Just a note:  I'm going to be REALLY pissed if the hurricane kills our plants before the cherry tomatoes have had a chance to get ripe!
That pesky hurricane will know the wrath of Larissa :police: :police: if it dares to offend her tomato plants ;D

Right now I am oven drying tomatoes!  Andy pulled up carrots and jalapenos and lots more tomatoes!

Glad to hear only one casualty  :o  How about those CUKES!

LOL!  The cukes are doing terrifically.  We just picked 3 more, kept 2 and gave one to my sis/nephew.  They loved it.  Lots more are on the way too.

Our cherry tomatoes are becoming prolific, but damnit it takes forever for them to get red!

Yeah, they're in pretty good shape.  Our tomatoes refuse to actually turn red so far, but they're still standing.  One fell over, but still seems to be healthy anyway.  The green beans are beaning regularly, and the beans are HUGE.  And the cukes are going phenomenally, as are the jalapenos & onions.  And basil.

Glad yours made it!  I lost at least 2 tomato plants but the cucumbers are still going strong.

The tomatoes will all turn red at almost the same time. The plant that fell over is probably top heavy and just needs some support. Green beans from the garden are so good! Basil you can freeze in to little cubes and use all winter in whatever you're cooking. Those mini ice cube trays work great!

That's neat about the basil; I had no idea!  And yeah, the garden wasn't the best organized this year, and the beans are not only growing up the poles, but also up the tomato plants and cukes.

My tomatos are producing nicely, my roomie has eaten several zuccini (yuck) and it appears that we might not get any  cukes this year :(

The tomatoes look great!  Sorry about the cukes, but I love zucchini.  You could steal them from your roomie & send them to me instead!
