Just a quick tour through some of the garden.

The pineapple sage is getting huge! It really does smell like pineapple. Not sure what I’ll do with it, but it’s a nice splash of color in the bed and sometimes that’s good enough.

The Limelight Hydrangea is covered in blooms now.

Tomatillos and peppers going strong!

The broccoli and Brussels sprouts are much happier now that they’ve had an infusion of composted manure and new soil.

These new tomatoes are growing fast. Picked the first green beans today too.

The tomato jungle continues to get more tomatoes and more jungle like.

Neil is 6’4″. He’s standing on that bag, which puts at essentially the same level of the soil in the bed. That tomato is a good 5″ taller than him although it’s hard to tell in the photo. I’m going to have to figure out a way to extend the stakes or just let it flop over.

The acorn squash is finally growing too.

This trellis that Neil built for me is so awesome for this!

More tassels are coming out, peppers are growing and the lilacs are putting out leaves again!

That’s going to taste so good!
