Garden update

This week's fun? 
Picking potato bugs, ugh.

But everything is growing like mad, and I'm happy to be in the thick of it.

I spent five hours yesterday sifting a yard of compost 
and admiring the volunteers in this corner -- 
poppies of all sorts, daisies -- and another zucchini plant! 
There's a cantaloupe in there somewhere, too, 
but I'd have to get rid of the flowers to find it, 
and it's probably not going to produce at this late date.

Julia's garden has produced a couple of good sized cukes already, 
and she enjoyed one of her carrots.

And, as predicted, Suzanna's pumpkin plants are happily taking over the yard.
I hope you're happy, too.
