|"Black" hollyhocks (actually they are deep purple). A heritage variety we don't know the name of.|
|Horseradish which I just started from rootings. In a barrel so it doesn't escape.|
|These tomatoes are in the former chicken pen and are very, very happy|
to be rooting in a deep layer of old chicken poop. Lots of nitrogen.
|Hops, taking over the garage as usual for this time of year. |
People sometimes think we're growing cannabis. It's not surprising;

|Wee little eggplants!|
|Potatoes in barrels.|
|More tomatoes, this time in the garden proper. |

I have sent Barry out to buy fertilizer.
|Sunflowers, growing tall. Barry planted them|
rather randomly all over the yard.

|Some nasty creature is eating all our cabbages.|
|Something new this year: Black beans!|
Mostly just for fun; they are cheap to buy and you

|I was sprouting some black beans from the store|
and decided to plant a few and they took right off.
