Thanks JoeK.  I've not tried editing existing pictures, but they sure would be easier to look at rotated and saving space by lowering picture size to 1000 pixel width is always good.  If it is any trouble, don't worry about the ones you've already posted.

Looks like the obvious option is to just delete them from the post and then replace them resized and rotated.  It'll take a little time to go through and fix them, but no that long. I'll get around to it...

Got the pics resized and rotated. Added a lot more detail to the descriptions too. I think I got a lot of my mental "notes" consolidated up front in these first few posts. I took a lot of pictures this summer and will show some progression sequences and highlights. gonna have to get sorted out and posted later though.
questions or feedback welcomed.

OK finally got some time and went through resizing photos. Hope this isn't too much. I can thin the herd down some more if appropriate, I know this forum is about solar, not gardening per se.  Way I see it plants are some of the best solar collectors you can employ. They take the sun, and miraculously convert the energy to food and so many other useful things.  I did start resizing them down smaller since there's so many...Thanks for the nice comments I received so far. don't be shy I'd love to answer any questions as best I can.
On with the show

July 26, day after Mr. Bear broke off half the little apple tree and then decided the green, not even close to ripe, apples were not to it's liking...

pink flowers on the right are yarrow, a domestic variety that was established before I moved in here. The wild, white variety grows all over the mountainsides and is preferred for medicinal use. EXCELLENT for minor cuts or burns among other uses. Bees still like the pink stuff though and its pleasant to look at and hardy as can be. the tomato is already showing the explosive growth it would continue all season. probably because I fed it so much vermicompost (worm poo) as well as numerous doses of compost tea.

July 27, the new bed from the OP, the yarrow in full gory with sunflowers along the fence already chest high, and a nice set of Beaver dam peppers. They ripened slow as molasses but turned out Delicious with a nice moderate heat.
