And so I turn to our garden. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been the best for vegetable growing thus far (although the week that's passed since I originally wrote this has been quite nice). We've had a lot of rain and not much in the way of sun or heat. I pulled up the radishes a week or two ago as the thick prickly stalks and flowers sprouting from the stems seemed to indicate the were never going to blossom into an edible plant no matter how long I left them in the soil. I fear the carrots may go the same way as the radishes, although the planter shown below might yet turn out to be all right--I haven't peaked in on the roots to see how they're comming along. And the rhubarb has not done well either (I didn't think those things could be killed). The roots rotted due to over watering and although Andrew tried to perform a partial root-ectomy, its leaves have continued to yellow and wither.
|Our carrots. I think they're looking pretty good.|
|A couple of our furthest along tomatoes, still very green.|

|Our zucchini plant surrounded by lettuce.|
|One of our pepper plants. How exciting! I hope it matures into a bright red pepper.|
|The potatoes are huge! I can't wait to dig them up in the fall.|
