Loving seeing everyone's pics, keep 'em coming!
Scott, harvesting pinecone nuts, that is a new one for me, my hat is off to you my friend, that takes some patience...and time.
Here are two Jamaican Red Scotch Bonnet chilies I just harvested this morning.
Anyone have any tomatoes ripening up yet? Most of mine are still green...

Hey Scott, if you do make pesto sauce, it goes GREAT on Angel Hair pasta. It is also delicious as a spread on slices of a crusty bread. Here is a recipe for CLASSIC/TRADITIONAL Pesto Sauce and a picture of what it "should" look like when done. :D ::tu::

YIELD: Makes about 1 cup
INGREDIENTS:
4 cups fresh basil leaves (from about 3 large bunches)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated Pecorino Sardo cheese, also known as Fiore Sardo cheese
1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

PREPARATION:
Combine first 4 ingredients in blender. Blend until paste forms, stopping often to push down basil. Add both cheeses and salt; blend until smooth. Transfer to small bowl. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Top with 1/2 inch olive oil and chill.)

Those are some lush looking squash and bean plants, Mike!

Scott - it has been a few years since the last time I ate any pine nuts. I never harvested them like you are doing, I just picked them up and ate them one by one. I think they are pretty good: and quite a different flavor from anything else. I always like to try something unique.

Scott, you're taking the food out of the poor little squirrels mouths! ::poke::
Mighty lush lookin' plants there, Mike! Now if you had the corn in the picture, it would be the 3 Sisters of the Native Americans. ::tu::
The Pinkeye Purple Hull peas in the garden finally played out or maybe we got tired of picking them. We cut them in a couple of weeks and hilled up two slightly elevated rows and planted 4 Seminole pumpkin seeds about every 10 foot. The peas that were dry and disked back into the soil have also germinated along with the pumpkin seeds. Take a look:

These pea vines we disked back into the soil.

How the patch looked after disking and replanting.

Volunteer peas will take over unless we keep them cut under with the disk harrow and chopped with the hoe around the pumpkin plants.

Can you tell which is a pumpkin sprout?

These pumpkins/squash usually make before Thanksgiving. They have a long shelf/pantry life if they have no bumps, bruises or blemishes. We have had them on the pantry floor for up to 6 months or so.
Miss Joy makes a special pie with them and also bakes pumpkin bread in the one pound metal coffee cans that are no longer available. They make the neatest little round delicious roll of bread! :)
The pumpkins are a big temptation to the deer once they almost mature, we learned that the hard way many years ago.
The rest of the garden has succumbed to the summer heat with the exception of the Bell, Jalapeño and Sweet Banana peppers.
When you enlarge the pictures, there are a couple of clumps of Pampas grass which seems to be very similar to the saw grass of some of the Florida wetlands. They old timers used to say, "When the saw grass blooms, it is time for the hurricanes."

Here is the last bucket of Purple Hull peas we picked before we disked them under and planted the pumpkins:

Sheesh, that's a big bucket of peas Phillip! What are you going to do with all of those peas?

Here is a big plump chocolate habanero I picked yesterday...

Thanks Steve. That particular habby is destined for the salsa jar. Love the slow burn and flavor of the chocolate habanero.

Philip, did you ever plant any Cushaw squash?
