-A.J.

It’s the middle of July, and we’re about to turn the corner from “growth” to “production”. The raspberries are in full swing:

There’s a lot more where that came from. Nice output from a pot on the patio:

The other fun find today were what I think are filet beans — the pods were all hiding under leaves:

We’re going to have a caprese salad tonight using some of this basil:

The Tromboncino zucchini are doing well. There are a few fruits, this one is about 1′ long:

The 8′ zucchini trellis:

Hiding on the north side of the zucchini plant are some spinach, basil, and romaine seedlings. A critter got into them last night, so now they have bird netting over the top:

The Minnesota Midget melons are coming along after the slow start:
