I also pulled a few small turnips, some of which looked more like carrots than turnips, not sure what is up with that, but just then the camera chose to malfunction, so no pic.
|Princepe Borghese tomatoes|
The Princepe Borghese tomatoes are getting big and about to start turning colors. The plants are really loaded with fruit. Since they are in containers this means I probably need to give them some fertilizer and some more compost.

|eggplants & potatoes in pots|
On the patio the eggplants and potatoes in pots are doing very well. I finally got my sun shade fixed and set up and it gives them some relief from the hot afternoon sun.
I do a lot of recycling. Here a Currant tomato grows in an old ice chest and climbs a trellis made from an expandable baby gate. This is just hooked on some nails from the eave of the house.
This Tromboncinno squash grows in the inner liner of a washing machine.
The peaches and plums are getting big
The large potato bed out front is doing well. Hard to see here but the potato plants are beginning to put out some blossoms, which means that they are probably beginning to make potatoes. So very soon I will be eating new potatoes!
This pretty lavender rose is blooming out front. I'm sure I've saved the tag somewhere; I will have to hunt it up to know the name of it. I really need to get some permanent tags on some things, like the roses.
