Holy Crap, It's a Green Bean!

Look at this (if you can see it despite my nonexistent photography skills):

Can you see it? It's a real-live green bean pod. Soon we will be eating this green bean. Hopefully there will be others.

And look at the size of this fruitless squash plant!

Nestled under the graceful green canopy are three tightly folded yellow blossoms. I never saw them in all their glory; the squash plant seems really secretive about its beauty for some reason. But maybe, just maybe I'll soon find some yellow squash concealed under the protective leaves. I'm not giving up yet!

Finally, here are our baby tomatoes and their older siblings.

On the left are two tomatoes that might be full grown and hopefully will ripen soon. On the right, just underneath the Topsy Turvy planter, are two tiny new tomatoes. The biggest is approaching the size of a nickel.

By the way, we've had the plucked Roma tomato in the window for nearly a week now, and it shows no sign of ripening. Well, most of the time it's been in the sun, but Allyson likes to "plant" it with the marigolds and put it in other more bizarre places. I think we'll just cut it open and see what it looks like inside; that was my original plan.
