Hows your 2021 harvest.

We did some peppers and tomatoes this year.

Going to pickle these guys.

We just moved into the new house as summer was starting so no garden this year. My parent's however, is having a banner year due to all the rain. They don't have a good enough well to water, so it's all on mother nature, but tonnes of beans, tomatoes peppers, squash, potatoes so far.

I would be doing poppers with those!

Oops did not see this one amongst all the leaves, grew to 3 lbs.

Bonnie Best tomatoes are having a hard time. They are all smaller than average because of the extreme heat. The grape tomatoes made out aces though. the zucchini...nevermind.

Weird year this year. Cucumbers and Zucchini died off earlier then expected. Neighbours did too.
Lots of Blackberries this year. Tomatoes were slower than usual, but have kicked into gear now. Rhubarb has been steady. Leeks are doing good. Various herbs seem OK. Seems like a lot less bees this year.

I'm so jealous. I have too many black walnut trees to grow anything between the shade and 'toxins'...also have too many wildlife that would eat everything. I have herbs, peppers, garlic and onions...too early for the garlic but everything else was a fail this year...I blame the gypsy months.

All is growing great here. Not really any berries this year tho, but garden is doing awesome. I cant keep up with eating the patty pans and cucumbers. Have a great batch of tomatoes, big and small, loads of carrots and all of my herbs are huge!!

This is my yield Sleepy Face. Only 1 pepper from one plant, the other I got at least 10.

Label says will produce large bulbs but this what I got Upside-down Face.

Herb box was thriving at one point. Only things that remain are mint and coriander.

Nice peaches! Do you live in the interior of BC? I always wanted to grow peaches but my dad says I won't be successful because we live in the Lower Mainland and the climate isn't well suited to peaches.

Terrible year, my tomatoes still haven't ripened. Low yield too.

Yes, Kamloops. Not quite as good as the Okanagan but they grow pretty good here.

I hear you.

First year gardener over here and while my cherry tomato plant is loaded with ripening tomatoes, my larger tomato plant only has about a dozen fruit despite having lots of flowers.

I always see bees around that plant too when I go out for watering.
Brown ahead for Bure. Bure going in.. he scores! Pavel Bure has won it for the Vancouver Canucks! It's a triple overtime hat-trick for Vancouver!

Nope.

Most we use on our garden is soapy water.

We try to stay fully organic … cuz we believe in growing like our ancestors did.

Lol means many of our fruits & veggies are blemished or misshaped etc … but I don’t let that bother me.

I like leaving our annual outcome to Mother Nature … some years are great … others not so good (had a very rainy summer a few years back … that was a horrible harvest )

It is what it is.

Some things work / thrive … others don’t. Overall it’s a hobby / learning experience. And that’s a big part of the attraction / why we do it

Nice haul!

We just did tomatoes, bell peppers and jalapenos this year. Oh, and attempted a watermelon for our 7 year old.

Will try to get some pics up.

Our cherry/grape tomatoes rocked this year. My wife has been pulling a few beefsteaks a day. Our romas haven't done well though.
