If I might share a rookie mistake with ya'll.... I had read about companion planting, and thought, wow what a great way to maximize our limited space this year! Well I didn't do enough research.
If you have friends with gardens, chances are that you also have friends with chickens ... or you may have them yourself! Show them off on this website!

I have two of these now! We get one and the chickens get one. :) These are Golden Acted Cabbage, and I am pretty sure I got them from High Mowing Seed. :)
Watering the garden and came across this cute caterpillar. I suppose I should remove him from the garden, but he just looks so content munching on the carrot greens i'll leave him be for while. :)
The tomatillos and yellow pear tomatos are now taller than I am! The other tomato aren't far behind. Lot of balloons on the tomatillos. And all of the tomato have fruit on them except the heirloom pineapple which is still blooming :)
My 1st ladybug of the season :) hanging out on my lemon cucumber
So.....I bought this as a sweet orange bell pepper. It looks very much like a jalapeño to me.....???? Do bell peppers grow this shape? Or did I get a mismarked plant? I'm a new gardener, so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thx!
I was out picking cherries yesterday from one of our backyard cherry trees in Port Orchard, Washington. This time of year, all the cherries are ripening so it's always a mad dash to try to beat the birds to the sweet, red crop.
We got our first egg from the Tetra Tint chickens, at 18 weeks and 3 days! We have two different colors of Tetra Tint chickens - white chickens and red chickens.
Jim, you asked for pics and I think I finally figured it out! These are my tomatillos, growing huge!
This young buck loves to hang out beneath the California Lilac (Ceanothus L.) bushes. These beautiful bushes are only twenty feet from my gardens. I have had ZERO deer problems this season, even though the deer are right up to the doorstep.
