While gardening this afternoon, I found a tomato growing on one of my plants, and the potatoes are pushing through the surface!

Finally got about a doz. grape tomatoes. Hubby picked 16 bell peppers (not big enough to stuff ) & a few more tomatoes. I cubed & diced 5 red ( from Sat.) & 2 green( were so small I thought I would have to toss but I tasted & they were good)  peppers for the freezer.  I saw more dill came up( about 4 in. high) & the onions are getting bigger.

Continuing to enjoy reaping early AM and eating it later. I planted at different times so that I could enjoy the fruits of my labor as long as possible

The heavy downpours rearranged the soil and I had to add soil to cover roots again

Hubby picked a small bag of bell peppers & another of tomatoes, all were on the small side but ripe. I was going to dry some celery so went out & snipped the dill that sprung up & cut more parsley, so all three are drying.

I put two bushes in the ground yesterday.  I had said I was cone planting this year but the star magnolia and a hydrangea were half off.  So for under $10.00 each I got two plants that I hope will fill in nicely.
I think (fingers crossed) that two of the Tree Peonies that I thought were dead are making a comeback.  I cut them way back and I see little buds at the base.  I hope it is from the Tree Peony rather than from the rootstock it was grafted onto.  We will see in the spring.
The Dawn Redwood I planted has done very well.  I think it has grown at least a foot this summer.
The Filberts that I planted one is looking good the other two are a little iffy.  Again will mulch and wait to see what happens in the spring. Thinking about it I am sure the critters will get any nuts before I do if they produce.
I also planted a Catalpa that a deer nibbled on but that may have helped it the Catalpa has grown about a foot as well.
Three other bushes I put in a Bottle-brush Buckeye and two Sumac plants are holding their own.

So I guess the old saying about plants is holding true.
The first year they sleep, the second year they creep, the third year they leap.

If they all make it through the winter it will be wonderful.
