Looking at last year.. we’re well behind. For comparison, in 2015 the zucchini was already over the top of the 8′ trellis. It’s not 5′ tall yet this time.

Today has been one of the nicest, sunniest days we’ve had in a while. There are supposed to be at least a few more nice days coming up. I doubt we’ll equal last year’s overall production, but the improved weather should help pick things up.

A few of the plants are doing at least ok. The Oregon Spring are first on the scene, as usual:

The Tromboncino are growing. Hopefully we’ll be able to start harvesting in a week or so:

The flowers in the whiskey barrels are doing well. The nasturtiums have completely overrun their container:

The tomatillos have lots of flowers too:
