Although still not remotely tall enough to make the enormous trellis a necessity, the Japanese cucumbers are blooming and fruiting. Hopefully the actual fruit will grow larger than the Barbie-size it is now. 


Also making their presence  known, BLUE LAKE GREENS BEANS!  We bought bush plants because we thought we wouldn't be able to build a large structure the trellis type need  (this was pre-foot vs. inches debacle.) So we weren't sure how/if they would work, but working they clearly are! 


And finally rounding-out the new veggie round-up a good looking tomato, actually about a dozen tomatoes are forming on our deck plant. They seem to have reached their predicted size, but are taking forever to ripen, must not be quite hot enough  for the plant, despite the nursery labeling it a "San Francisco Fog" varietal.  Which is weird because it is WAY WAY WAY hotter in Berkeley than SF, so not sure this so called 'fog' plant would survive at all in the climate for which it is named. Go figure.
