Man, Shake n Bake, you guys did OK! Considering what y'all went through it's amazing what you have been able to produce from your garden!
Congratulations to you and your bride sir!

My bride and I went out yesterday after the sun was low in the sky and cut the okra again (4 5gallon buckets!), and I discovered some of my eggplants had broken over from just too much weight. I thinned the fruits a bit and put stakes in on the plants as they still have a bunch of smaller eggplants on them. And we pulled a little more corn. Wife also cut more zucchini and squash, but I didn't get any pics of those If we don't get any more rain this week, I will start to turn most of the garden under and get it ready for some fall veggies... but I plan to do war with bugs n weeds first!! I know it's a never-ending battle, but I have GOT to get ahead of both a bit better than we did on this first garden in a new spot!

That's a nice haul. Do you cut you okra with scissors and wear long sleeves? I get all ouchy and itchy if I don't.

Thanks! My wife has worked her tail off trying to get it back in shape! Weve got several more watermelons and 12+ cantaloupes on the vine!

Yes ma'am. I use scissors and gloves along with the long sleeve shirt. My wife uses a knife. The plants are chest high now, so cutting is much easier than when it first started bearing! 2 rows 150 feet long and 2 rows about 40 feet long is a lot of crawling around on hands and knees! My back won't let me stoop over for very long... Other bad thing we had for that this year was those purple hull peas... BACK KILLERS for me!

Dwarf okra coming along nicely. Trying to get a handle on some kinda nocturnal critter that likes the leaves.
Got one plant that found something it really likes. It's nearly triple size of the others.

I'm gonna let my peppers, tomatoes, and okra run till they freeze out. But going to start some garlic come October. And get everything ready for next year over the winter, so I don't have to do to much to it.
