Today's take:

• 5 tomatoes

• 25 tomatilloes

• 2 yellow crookneck squash

• 14 stalks of young Florence fennel (too young for anything but the leaves to be any good; they were thinned out for the good of the others)

• 2 big stalks of basil


• Startling number of young eggplants becoming imminent

• First tiny green pumpkin discovered!

Tasks completed:

• Weeding of tomato bed

Secret fears:

• Having already made ratatouille, steamed squash, squash muffins, and squash casserole, will very soon run out of ideas for using yellow crookneck squash

• Am goofing around in garden to avoid doing real, urgent work indoors
