Vegetable Gardening Progress - Early Summer

I posted recently about the three different types of garden beds that I have on the homestead.  All the vegetables have grown quite a bit in the last two weeks.

The raised bed garden, with rotting wood as the inside base, is doing well, especially the tomatoes.  These tomato plants have the largest green tomatoes of all my tomato plants.
Ground cherries.  Note the green paper lantern shapes, each will have a little round fruit inside.
The ground cherries are also doing well, with several lantern shaped pods on each plant.

Staycation

We've just finished our second annual staycation.  For one week starting on Canada Day, July 1st, we camped in our backyard and explored Eastern Ontario and Quebec on day outings.  Our staycation includes camping in the backyard.  We pop up our camper trailer in the backyard, get our fire pit going, clean up our small pool, and lay out a nice country table cloth over the picnic table.  Here's the activities that we did during the days.
