Garden update

Our garden is growing like gang-busters... I'm out there everyday, trying to keep up with the weeds, getting eaten up by mosquitos.

Here's a photo of our 1st tomato (a yellow pear)... we now have lots of baby tomatoes growing on our 11 plants.

And here's a photo of a baby tomatillo. I have hundreds of these little guys now. I think we're going to be swimming in green salsa!

And here's my favorite plant, because it's so big (3-4 feet tall) and beautiful... Mammoth dill!

Clematis sensation

Three years ago I planted four clematis plants around our light post. I understand they need a few years to establish themselves--well, it looks like they're fully established, because this year they're just gorgeous.

The light post is wrapped with chicken wire so that the plants have something to attach themselves to.

Here's a close-up of the four different colored flowers.
