The good

This is one of two artichoke plants. The other is not quite as far along. I wasn't expecting to get any artichokes this year because I read that they must go through a winter before they will produce. I guess the cold snap earlier in the year fooled them into thinking that they had wintered over.

I think that this is a parasitic wasp sitting atop of a radish leaf. Parasitic wasps are good guys so I hope he hangs around.

The early girl tomatoes are starting to produce. I trimmed the tomatoes over this past weekend; It seems to have done some good.
