My garden produced its first zucchini! There will be plenty more to come this summer, as it turns out the plant that I thought was a cucumber plant is actually another zucchini plant... so now I have 3!
It was too hot and humid last night to work on my furniture, so I decided to bake something instead. I made zucchini bread of course!
Meanwhile, the carrots are filling in nicely, but the recent drought has been tough on the poor broccoli plants. It's raining a bit today so that should bring them back to life. The blueberry patch is also producing, I am going to pick a bunch tonight and possibly whip up some blueberry something for the office tomorrow.
