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.
These are more of my wife's plants and they are everywhere you look this time of year. For those who love in parts of the country where these do not grow or flourish, you are really missing out.
In a matter of days, the beehives will be lost in the daisies! Here, you can see them growing right up to the hive entrances. I think they will be some happy bees. :)
I just had to share with you a photo of one of our new hens. I have named her "Skidmark." I'll let you figure that one out ... (click on the title of this post and then on the photo to enlarge).
