Let's see what we have...
I love having the echinacea, I'm not sure what to do with it if anything, it's buzzing with tons of bees.
The calendula patch is also buzzing with activity
I also enjoy having lots of zinnias, I planted them in two beds this summer. I also have cosmos, those haven't bloomed yet.
This year our nasturtium came in, last year they didn't do so well. I think the mild spring had something to do with it.
And the sunflowers are oh so close to blooming! I don't know if my mammoth ones will get to bloom this year, lesson learned: those seeds need to be protected from the birds if you're direct sowing outdoors.
Now to the veggies...
Our tomatoes have really taken off
We see a few fruits coming.
We also have our first cucumber
And the beginnings of a summer squash.
Our beans are also looking lovely.
Unfortunately, our peas have run their course - so I will plant something else in that spot - not sure what yet.
Over the weekend I made a new dish that I thought I would share with you, the photo is not so great and I ate it up before checking and retaking the photo...
