I did almost every single thing wrong in growing these beans. But I learned a lot and the deer are only nibbling at the edges. Next year's goal: make my vegetable garden neater. It looks fine for a 5-year-old, not so fine for an adult.

So many purple perennials. The far left is rosemary but I'm not sure if the others are all the same.

Do I eat it or save it until next year to make new "starts" in the spring? I'm not a sweet potato fan.

It's one of four volunteer melons in my garden. I had to pick this one before its time (I accidentally trampled the vine). One other is definitely a cantaloupe and the final two are probably also pumpkins. I hoped they were watermelons: they're very green. But I think pumpkins don't turn orange until later in the season. To be continued.

It's a nest in a big evergreen shrub in my yard, about eye-level. In the nest is a big green "egg." I call it an egg b/c that's what it looks like but it's huge. Looks more like a smooth oversized black walnut. But there are no black walnuts nearby--that I know of. I don't want to touch the green thing in case it's actually an egg. Somehow I doubt it. To be continued.
I can't remember what this is but I'm going to prune it hard when it's time to prune. Spring, I guess.
It's 3+ feet wide and 5-6 feet tall. Deer don't touch it. Sweet shrub, but it's overgrowing too many other plants. And isn't pruning good/necessary for some shrubs?
Watermelon. About 1/3 of my gardening space was taken over by 2 watermelon plants that I didn't plant.
