Lots of pictures of basically the same thing, but I can't seem to limit it to one or two favorites while looking at the small pictures on my phone - so you're subject to all of these.  I'm looking a little gross and sweaty out in the mugginess, but you get the idea.  I don't think I've had stuff get this crazy tall in the garden in years.  Hard to believe this stuff was all planted back in, what, May?

From this past Saturday's harvest - the last of the potatoes, plus a bunch more edamame.  We're eating so much edamame that I think we're starting to get upset tummies!  LOL

Fresh from the garden - and more white to yellow than I think I remember seeing with Silver Queen before.  Hope it's yummy!

This is end of the same bed where the tromboncino squash is growing.  As I mentioned, there's volunteer gourds, plus the cucumbers, and it did have sugar snap and snow peas....  The poor hydrangea tree at the end of the bed has all sorts of vines starting to crawl through it....  I see at least one gourd and one cucumber hiding in the hydrangea in this picture...

Well hello, aren't you cute?


The first pic in a situation like this is often "I don't care if it's a bad picture, just get a picture fast in case it hops away..."  But then the little guy didn't hop away - it just sat there, and didn't care....


This had me a little concerned - out in the bright sun, not moving...uh oh!?  So, when in doubt...

...poke it.

Nope, nothing.

Poke.  Poke poke poke...


Ah, there we go - I think someone was just taking a nap in the sun (or was trying to blend in with the green leaf), and I got a little stink eye before it hopped away.  Looked healthy and mobile once woken.  TINY little critter - about the size of my thumbnail!

I lucked out - with the original peach tree taking a major set back from the extra cold winter, I lucked out in getting a second peach tree who was apparently pre-pollinated, AND willing to produce fruit it's first year in the ground...
Sure, it took some hits from the hail storm, and bugs got some of the peaches, but check this out. One fell and got a few bug holes, three came off easily in my hand, and the three biggest and still holding on firm.  Here's hoping they're ready to come off in a few days...

Looky looky - I didn't think I was going to get any tromboncino squash this year!


I only had a few seeds, and then a couple days after I'd planted them I met a new coworker who also gardens, and I actually dug up a seed or two to give her to try.  (OR she got a cucumber seed - who knows what I found in the dirt)  Anyhow, there's so many monstrous volunteer gourd and pumpkin vines growing in the garden/landscaping that I figured this monster vine was just part of the gourds growing in the same bed.  Nope!  Tromboncino!  Yay!  Now to wait for the monster-length squash to form...I've trained the vine to climb the trellis better so the squash stretch down under their own weight, as they've done in previous years.

Um, Doogie?  Couldn't you tell me Daisy was stealing runner beans?  This looks more like you're encouraging her...
