In outdoor news...

The garden is coming along nicely, thanks to the wikkid hot weather interspersed with rainy days. Julie once again ordered tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings from an online company called www.chileplants.com. The plants are very healthy and the packaging is ingenious!



I got six tomatoes (2 each of Aker's West Virginian, Coyote, and Big Zebra),



four peppers (2 each of Banana Supreme Hybrid and Blushing Beauty Hybrid)

and two eggplants (Ping Tung Long). I also got some cukes, squash and herbs from River's Edge Nursery, a lovely spot just down the street, and some Purple Pod Pole Beans from seed.

We also moved our arbor which previously held a REALLY aggressive wisteria vine. The construction guys plucked that beast out of the ground and the arbor now is waiting to receive two grape vines.

The picture is blurry but those bumps on the vine are now leaves!

Soon the rhubarb, chives and lettuce will have garden companions.
