I'll show you later how we went from the bundle to a container but it was pretty simple and we captured more seed then we ever have before.

You used to be able to read the sign that said "Lulu's Garden", named after our bunny.  The herbs and lettuce are growing great in here.

The Ugly Ripe have faded due to the heat and so these are taking it's place.  We call them Big Tasty Maters.  They're coming in, just in time.

Okra are going crazy with the heat.  They always do.

I had a trellis for beans to grow up but it was completely taken over by the Campari and Cherry tomatoes. I may even see a little cucumber vine getting in on the trellis action too.

These are the Mayflower drying beans.  Not very successful this spring.

6 ft, at least and growing.

I have radishes that are over 3 ft high and blooming but have not produced a single bulb at the bottom.  I'm thinking we'll try that again in the fall when we can have cooler weather. My onions are monstrous.

What a tangled mess of yellow squash, sweet basil, jalapenos (got choked out), radishes, tomatoes and bell peppers.  I'm desperately trying to save the bell peppers from being choked out. There is no foot space here when I come in to get the tomatoes.

Well, ok, that is the main spring garden.  My acorn squash and pickling cucumbers were all ruined by larva eating them.  Yuck.

Thanks for visiting!
