I am tickled pink!  This afternoon, while clipping herbs for a marinade, I spotted several mature green beans!  The few plants that germinated after my poor first planting have begun producing, and there are enough for dinner tonight!  The “Teeny Zucchini” seemed ready to harvest, as well as a handful of yellow beans and one tomato. 

The vegetable patch has been put on notice that I now expect great things from it!
