Pickled Cucumbers In July

It was time to pick the cucumbers. They were a good size and by the time I got around to making pickles there were a couple more ready to pick. I should get a few more batches before the end of the summer.

The little micro-dwarf tomatoes are growing well. These plants grow as if they want to stretch out but can't because of gravity or some magical force holding them back. The little vines twist and curl and stay close to the main stem of the plant. Hidden beneath the leaves in tight clusters are lots of little tomatoes. And as soon as they ripen I'll be able to tell which plant is which.

The Jalapeno peppers are starting to pop out too. I've got too many of these plants.
