I, too, have been doing more posting on others' posts (and, sadly,  not as much of that as I'd like.)

This plant of yours looks like stinging nettle, so be careful tending it. I just had a delightful nettle pesto this week. I used purchased nettles from a local CSA. One wears gloves to prepare them, and boiling the leaves kills the sting. I planted some nettles intentionally, not in my SFG of course, but I want to give them another year to establish themselves so I have enough to harvest my own without hurting the patch too much.

As you can see the Pumpkin Vines are doing amazing. You can see how big the leaf is compared to my buddies hand.

In these last two you can see one of the flowers, as well as the end of the vine where it grows further.

So many more Jalapeno's then last season.  last season i got 9 off multiple plants.  these are grown from those seeds.   Much happier this year.   I guess they didnt like being near potatoes.. or shaded by tomatoes.

Here you can see the Hungarian Pepper's are also doing very very good.. much better then last season, again these are grown from seeds from last years scant harvest.

Here is the Lettuce Flower, which by-the-by is very tasty with a tad bit of Cesar dressing.
   and the Lettuce that i harvested a couple of weeks ago.. All my neighbors were happy.. i dropped them all off a bag of fresh washed leaves. Smile

Things here have grown mostly unattended with just rain for water.. though I do keep the tomatoe troughs filled.   Mostly been over at moms doing DEMO work.. as her basement flooded on monthersday with black sewer water.. were ripping out everything.. and she decided to replace the ceiling as she was already doing the floors and walls.  So alot of demo work.

Nice!  Love the pics!  Is that black seeded Simpson lettuce, Greenbeard?  I like to try the flowers and seed pods of stuff too.

Funny enough the lettuce.. was some kind of organic head lettuce i bought at home depot.. but it is certainly a leaf lettuce.. no heads developed.. even for the one at moms that had 9 full squares to sprawl out in.    I'll see if i wrote it down somewhere though Scorpio.

Far as the stinging nettles.. i always thought that was just another common name for the thistle's i love so much.    I did pull it, because it was closing up in on the raspberries.   of which ive a had a few fruits.. not enough to do anything with this season.. but enough to show it was happy and alive.   the wildlife enjoyed most of the fruits.. i ate a couple raspberries.       

Mom and dad raspberries are doing great.. as are the grapes.. ill take some pictures tomorrow in the daylight.   I just bought a kayak and got it licensed/registered.. so im gonna head out on the three lakes within a good paper airplane glide from my place.

Your welcome sanderson, glad that they are enjoyed.   Ill do a few shots of the tomatoe forests also Smile  Need new batteries for camera.
