baby veggies

What a difference a little (or a lot) of rain makes. (That is not grass you see growing in my squash plants. No, it’s not. Avert your eyes.)

Peppers…

Zucchini (yeah, baby)…

After two years of drought, plants are finally growing like mad here. We also have some thriving lemon thyme, mint, oregano, basil and sage, as well as some rosemary that probably needs a little less clipping and consumption than I have been giving it. I want to freeze some pesto this year and try drying the other herbs in the oven. (Tips are welcome.) The rosemary does its thing all year.

What’s growing at your house?
