What is life, after all, without a little risk? Delta, the largest of our three cats.

@Altivo: Iris from our late friend Izetta's garden. We have three of her 12 cats as well.

Making Picalilli, a sweet pickle relish without cucumbers. It has cabbage, green tomatoes, sweet peppers, onions, and spices.

This year's largest beans. The straight one is 12 inches (30.5 cm) and the curved one is 13 inches (33 cm) Scarlet runner, quite tasty, with bright red flowers.

I voted. US citizen? Then you should too. It really matters this time.
