I’m very happy with how the garden is going, we are at the end of June and have been harvesting asparagus, peas, herbs and tons of greens. The Florida like weather has been helping – sun all day a bit of rain in the afternoon. A lot of our flowers are also blooming. And the first of the tomatoes, squashes and cucumbers are coming out.
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…
