Fall plantings doing well

It's been pretty quiet in the garden until recently. I was watching seeds sprout. Now my hard work has finally paid off. All the fall plants are doing well with the exception of two cucumber plants which I yanked in frustration. I have one nervous cucumber plant that despite its appearance, produced a cucumber to prove its worth. It's staying for now, but I have my eye on it. The cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, green beans, onions, carrots, and tomato are all looking productive. I actually have tomatoes on the plants and the beans will be ready to pick very shortly. Let's take a walk through the garden together...
Green beans are almost ready!

My cucumber plant will be in a "pickle"
if it doesn't start producing! 

Overload of Louisiana Satsumas will be ready shortly

Trying my hand at growing onions this season. So far, so good!

Sweet peas are a family favorite. We often eat them right
off the vine while standing in the garden. 

Fennel gone wild! 

more flowers for the butterflies

Ah ha! Found these beauties yesterday. My eggplant got its second wind!

Gardens 6, 7 & 8

Look who is living on my fennel plant! Beautiful Black Swallowtail caterpillars!
