~Close ups in the Veggie garden~

This squash blossom entices bumble bees and other flying insects to sip of it's nectar, and pollinate it's fruit bearing female flowers.
My grape tomatoes are slowly coming on, tantalizing us with their sweet/savory flavor, one at a time!
Bluish green kale leaves with their purple veins and frilly edges are decorative as well as tasty!
A promise of Autumn bounty.  This pumpkin is already showing orange coloration.  It started much earlier than the rest of my baby pumpkins that are no larger than eggs!
