First another in the series of reasonably decent pictures of Hudson. Also in this recent section, an encounter (safely behind glass) with one of the newest feline members of the neighbourhood: ninja. Not showing much fear, at all. Wariness, yes. Fear... not so much.

The garden has been a bit less entirely wonderful. The root vegetables are doing quite well, even managed to get a few pods of peas off the one pea seed that germinated. However... one of the garlc plants turns out to not be garlic... one of the two bean plants turns out to not be a bean plant... and the cucumbers are having leaf troubles. I expect maybe cucumber mosaic virus, but I'm not sure. regardless, I think they'll be a bit of a miss this year. The peppers are doing fine, and the tomato plants... oi, weighed down with massive fruits! Which the slugs, snails and neighbourhood cats seem to like.

The basil is (as usual) run riot, which is great. Basil is a wonderful thing.
