We only saw a few cherry tomatoes.

We took out some weeds and
removed the leaves that are touching the ground.

There are many yellow blossoms, and they will turn into cucumbers soon.  We saw some bees in the blossoms.

One of the cucumber plants was growing toward the Calla Lilly flower plant in the corner of the garden.

So we moved the vine so it will grow along the fence.
