Vegetable Garden Progress June 2013



The tomatoes are getting tall, outgrowing their net!


















Here's a closeup of one of my cucumber plants. You can see a baby cucumber beginning to form.

This is the first time I've tried to upload a video from my own camera!  I wish my hands were not so unsteady.

The First Day of Summer 2013

I have some tiny green tomatoes already!  This year the tomato plants are the best ever.

I have a small garden.  It's enough for me.



Here are some cucumber blossoms.

I planted four pots of sweet basil.  It's one of my favorite herbs.

I Almost Swallowed a Stink Bug!

(From Web)

I almost swallowed one of these monsters!  It was in the middle of the night and I got up to get a drink of water. I did not see that it was in my cup. I took a gulp and felt something in the back of  my throat.
I  coughed it out just in time. Luckily it had not given off its odor yet.

I wonder what would have happened if I'd swallowed it!
I imagine great intestinal irritation.



My Heart Scan Was Good!


This is an actual 3D Multislice CT scan 

The results from my CT-Cardiac exam were great! Dr. Insel called to let me know.
I have no calcium deposits and no blockages. He wants me to see him so he can go over the details.

I didn't have any symptoms but my doctor said it would be good to make sure nothing was wrong with my heart before any problems develop. It was because my father died of a heart attack and my lipids (cholesterol, LDL, Trigycerides...)  are a little high.

Today I can celebrate the good news!
