Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Volunteers Part II
Here are some of the fruits of the volunteers in my perennial garden.
Butternut squash. I hope this one grows. The first one was eaten by slugs.
Unknown squash - possibly an acorn?
Another unknown squash.
Tomatoes, variety unknown. The plant is perfectly healthy.
What Emily thought was a cucumber looks like it may be a cantaloupe.
This one is not a volunteer. I bought these pepper plants at the farmers' market, but neglected to remember the kind. I know it is supposed to be hot. Haven't picked any yet to try.
