The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

It won't be long until we have squash. So far, no sign of any kind of squash bugs. So far.
This bell pepper is still small, but it won't be long until it is ready to pick, too. Nissa is my garden buddy, so she came out from her cozy hidden den under the mystery vine, to pose with it. So far, this is the only pepper on any of the nine plants.

It rained again this morning, so all the plants ought to take another growth spurt. Maybe in a couple of days I'll have little tomatoes develop and the mesclun and chard will be leafed up enough, again, to get another cutting. I cut all of the remaining chard yesterday afternoon for a huge pan full for dinner last night, with enough left for another meal of it tonight. It will be a good while longer for the okra. The moon and stars watermelons didn't come up, unfortunately. I only planted one hill, because I was really short on room. I'll have to try those again. The onions are progressing, although they seem to be slowly 'digging' themselves out of the ground. Maybe they didn't get planted deep enough.
