    Sorry to say the girls onions did not make it. Only two seeds came up and they did not grow well.

    I snapped a few pics today for you to look at.

    Well it took some doing but here are a few new pictures. I had problems learning the new camera. It took 4 pictures then told me I was out of memory. You would think I could take more than 4. So I get in the truck to take the camera back and was in tears. I tear up easily these days when things do not go well for me. They were willing to refund the money but asked me to go back to the camera dept and talk with them back there. Come to find out the person who sold me the camera did not tell me it needed a memory card. So for another $10 I purchase a card. Came home and took 15 pictures and will show you some. The garden does not look all that different that other years but will post them anyway for you.

    Nice ground cover in front and potatoes in the back. Another experiment....the milk jugs each have a corn plant.

    In front are volunteer tomatoes that son transplanted. We do not know what variety they are until we get closer to harvest time.

    Kale, onions, a few yellow beans and one zucchini plant. More squash to come.

    Glad your garden is coming along beautifully.  I had to replant beans and just today put in the rest of my veggies.  Tomorrow I will put in my herbs.

    We had severe cold last week breaking a 33 year record and it killed what tender vegetables were coming out of the ground.  The cold also damaged the fruit trees and berry bushes.

    It is very hot, dry and windy here.  All not good for growing anything.  We are hoping for some rain.  

    Is your kiwi the large fruited kind or the mini that we grow here, ours more ornamental than anything.?

    Are the blue jugs your milk jugs?  We don't have jugs anymore.   Milk comes in cartons or plastic bags. Do you have a greenhouse for starting your seeds?

    Your camera takes beautiful pictures.

    Sorry you had to replant IG. I wish I could send you some rain. I am beginning to wonder if our garden will be damaged from too much rain.

    In some of my pictures you will see the start of a green house. Son has not had time to finish and hope he will be able to do before fall. Many of the plants were started in a sunny window back in February. They were not taking the inside well so son planted early. It is a good thing he had started more at later intervals because like you freeze got the first ones.

    I plan to get more pictures on a sunny day. But it will have to be late afternoon when I can be outside to take them. I am being treated for prevention of basil cell carcinoma and must stay out of direct sunlight in the hottest part of the day. Also need to wear a wide brim hat and long sleeves and long pants.
