Pretty much everything seems happy; there are flowers on a cucumber vine, both tomatillo plants, and several of the tomatoes. The tomatoes plants have all increased dramatically in size, even the one that had been beaten with a Sunday newspaper. The peppers had gotten a little dry but seem to have perked right back up--- even the one who might be suffering a little bit of transplant shock after I broke its biodegradable planter and scattered dirt and seedlings everywhere.
However... I have not been able to get the roots of our old shrubs out of the ground. Despite patiently digging around and sawing bits off of the first victim, I could not tell what was still keeping it in the ground after a bit more than two hours of effort. So we are trying to get some expert assistance (or at least assistance with a chainsaw.) The replacement bushes are: a flamingo willow, two lilacs (Dwarf Korean and Wonderblue), and a new self-pollinating blueberry bush.
