Thanks for the feedback, y'all. With your encouragement, I'll mention a few "garden updates".
Daniel asked about my persimmons. They are ripening prematurely due to this stretch of 90 degree days. It appears I have two varieties. One tree is small with huge fruits--the other, opposite. It's a mystery to me.

I pick a quart of red raspberries every day, filling my freezer with what I don't eat 3 times a day.
My pear tree is loaded and dropping its fruit prematurely. Too green to eat yet.

The only things left in my garden are some root veggies (beets, sweet potatoes, carrots) and a little chard and kale. Most of my planted tomato plants died. But I have some "volunteer" cherry tomatoes aplenty.
In summary, things are winding down. I've cleaned up about half my garden. Time for it to rest.

They look like fancy vases, Daniel.

... a gem from our friend Thomas Edison on failing...

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. " Thomas A. Edison

 Is it wrong to boast of one's own accomplishments?

The way I see it, Trump boasts himself as if he was a God, or holier than thou, or can't do wrong, and I don't see you doing those things.

I have never noticed any bragging here from anyone.

Randy, I don't read you as "boasting" but you share with others who love gardening.

Randy, you don't sound like you're boasting when you talk about your garden or show pictures of it.

Daniel, you've encouraged me to continue posting here. I sometimes feel I'm boasting when I talk about my yard and garden (despite envy of yours). Not everybody is so lucky to have space and time to work in a garden. I certainly enjoy your photos and reading about your progress. I may have to invite myself out to see everything first hand! Keep those post a-coming.

Daniel, while I love gardening, I'm not as serious about it as you are. I might check out those gardening sites you mentioned, but if I get envious of what you do, imagine how I'd feel reading about a whole bunch of other great gardeners! Will you continue blogging on "Growing Greener"?

And I'm with you in avoiding certain discussion issues. I don't need to be aggravated.

A good way to be, for sure.
