While all the rain has made it easier on me because I don’t have to go out there with the hose every day to water, there may be too much moisture on the flowers. They are slowly coming back and blooming again after at least a month of no blooms.
I guess everyone likes strawberries. The japanese beetles got to the strawberry plants, making the leaves look lacey with so many holes in them.
The squash plants are flourishing, and have plenty of blooms, but not actual squashes yet. I hope they make some soon. The beans I planted with them are getting pretty big too.
The nasturtiums like the place where I planted them. They have more leaves now. The broccoli, meh. Maybe next year.
This pepper is going to be on the dinner table tomorrow night. It isn’t yellow yet, but you can tell it would be soon if I leave it out there.
I can not wait to makes these into a tomato sandwich and a salad. It is tempting to pick them today, but I am going to wait one more day.
I am so proud that this basil plant is still alive. I love basil in salads, soups, and pesto.
The eggplant is blooming now. It has such beautiful flowers. I also think the fruits are gorgeous, and love some eggplant parmesean.
The photo is a little on the bright side, but you can see the purple pepper here. It will soon be big enough to pick.
More basil. I told you it is my favorite. This one is lemon basil, and smells so good when you rub the leaves between your fingers.
I love to cut pieces off these two plants and put them soups and salads. They make things taste so good.
The flowers on the plant stand are pretty to see, and smell so good.
I love this pink elephant watering can. I found it at Amazon.com and could not resist. It makes watering fun. OK, I know I’m a sucker for cute. I wish I had a pink flamingo to put somewhere in the garden.
