The ladies are all living together, mostly at peace.  Gladys is still brooding, and Emily has joined her.

The broccolini has gone way to seed.  I'm hoping it will reseed itself for a fall crop.

My one squash is hanging tough, with a bottom-less wine crate protecting it from errant, dust-bathing chickens.

We're starting to get a few baby tomatoes.  The lavender is full of blossoms and bees.  The bean teepees are starting to look like proper bean teepees.  And I think we just might get a handful of raspberries this year.

The walking onions are starting to pop open.  The garlic is coming along.  The sunflowers are about as tall as my child.

As always, there's some weeding and watering that could be done.  But, for now, my garden is a nice place to be.
