|Zucchini - Costato Romanesco|
The vegetable garden is growing along just fine despite the weeds and weather. I need to spend 3-4 days out there getting the weeds in check which should be a lot easier now that we've had rain to loosen the soil. Before the rains removing weeds was like trying to remove the Sword In the Stone! If successful I guess that would make me king of ragweed...?
Melons are coming in like crazy. They aren't ripe yet but I have a feeling we'll have more than we can eat soon. Unfortunately I had to throw away a developing Yellow Midget melon due to a rabbit's appetite. I wish they would at least have the courtesy to eat the whole melon and not just take a few bites to ruin the fruit! I won't be saving leftovers for rabbits.

coleus that we started from seed a few weeks ago in the from garden with the sitting wall. It was a mixture of colors from a store bought package. Some of them look very cool while others rather lackluster. I'll save seed from the best and plant that seed next year. Who knows? Maybe I'll even take a crack at hybridizing some coleus!
