2 years of neglect will make a weed garden grow like crazy. Got a 4 foot high pile of weeds and roots for my reclaiming effort.

Just glad I kept mom out of the nursing home this Summer so I could regain control on the situation. 

Good news is I got 1 cuke almost ready for the picking  {#Drool}  {#Hungry}

Yo.  Sorry to hear of the destruction.  Not fun.

Next up: buy some Tripp Lite ISOBAR ULTRA power bars and such.  Lifetime warranty, yadda yadda, and I've had clients survive uber nasty power situations that took out all of their neighbour's electronics, but not theirs.

These units are spec'd as de rigeur on certain industrial sites. Isobar 6 or Isobar 8 are all I rec/use.  (For UPS needs, that's a whole different matter.)

You could probably sell what's left of the oak for 5K or get someone who wants the wood to take it for free.

For those that do your own canning, As of last year, Ball lids are BPA free. We probably all know that by now, but did you know, Ball lids no longer require preheating by simmering before use. Just wash and use.
According to their website, this has been the case since 1969 when they switched sealing compounds and they're just getting around to telling us. Seriously. 46 years and they're just getting around to getting the word out.

we ate our first ripe tomato, a cherokee purple, on the 4th of July!! another one will be ripe in a few days.
Tons of zucchini! about 10 lbs. so far.
Lots of peppers out there, some are starting to turn red. I need to start pickling them. it's very early for peppers. unusual to get them before the tomatoes.
just a few cucumbers so far. they don't do well for me. the vines usually die early. but I keep trying.
the lettuce has bolted and turning bitter. I'll cut that back now.
the eggplants are doing great this year. very healthy looking plants and fruit. we're been stir-frying the long asian variety. and the black beauties are almost ready to pick.
beans are plentiful. I froze about 3 lbs. so far.
garlic is curing in the basement
onions don't look so great, they're growing but small. this is the first year I planted sets instead of transplants.
butternut squash has about 9 fruit so far and heading for the neighbor's fence.
I have some kind of squash volunteer growing in the compost. looks like a cross between zucchini and butternut. it's green and a fat squat butternut shape.
the Dino Kale is ready to pick. we are having some tonight.

the weather has been great so far this year. just enough rain, lots of low humidity days and last winter had mostly killed off the daytime tiger mosquitoes. I'm sure they'll be back but it's a nice break so far.

that's it so far in South Jersey! how is everyone's garden growing?

 
Up in North Jersey much the same with the weather. Harvested the Garlic today, looks great. No beans, only 3 plants came up curiously enough. And I had a squash plant that re-seeded itself early this spring right where I had my Zucchini last year. So I didn't plant any Z and put in more yellow summer squash. Well guess what kind of squash re-seeded itself? You betcha, yellow. I'm swimming in it so far. I'm going to be like Forest Gump, yellow squash casserole, yellow squash stir fry, yellow squash this, yellow squash that. {#Roflol}

Corn and tomatoes are looking great, harvested our first batch of tomatoes yesterday ourself (for some weird reason we have a hard time with corn{#Stupid})  We fed the insects very well with our cabbage{#Lol}.  Peppers are looking good and we already have 3 different types of green beans harvested and canned for storage!
