And here's the "after" panorama of the backyard:

In the meantime we've gotten lots of eggplants - I keep picking them small as they seem to have glossy, taut skin then, which gets wrinkly as they get older.
It's still not been very sunny, and only moderately warm but humid. Sprayed a couple of times as the caterpillars were chewing holes in the tomatoes, green as they were. But at least they're on their way now.... the trusses on the grape tomatoes are filling out well and even the beefsteaks are starting to show a little orange tint to them now. I think the beans are nearly done and the zucchini seems pretty variable in quality but is still producing.
