The one hops plant is growing great.

Cherry tomatoes are the way to go. Every day you pick a handful. I've always had trouble with critters eating my regular tomatoes before they are ready to be picked. Not a problem here.

A new ornamental grass. I've been seeing them all over lately.

The planter in progress.

Lots of roots and stuff to be dug up.

Twin napping behind the plants. I've let the cilantro bolt so I can harvest the (coriander) seeds. The white flowers are pretty as well.

The tomatoes are setting and a few are starting to turn red.

The lettuce is doing great. I keep harvesting and it keeps growing.

The spinach has bolted, which I was not aware it would do.

One of the hops plants is doing great. The others keep getting eaten as soon as they sprout. Here, part of a cardboard tube from TP protects a sprout from caterpillars.

The cucumbers need no comment. A few are strangely shaped. The thick part taste fine but the skinny parts are bitter.

I harvested 3 more cucumbers. They are coming fast and furious. I really don't mean for them to get so big, but they grow very fast.

Time to harvest some cucumbers who are overdue.

After H. Gustav, we had a tree leaning towards our house.
G cut down and removed as much as he could.
We finally had the stump ground.

He got started on a planter that will run along the fence.

The cilantro has bolted. I'll let it go so I can get the seeds.

Ah ha! Figured out who was munching on the leaves.
