There is one more row of potatoes to dig up.
There are two kinds of cucumbers blooming. One is a variety good for pickles; the other variety is lemon cucumber. I planted the seeds in between the lettuces that were growing there. The cucumbers were sprouting between the lettuces, and when they started vining, it coincided with the point at which the lettuces were done.
But tastes like raw earth - like ten times the earthiness of beet leaves. Of course, it is a law practically, that one of the healthiest vegetables must taste that way.
Here's some more colour:
The mess of tomato and pepper plants are fruiting prolifically; and some tomatoes are starting to ripen red. Put another way, the tomatoes are sizing up, and starting to ripen. The peppers are mostly setting their fruits right now, with the exception of some that are quarter to mid-size.
I picked a small ripening tomato and a green one came off with it. The two small peppers are ones that set early in spring when it was cold, then with the warmth, instead of growing bigger they just decided to ripen. So, I cut them off (never "pick" peppers by the way; that rhyme, whatever it is about pick a pepper, gives very bad advice) so they wouldn't be taking away from the other peppers developing on the plants. There was a third pepper (a Hungarian hot wax), as there was a third tomato, but I ate them before I took the picture. I don't know what the onion is doing there.
Three of the biggest overwintered cabbages, cleaned up:
They are big. They are heavy. One can tell by the firmness, size and weight, not having cut into it, that the leaves inside are many and nicely compacted, without hollow spaces. They were quite young going into winter, with no heads yet formed. The variety is January King. A stand-by if there ever was one.
