Gardening update

Look! My pumpkin plant has a flower!

And my tomatoes are coming along very nicely.

The container garden of herbs is just getting to the point where I can start harvesting.

So in general, it's doing pretty well. I finally got all the tomato and pepper seedlings in the ground; some of the pepper seedlings haven't done so well, but others have. Given the recent heat and more recent rain, the tomatoes are dark green and glossy. I replanted a row of beets which has already sprouted. I think I even have some volunteer potato plants out near the compost pile.

THIS is the part of gardening I like--the part where you've done all the actual work, and it's just a matter of waiting for the harvest.
