Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Did some badly-needed weeding this afternoon and discovered a perfect little zucchini -- the first one of the season! Yay! I'd already found a cucumber that had grown WAY too big, and a couple of nice moderate ones. Those peas that bothered to germinate mostly came ripe when I was out of town for a couple of weeks(timing is everything...), but I did get a few. Ripped out the sad-looking vines today, ready to put in some bush beans, beets, and who-knows-what-else. The asparagus was great this year, as was the lettuce and spinach, but those are all just memories now! Tomatoes are still bright green, but showing good size, and there are a couple of nice green peppers coming along.

All in all, not too bad -- and not too much animal damage so far. Now that I've actually said that and put it in writing, of course....
