The tomatoes are still forming. The peppers are developing. The melons are only at the blossom stage. And the onions are not yet at their pungent best. But the first papaya pear summer squash is ready for its close-up and the dinner table. And it was really great sliced and sautéed with green onions, celery and home grown garlic!

Last year I tried growing carrots in a container but something nibbled away the tender shoots before they could develop fully. So far things are going well this year, but I had to thin out quite a few sprouts to get the recommended spacing needed for mature, full grown carrots. I hope I'll get it right this time around and that the sprouts aren't eaten by any scwewy wabbits, huh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh!
