Some flowers we do have growing are
the climbing black-eyed susans that are
trailing up the twine I have around the
The painted lady is also climbing a trellis.
The pineapple sage is looking pretty good. I can't
wait until this blooms in the fall. It has beautiful,
small, bright red tubular flowers.
The regular sage is finally starting to grow.
Zucchini. They're taking over - but I love it!
Grow baby, grow!!
Lemon balm. This is the healthiest of the three
plants we have. Interestingly enough it's the one
I held out the least hope for because it was the smallest,
and at one point was covered in aphids. I had to do a lot
of work on it right off, but I guess it benefited from the TLC.
Okra - it sprouted the quickest (after the zucchini)
but then seemed to stall for a little while. It's finally
starting to grow well.
Tomatoes, with radishes in front. We've already
had several radishes to add to salads.
Baby tomatoes on the Black Prince.
Another unwelcome garden guest has been here.
Can you guess who? Yep, hornworms. We picked
six of the ugly things off last night. Yuck.
One of my least liked garden chores.
These are Rutgers tomatoes I planted for
canning. I hope the plants bounce back.
Cantaloupe. Lots of flowers, but I don't see any
baby cantaloupe yet.
Cilantro. Can't you just taste the pico de gallo?
Don't really know why my oregano looks kind of
pathetic. I've never had any problem growing it before.
Maybe we can blame it on the cat-or the dog.
Some roma tomatoes and a compact, bush
These basils are so cute, and have a great flavor.
It's my first year growning them and I know I'll
grow them again. The may be the only basil I get
this year since my other basil was swallowed by
one of the tomatoes. You have to move the plant
aside to see them.
Some of the Romas.
There are a bunch of them in there.
I can't wait to start getting more stuff off of everything. I don't even like radishes, so I haven't had anything to enjoy yet - except the basil. It was wonderful in the last batch of spaghetti sauce we made. I hope you are all enjoying your own gardens.
