Garden update June 9

With the rain early in the week it was good to go several days without watering but we had to water today. The garden continues to grow, see the pics below. The lettuce raised bed has been replanted with banana peppers so we can make pickled banana peppers. Sliced they go great with salads as a garnish.
We hopefully will accumulate enough cucumbers to make pickles in the next week or so. This past year was the first year since I started gardening 25 years ago, that we ran out of homemade pickles and had to buy from the grocery store. We will try to replenish our supply this year.
This is the calm before the storm, if the tomatoes continue to grow as I think they will, we could be looking at a very red harvest.
Today we picked- Cucumbers, Eggplant, Zucchini, Green Beans, Corn, Squash, Red Chard, Cherry, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Banana Peppers and Jalapenos.

Anybody want to venture a guess what's for supper?
