The deck is a better place to be with all the vegetables growing. It’s especially neat to have the Jalapeño right outside. They keep on the plant better than in the refrigerator, and they’re still just as handy. And the Topsy Turvy is always a point of interest for anyone who hasn’t seen them before. I bought two more from Ebay to add next year.

The Balmoral put out many patty pans. After these were picked, more kept coming.

The first Jalapeño was picked on August 7th. With hand pollination everyday eight more are on the way.

Both cucumbers took a break, but are now blooming and forming more cukes.

The Health Kick is now getting ripe tomatoes. One has been picked. I’m trying to let those stay as long as possible so I can share some with my dad who is going to visit. This was the perfect tomato to grow in the Topsy Turvy because it was loaded with tomatoes, and doesn’t get very tall, or long. It also require hand pollination, even though those in the garden didn’t.

The supervisor is taking a break after checking the deck.

She especially enjoyed this welcomed visitor to our deck.

This blue swallowtail was a real ham. It let me take picture after picture. Mia chased it away once. When it returned it held still for many more shots.
