some overnight warmth.

 

Potatoes are growing really well, good healthy plants, 4 varieties.

 

I may have to purchase dill for pickles, I tried direct seed only this year instead of transplanting like I've done in the past, first planting failed, second is sloooowww.

 

My tomatoes are doing better now, all 34 of them (I swear I'll grow fewer next year). I may have found a new favorite early called Sasha's Altai, it's out setting Bloody Butcher, it all depends on taste. 24 named varieties + 2 different phenotypes of a 2nd generation plant from some volunteer Sweet 100 cherry type I'm experimenting with. 6 paste types, 6 cherry types, 4 early slicers, 3 multi purpose main croppers, 1 big Oxheart, 1 trifelle (pear shaped) and 5 beefsteak types.

 

Lastly this is year 3 for my grape vines, 3 varieties all have set on a really nice crop of grapes, 4 Glenora blue seedless, 3 Lakemont white seedless and 2 Canadice seeded pink.  

 

Iv'e neglected to take pics this year.

lol, I'm only familiar with it from Methheads at Sea (deadliest catch)
