The very first blossom on my bush zinnias. They (usually) have a profusion of flowers and hold far into the fall.
I think the turnips found some steroids this year. They are on the right side of this bed and the greens are two feet tall! A four-foot wide trellis of Sensation Cosmos is in the center and some Forono beets on the far side.
The morning glories have finally stretched tall enough to start climbing up the tepee trellis. Carrots on either side.
My green/red peppers just can't seem to take off this year. They're spindly and still not very healthy looking.
This is what should be a 16 foot long row of green beans. The first planting yielded very poor germination so I went back over the row and stuck in more seeds in the bare spots. They didn't seem to take well either. I've been sticking bean seeds into every nook and cranny I can find available in the garden . . . and those seem to be doing okay. I'm crossing fingers I'll get enough green beans some how, some way yet this year.
This is my main stand of corn. It has really shot up in the last week. It wasn't even knee-high on the 4th of July. I can hardly believe it's almost two feet tall now.
I planted a new cosmos this year . . . Rubenza. All red, red, red flowers and this is the first one to pop out. I'm so eager for the plants to become big and bushy covered with these gorgeous flowers.
I snapped a picture of golf ball sized (but very green) cherry tomatoes, too, but the picture turned out too fuzzy. The plants are Washington Cherry tomatoes and have always been prolific producing LARGE cherry tomatoes for me.
We had a soaking rain last night. Now warmth and humidity today so I'm expecting the garden is doing some more growing as we speak.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
