I should be checking more frequently for cucumbers. I haven’t been in the garden the last couple of days, and maybe that’s why I’ve been feeling lousy. (Well, it’s not. But being in the garden does make me feel better, and I haven’t been going.) All the little pickle cucumbers are fat little sausages now.

The cucumbers are climbing all over the tomatillos, but the tomatillos are holding their own, yellow flowers still blasting everywhere. And I do have at least one tomatillo growing. There’s this green balloon hanging from the taller of the two plants like a Chinese lantern. It appears to be empty, but I’m confident it will fill. Thanks, pollinators.
