How Does Your Garden Grow 2

Bush cucumber
Lots of flowers, only one cuc so far!
Swiss chard
With a little bug heart eaten out on the lower leaf. I am an organic gardener.
IMHO swiss chard tastes lke grass, no matter how you prepare it!
I don't think I'll grow it next year.

How Does Your Garden Grow 1

Tomato flowers
I am growing 7 different Heirloom tomatoes this year, this one is...
Heritage Persimmon

This little guy is about the size of a dime.

It's been HOT and HUMID for over a week now, with temps of 100F-113F. My garden is growing great! I on the other hand have wilted!

In Mourning

My Father-in-law, a wonderful human being has left this earth, and begun his journey to "another" world.

He loved nature, and found particular joy for many years, visiting a tundra swan sanctuary, where migrating swans stopped to rest, and fuel up for their voyage afar.
It is now his time to rest.
We love you dad, as our hearts are breaking, we wish you safe passage.
RIP dear man.
