The first green pepper:
now looks like this:
Also, it's officially the "first" pepper, as other tiny ones are blooming.
Our first squash plants have come in. These look like acorn squash (which, baked with brown sugar and a bit of rum is FANTASTIC): I didn't know squashes grew from the bulb under the blossom. Once the flowers die off, the bulbs swell.
This might be butternut squash. I planted from a medley seed packet, and there's no telling what we're going to ultimately grow.
This is the largest pumpkin plant. You can see the glove for scale. Pumpkins and other squash plants sprout vines and tiny tendrils hook them into place.
Here's some corn stalks with the glove as scale. They have launched within this week.
This was the patch where the wild berry bushes sat. I cleared them away to give me a decent garden corner, and I put in grass seed.
Now it looks like this. I got some ground cover mixed in, and that's fine. So long as it's not a dead swath.
Your Mom gave me grilling cedar planks for my birthday. I got my confirmation for the U-Haul rental for this weekend. We're bringing Granny's piano from Louis's house up to Mayberry. I'll need to take lessons to play it before the year is over.
