Chris, can I use your beech photo for the group icon for a while?  I like to change it every couple of months.  I love that photo.

Also, Dominic, your bromeliad photo too?  I can do that in another month or so.

This weekend, I planted the zucchini an butternut squash seedlings, started in containers 2 weeks ago.Do any of you know if rabbits and deer eat squash plants?  

I didn't have the ambition to build another raised bed, so they are just in the soil.  If nothing eats them in the next couple of weeks, I can build a cage around them.

All I need is a couple of bowls of something once in a while, to make it worthwhile.  We ate the tart cherries off the tree this week.  There were only a couple of handfulls - the tree is 3 years old, 6 feet tall, so not many cherries yet.  They were very good.  Juicy.

Here's today's production.  The snowpeas are "Oregon giant".  They are so good, even at a large size, they are good eaten out of hand.

Dominic, that bromeliad is awesome.  Strange and striking!

Patricia, are the peppers too dry?  Too much plant food?  Hard to say....  A lot of mine have been eaten - probably slugs - but no leaf curling.

Wow Dominic!  That's quite a show!  Thanks so much for sharing.

Chris-  I enjoyed your beech leaves photo.

The pictures I posted were of a Dyckia Bromeliad. A couple of days later shows the progression of the flowers.

Beautiful Chris.  Thanks for sharing.

Not from my garden, but it's the best picture I made in a long time, so I'm going to show it. I love beeches!

What is the first plant you posted called?  The one that has the red bloom on it?  I have seen them around town (I'm up in Gainesville) and always wondered what they were.

I have never had luck with African Violets, though I've tried several times.  Yours seem very content.
