What's Growing in My Garden

I decided to forgo flowers in this post and focus simply on the fruits and veggies (except for where the veggies are blossoming).
Little pepinos -- baby pickling cucumbers

Sugar snap peas

Straight-necked yellow squash blossoms
Yes, a lemon, too (actually, there are 3 on the tree!)
Little fuzzy peaches
...and more peaches -- from the tree we planted last year
Baby lettuces
Colourful swiss chard

My garden is still having its troubles and trials (we did lose a good number of plants to some multi-legged critters), but every time another little vegetable plant does something amazing, like poke out of the ground after having been a seed or push out a brilliant blossom or even grow another leaf, I get so happy.

(Some plants, like the arugula and onions and leggy spinach failed to make the cut after today's photo shoot....)
