Botanical Babies, that is!
The cucumbers are coming in fast and furious. Saturday is going to have to be a pickle-making day, or there won’t be room in the fridge for anything else…
That should put me just ahead of the coming glut of green beans. They go so quickly from Just Enough For A Meal to Holy Cow! Get Them In The Freezer!

Maybe it’s Beginner’s Luck, but the melons are setting fruit like crazy! The plants are sturdy, and show no signs of powdery mildew (like the cukes) or bug damage (like the squash). I took this photo two days ago. Since then, it’s doubled in size.
Angel’s pumpkins have their first female buds, but no fruit yet that we can find. Although, we might have missed something, in the depths of the Pumpkin Jungle…
See what I mean?
