The Jack-Be-Little pumpkins are clinging to the trellis nicely and are just the color of a pale, harvest moon.
The sugar snap peas are nearly done. They are so delicious sauteed with a bit of garlic and red pepper flakes and finished off with a teaspoon each of soy sauce and sesame oil. Mmm. And Sunday, I removed the peas and stuffed the pods with garden vegetable cream cheese for an appetizer.
I planted five cucumber plants. One survives. I'm suspecting porcupines were the culprit. It seems like I should be upset about that, but they are just so adorable. It's hard to be angry with any creature that cute! But the one remaining plant has some cucumbers, all about 1-inch long, growing on it.
Onions, glorious onions!

The jalapenos are thriving. Jalapeno jelly, anyone?
