Happy Presidents' Day!!!

High atop the Sierra Nevada Mountains, fueled by residual snowboarding adrenaline and patriotic fervor, Brandon Covey and Elizabeth Horowitz got engaged. Happy Birthday, George Washington!

Greenhouse Update

Well, closing in on a month since reporting on budding cucumbers and finally have some further development to report: Several of the female flowers painstakingly pollinated  by paintbrush have developed fruit. One cucumber has reached a length of nearly 8 inches and is nearly ready to harvest. At least 7 others have started maturing.

Getting more blossoms daily.

The tomatoes have also started to set fruit.

I'll be starting tomato and pepper plants for the summer garden this weekend.
