Garden Update

This is my attempt at an 'artsy' garden and harvest photograph. That old Caddy in my neighbor's yard helps I guess. Notice the tomatoes...hee hee. I've gotten eight so far and the Fourth of July is tomorrow. Most people 'round these parts don't get ripe tomatos until the end of the first week of July. It's no big deal either way.
The whole shabang.
A tomato close up. It's tomato porn.
Snap beans in between tomatos and zucchini. The zucchini started to acquire this gray mold that we get here so I chopped half of those plants down and tossed them into the compost pile.
This is why I grow zucchini. It's the first week of July, there are about twenty or so in the bottom of my fridge and I've been eating two a day now for about a couple of weeks. I picked some snap beans yesterday but only a handful. Once they start to roll I will probably get rid of all the zucchini plants and maybe throw a more few seeds in the ground for that late season bumper crop. We'll see what happens.

With the world about to come to an end due to the war mongering chimp and Israel about to commit an Adolph Hilter on the Palestinians, this garden is my little oasis. I hope you and yours can find a place of peace, and remember that there are many Iraqi and Palestinian children that have no hope and nowhere to go. ,

Forget the end of the world for a few weeks and feast on the podcast highlights from the TdF on the ITV website (complete with Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen).

Hey Red,
Happy 4th to you.
Your garden is beautiful! I was happy with my little bitty plot with a couple tomato plants and zucchine plants, but now... now, I'm jealous as hell. I had 2 small tomatoes and 4 peppers from my garden. It looks like I might have zucchini someday, it was flowering, but when? You've been eating two zucchini daily for a couple weeks!!

Makes one think about becoming a Vegetarian. Your concern for the children of the conflicts you mention is laudable. Would that the Boy King shared our feelings. The situation is Gaza is particularly serious because the destruction of the power plant resulted in the cessation, in some part, of water purification. Bad water = serious disease. Amnesty International feels that this is a crime against humanity and I agree.
