It's beginning to look (and feel) a lot like Summer! (lots of pics)

Things have been super busy around here, been getting a fresh layer of compost on the beds, checking for pests (thankfully none yet), and waiting. Lots of waiting and I must say I am quite impatient!! But, there are quite a few things growing despite the record high heat we have had.  I think we skipped spring all together and went straight into summer!

L to R: zucchini, crookneck squash, front: banana peppers

the largest zucchini (3-4in)

back on trellis: ambrosia melon, front on tripod: bush cucumbers

cucumber. I have a few this size (3-4in)

my poor apple tree. We thought she was dead after receiving storm and kid damage, 
but she's a fighter!

We also have blueberries, strawberries, grapevine, honeydew, white beans, wax beans, corn, and tons of herbs, but nothing exciting is happening on them.  How are things in your garden growing?
