What Garden Bounty?

Although I am delighted by the jewel-like colours coming out of the garden right now if we had to live on what we were harvesting our weight loss program would be going great! As is, we are just beginning to enjoy the fruits of our labours. We've eaten a couple of meals of burgundy bush beans, which sadly turn green when cooked. We've nommed a few tiny grape tomatoes right off the vine, and had a few zucchini.

Some of the larger tomatoes are beginning to colour up, the two watermelons are still smaller than a tennis ball. The crookneck squash plants each have one male blossom. I'm afraid those guys will not be going to the genetic prom.

Well, still a good six weeks of summer left, so we will hold our breath and hope for the best.
