Garden After Irene

The skies are clear and blue today unlike yesterday when the winds howled and the rain poured thanks to Hurricane Irene. My community garden plot made it through with only a little damage.

The corn stalks knocked over...
And the sunflowers, too...
We propped them back up and they looked as good as new.
The onions were ready to be pulled...
We picked corn for dinner.
We have a lot of peppers, some turning red. The peppers are the big success of the season.
Grape tomatoes...

And Thomas Jefferson's Asparagus beans. These are unlike green beans in that they grow off the very end of a long stem, two at a time. These are dense and tough so I'm curious how they are going to cook up. We picked those that were good sized.

Sadly, the cucumbers are not producing at all. We have many watermelon, most quite small but looks like a few might make it to a decent size.
