Grow Dammit Grow, part 7, a Michigan garden tour

As if I haven't bored you enough with my garden, I thought I would show you a few of our friend's gardens. 

First up, a Big 'ole Michigan garden.

 Tomatoes, peppers, squash, herbs, cucumbers
you name it, it's in there
I brought seedlings when I visited in May.  One of my Yellow Pear tomato seedlings growing tall.
One of my King of the North Pepper seedlings with its first pepper!
Cherry tomatoes, banana peppers, and basil...
