Garden Shots

It's so good to be back in the garden. I'm not spending nearly enough time weeding but Penny and I have been picking plenty and Alex has been busy hunting for grasshoppers, aka "chicken treats".
Scarlet runner beans are a new favorite.  They are SO good stir fried with garlic!
Alex's sugar baby melons are larger than softballs. Will they ripen in time?
Lots of big grasshoppers this year. On the beans.
On the beets. Detroit dark red beets that is.
Sour puss Penny
Smirks crunching on cucumbers.
