We've been house sitting / living at my grandmother's house while she is on a roadtrip (I'm jealous, Grandma is living it up in Canada). Right after she left, I added some new plants to her flower garden. I introduced vegetables! Most are summer squash (zucchini, cucumber, eggplant). Here it is:

The big plant on the left is a cucumber, next to it is a bird of paradise (it was already there), and beside that is a zucchini. I'm particularly proud of the zucchini plants, since they came from seed. Of course, this means I planted the whole packet of seeds thinking that only a few would make it. There are now three dozen zucchini plants.
