Garden Update

 This morning's harvest included two large zucchini (yellow and green), one cantaloupe, some cherry tomatoes, a big boy tomato and 7 cucumbers, including two that grew through the fence.

Those are some odd looking cucumbers!

We have been eating fresh tomatoes everyday, but we don't have  a basketful at one time - yet!

These are german queen tomatoes, just about ready for picking. The cracks are normal for this kind.

This Ugli tomato weighed almost one and a half pounds!

The green beans and purple beans haven't done well, but the wax beans are starting to produce.


The bell peppers and the cubanelle's are doing well, and the jalapeno is definitely an over-achiever in the garden.

Sadly, I think the eight-ball zucchini is a goner.The other zucchinis also look bad, but they are still producing. The eight ball looks like it will not survive

Hiding in the parsley was the expected swallowtail caterpillar. He's free to munch away. A small sacrifice for something so beautiful!


  1. i'm glad to see that the jalepenos are overachieving, since i love eating them so much.

  2. I would have cut the cucumber before I cut the fence. But we all prioritize differently.
