Welcome to Camp!

We were camping on Saturday night and this awesome creature and a second one decided to join us. They passed right by camp. The moose were munching on trees and stayed around the area for a long time.
I've been having computer problems - modem crashed, the new modem doesn't play well with my main computer. Hopefully we'll get everything working soon!
Smiles to all!

Tomatillo Lanterns

This is my first year to grow Tomatillos.
I didn't know they were going to be humongous plants,
somehow I had the idea they were ground cover...
Didn't do my research!
What I've learned is they grow big
and they grow zillions of yellow blossoms
then around the blossom a lantern grows.
The lantern is empty at first
then starts to fill with the fruit.
Here is a shot of the plants.
I did research just enough (the worker at the nursery told me)
to know you need to plant 2 plants for pollination.
And below, the cherry tom and a Jack bomb.

Happy growing to all!
