grasses, helianthus, succulents, and grapes

after yesterday's rain and heat there was a cool off today with temperatures about twenty degrees cooler...the soil is still moist and the plants are taking a break from the growth spurt the weather provided...the jerusalem artichokes in the bed of my truck are doing just fine thanks ( they are being a nuisance elsewhere )...and their cousins the sunflowers are just popping up ( second photo )the cucumbers are booming along every bit as well as those in the community garden..and there is another pair of cousins out there ( actually more even than that...there's mashua and nasturtiums too )....the bear paw maize and some teosinte are looking akin...and the last photo is of some extremely young concord grapes...jelly on the hoof.
