First red tomato and tallest Sunflower (I have ever grown)
The stalk on this sunflower is like “Jack and the Beanstalk” two inch wide at the thickest point. It is so tall…we do not know how tall…the hubs think at least 12 feet.
As I was watering and generally snooping around my plants this morning …I found this…a spot of red in a field of green…YAY!!! They are turning red. Getting my jars ready for canning.
My newest “freegin” acquisition…a old broken down wheelbarrow. I am going to plant many different varieties of mint in it. Since “everyone” (who is that anyway) says that it will take over the garden. Better safe than minty…hee hee
Don’t tell Linus or Charlie Brown…we do have a pumpkin patch…No Great Pumpkin yet though.
Harvested Chamomile today to dry for tea.
Making Dilly Beans tomorrow and
More cucumbers….already made Spicy Dill Slices and have Sweet Chunk Pickles fermenting on my counter….think I will make Dill spears.
Starting my seedlings for our fall planting…
And just received my Baker Creek Seeds..which I need to get started after I finish this posting.
Actually time to start clearing out some of this to get ready for the direct sowing for fall.
Happy Summer Garden Fun!
