The ladies enjoying a morning scratch.

Scarlet runner beans growing up their tee-pees and over the wren house.  I've never grown them before, but I think they're going to be a favorite.

Walking onions, exploding.  I think that's the only way they know how to grow.

Raspberries that need to be picked this very evening, in fact, as soon as the sun retreats just a little.  (That is, if a certain smaller hand hasn't stolen them all!)

Cucumbers ramshackling up their trellis.

Teensy baby tomatoes--they're so cute!

A bowl full of "wave" petunias on the porch--while I've never been a huge fan of their showiness, I'm coming around to their ability to take the heat without fading like more delicate flowers do.

What have you got growing for this new season?
