a) These make more seed pods than I expected. Don't let so many go to seed next year.
b) They take a terribly long time to mature. Looking like it will be all year.
c) They need to be propped up.
Leek flower in full bloom. Same day as above. West side of the garden. You can see one of the honeybees feasting here.
Leeks were a big hit last year.

Neighbor is a beekeeper. We're hosting a hive. Happy little girls.
They don't like going into the greenhouse, so I don't count on their pollenating there, but outdoors, they're doing a great job.
Bringing more hanging plants out of the greenhouse for their ministrations.

This is an Armenian cucumber. Complete fail.
I believe this one was a larger, healthier plant when I stuck it in the hole in the bottom of the pot.
I just fed it with blood meal.
This size pot needs a lot of watering when it has a good size tomato plant in it.
This doesn't take nearly as much water.
