Apparently we are ahead of the game this week, because I handed the camera to Matthew this morning and told him to take photos for today's post, before I saw that's our assignment for next week. Oh well. Each of our pepper plants has a big, probably full grown, pepper on it. *photo by Matthew
This guy and I played leapfrog in the garden today, he always manages to look wet, I wonder if he's a frog.
Matthew's tomato plant has a tiny tomato. It's that little blurry round thing up by the sun.

All my other squash and gourds were pretty much duds this year, so I planted tons of luffa gourds on the hope that 1 would come up. I wasn't prepared for over 7 plants to come up! While watering, I transplanted some so they aren't so crowded. Crossing fingers in works. If not, oh well.
Marigolds are starting to bloom.
The radishes are light hogs. I pulled one today in the vain attempted to give a pattypan light and then just transplanted it instead. Then because only one 1 looked good, I went out and planted 3 more seeds. I'm only 2 months late, why stop replanting now???
Matthew got a mermaid last Friday. It lives in various areas of his garden patches.
His tomato plant is huge and doing great! It has tons of blooms, so we'll hope for alot of tomatoes.
Some of the tomato volunteers are getting big too.
Matthew has been learning the joy of picking your very own sun warmed strawberry, at the peak of yummy-ness. He wants us to start planting other fruit bushes. I can't wait to be home and do that myself.
Nastrisums are starting to bloom.

I think our odd radishes are just about ready to pick. Apparently they need to be small, around a french green bean size. You can eat them raw, stir fried, or pickled. I wonder if a pickled radish would be yummy...
