Melon Flowers and Purple Alien Vegetables

One of the melon plants has started putting out flowers...

...and even a mini melon!

This is my first year growing kohlrabi.  I received some seeds from a friend who knows I enjoy gardening and who raves about how delicious kohlrabi is.  I'm looking forward to trying it.  It certainly is an odd looking vegetable.  I expected it to grow like a beet or a turnip, with the bulb portion growing in the soil.  Apparently, it grows above the soil, between the main leaf stems.  Neat!  These are going to look like UFOs.


Though this poor tomato plant looks a little feeble, it is producing fruit.

The first tomato to turn red - a Black Krim.


Dry bean pods (Tene's Beans) are starting to form.  :)

It's hard to see in this picture, but the Anasazi beans have started to put out runners like crazy.  Hopefully, they will use each other for support and won't sprawl all over the other vegetables in the garden.
