    How many cats? The cantaloupe looks good. Nice and healthy.

    I envy your growing season. I'm trying to take full advantage of my few months but some of my crops are not doing great. The tomatoes and peppers, for example. I'm still nursing them along and hopeful.

    I hope the rest of your garden is also doing well.

    I love sq. ft. gardening here in Florida. Our "soil" is sand, so I make my own. Raised beds are great for me and I love container gardening!
