These little tomatoes (left) are from one of my homegrown plants started in February and planted in tomato cans. They are tall, not terribly full plants but it looks like they will be producing tomatoes and that is all that counts.
I did buy some yellow squash at the farmer's market yesterday and am so glad that I did. It was simply amazing. I sauteed green bell peppers and summer squash and served it over short grain organic brown rice for dinner last night along with fresh ears of corn (for the boys -- I don't like corn).
I have four zucchini plants. This is the first fruit I have seen since I planted these 8 weeks ago. I have a neighbor who makes the most amazing zucchini relish, and to be honest, I look forward to making some of this myself this year. I will wait until the end of the zucchini harvest when we are all sick of zucchini and they are getting bigger and bigger because we don't want to eat anymore and just leave them in the garden. And stuffed squash -- oh the possibilities.

My little bit of the sub-tropics here in Connecticut. My hibiscus bush is about 8 feet tall now.
Requires no maintenance, pruning, nothing, it just blooms year after year.
