The tomatoes are going crazy. Oregon Spring is in the lead if you count size of plant and number of fruit, but Big Beef was the first to form fruit. The cherries must have hundreds of blooms!

We have a new addition to the family! A kitten. He showed up on our carport last week, mewing in the heat, thirsty and extremely hungry. Naturally we brought him inside. I posted a Craigslist ad, and the next day found his owner. But... between the time he got lost, and found by us, the woman had told her little boy the kitten had "gone to heaven" and had replaced him with two new kittens! To be fair, she was told he'd been hit by a car. But, her husband said "no way," to getting this one back. I wonder what she would have done if we had thrust him back to her? The shelters are all full with kittens, and the county one has a respiratory infection running through the kitten kennels. So, it is unlikely he would have made it into adoption. His name is Benny, short for Bensonmum (movie: Murder by Death). He is three months old. Edward the Goldendoodle wants to eat him. Seriously. It's a game of musical pets around here!
