|Purple...verbena I think. Nice color.|
|Red hot chili peppers!|
The chili peppers are doing great! They seem to love the heat we've been having. I like to add a chili pepper to the dilly beans when I make them to give them an extra kick.
|My first eggplant from seed.|
Got any good recipes? I don't really like to eat them. I just think they're pretty.
|The first zinnia to flower this year.|
For a number of years I have grown zinnias in my yard. The last couple years I did not plant any. This year, I decided I was going to have my zinnias again so I planted them in a cast off garden center pot that came from a shrub we planted last year. The variety is 'Thumbelina' and they are adorable. There are purple and brighter pink and orange blossoms coming. This is the only one that is open now.
|Sugar Baby watermelon...baby.|
Sugar Baby watermelons have been on my 'must plant' list for a long, long time. They come out just the right size for two, or just for me if I've just finished mowing. Sweet and juicy and I can hardly wait until this one is ready so I can dig in. Nothing finer on a hot summer day than sitting in the shade munching on a melon.
|Greenies! Come on, I'm starving!|
I am so impatiently waiting the ripening of the tomatoes! I'm tempted to 'photoshop' a little blush on these guys.
|Bitty, baby cucumbers are so cute!|
One of my garden favorites is pickling cucumbers. Extra cruchy and tasty in salads as well as pickles, these little beauties never fail to satisfy. I'll probably have more of these than I'll ever know what to do with if today's harvest is any indication.
