Garden update

The zucchini are off to a good start. No blossoms yet, but Clarence is keeping an eye on them. We're all getting anxious for some Honey Roasted Zucchini.

The recycled potatoes are starting to bloom. They are way ahead of the seed potatoes we planted.

This is our first picking of strawberries this year. They are from our established rows in the garden, not the strawberry tower. We are thrilled the chipmunks are allowing us to share some of them. Unfortunately, the chipmunks seem to like to take a taste out of several berries, instead of just eating one completely. I'd probably be a little more tolerant of them if they had better manners.

Allison's green beans are up. She's using her favorite hoe, a small stirrup hoe. I think it's her favorite because it reminds her of riding horses, which she loves. On the terrace behind her are the zucchini and some red bell peppers.

We've had a lot of rain the last couple of days. The plants are loving it, as are the weeds.
