It’s been more than two weeks since the last post, but then, I started this post on the 6th and today is the 8th, so you can kinda see how it’s been going around here…
The 2013 post includes the “search favorite” picture: “Girl Cat With Bags Of Green Stuff”:

Also — “Green Stuff” wasn’t legal in Washington state at that time, which I’m sure contributed to the popularity of the photo.
The garden is finally now producing. We had a smallish midweek harvest:
The Oregon Spring are far and away the best and earliest producers this year:
The Taxis are sharing a box with the Oregon Spring. They’re “next”:
The “overview” picture. Shortly after this photo we cleaned wonky leaves out of the bottom of the tomato plants. Next week’s picture will look very different:
Note the basil on the far right of the overview picture — we’ve been trimming it back far more aggressively this year and it seems to like it. A closeup:
I feel like we could trim the basil twice a week at this point and it would just grow faster. Maybe we’ve been “doing it wrong” all along.
The Yellow Pear tomatoes are starting to ripen (bottom right) — pictured with Sun Golds:
The Paul Robeson are rocking. I have high hopes that they’ll taste good:
Bell Peppers of some sort in the foreground. So far not many have been “bored”. We’ll see:
The cucumbers are now producing 2-3 fruits every couple of days:
