Hello! I just joined and am also wanting to know how everyone's veggies are doing this cooler/later summer. Especially
peppers, but I'm interested in all veggies and fruit as well. Looking forward to hearing about everyone's gardens and I
will be posting pictures in a bit too.

I never got around to taking all of the pictures I was hoping to take at the height of summer, but I did take a few. So, here we go. I also included a few flower pics as it's been a long winter and flowers rock.

That blue passion flower is really outstanding. You should submit it (and others) for inclusion in the Database.
