August garden harvest this week (cucumbers, butternut squash, pumpkin harvest)

It seems like every year there is a different vegetable that does so well, we couldn't possibly eat everything, and then the next year, that same vegetable may do horribly. For example, two years ago was my best year for Tomatoes because it was a dry year. This year the climate has been a wet summer, so the tomatoes have not flourished like they usually do.
But, this garden year we have harvested so many cucumbers in the last month, it is making up for the lack of tomatoes. Other fruits that are growing well thanks to the wet climate, are squashes and melons. Last week I showed you photos of the cantaloupes we harvested, which were delicious by the way. You can see the post here. I think the cantaloupes produced fast because of the Hugelkultur mounds but also because of the ample rainfall.

Today I wanted to show the garden harvests in the last week. We harvested over 20 cucumbers in one day, which you can see in the pictures below. Then we harvested more corn, butternut squash, zucchini, and pumpkins.
