Is anybody out there? Too bad we are not involved in the challenge now. I got my first harvest of beans (both purple and green-see picture), tomatoes and pea pods. I have tons of garlic, onions, leeks, eggplant, celery, lots more tomatoes, beans, squash and plenty of herbs still to come. Oh, I forgot about the numerous tomatillo plants that seem to come from nowhere every year. Lots of sage, mint, basil, lavender, and sorrel as well. Unfortunately, the robins eat most of the strawberries as soon as they show signs of getting red. The pear tree is loaded with pears as well.
