Did you know that the carrots we grow and eat were cultivated long ago from Queen Anne’s Lace, aka Wild Carrot?

Our kale seems to be making a great comeback from whatever was chewing on it earlier this year.

These Scotch Bonnet peppers are definitely the most interesting and incosistently shaped veggies in our garden right now. Looking forward to making a mustard hot sauce with them once we have enough!

Some annual color, planted earlier this year with Mom S and thriving!

Colorful snapdragons. Squeeze the sides of the blossoms, and they have colorful things to say.

Roma tomatoes! We have some decent fruit, but they seemed to grow better last year, in looser soil. Our other varieties of tomatoes didn’t grow as well last year, in more compacted soil. Hmmm…

Beautiful green tomatoes. I’m getting hungry. Have yours turned red/yellow/purple yet?
