Nothing wordy today, just pictures of stuff

Stackable mesh bottom storage boxes/bins for alliums

2nd story box on top of one of the leek beds (more compost was added to extend the blanching of the stalk another few inches)

Success, a sample jalapeno branch loaded with bounty

The price of success, another branch so loaded it sheared off a caged pepper plant

Volunteer gourds and basils trying to hide the junk stashed behind one of the sheds

Hell no, you little bastidge tree rats, you’ll not dig my fava beans prior to sprouting this year

My landscape rake and manure fork quietly “went missing”. They were located behind the covered fava bed.

I was shocked to find this sort of behavior going on within the ranks of my garden tools.

MORE ground cherry volunteers? What the heck, I haven’t planted any in two years and they are still coming up on their own (and not in any beds).

Profile of a gourd. On a volunteer vine. In my neighbor’s tree. Ooops…..

    I wanna spend a day in your garden gorging myself LOL. Those Jalapenos just look amazing. So clean and smooth and that beautiful glossy look like a well maintained black labs coat. 😉

    PS I had to ‘Google’ the word bastidge…. never heard it before 😀 They spell it differently but I can tell the meaning is the same 😉

    Do you like the ground cherry? I tried growing some this year but they didn’t do well. You think they’re worth another try?

      The bastage, bastidge, Funny how none are real words (excpcept as listed in the urban dictionary), all versions mean all the same and all likely morphed out of the one obvious base word. Reagrdless everyone seems to know exactly what the intent of the word is lol.
      There were two ground cherry types available last I checked- Cossack Pineappple and Aunt Mollie’s (mine are A.M.). They are interesting and I like them more now as a backyard forage snack than i did trying to harvest them in a regular way 2 years ago. They like sun and seem to grow in anything with a little moisture applied. All I can tell you is if you ever get one plant to bear fruit you will have them forever,
