I haven't posted about my garden in a while, but it's growing. I had to pull all my zucchini and summer squash due to vine borers, but I have other things that are doing well.
The sunflower below is pretty special. Pierce brought it home in a tiny cup as a mother's day gift when he was in kindergarten. I planted it in the garden, and for whatever reason it has come back bigger and better every year since. This year it was probably 9 feet tall.
I have some other flowers around the house that are also doing well. I thought these were really pretty.
I have had good luck with the tomatoes this year. I have some heirlooms that are marvelous. This batch I dehydrated with sea salt and basil (also from my garden).
These little sunburst tomatoes are my favorites! The boys love them too - I leave them on the counter and they munch on them all day long. Pierce will go down to the garden and just stand there, eating them right off the plant. I don't spray them, so I guess it doesn't matter that he does this.
I also have butternut squash (pictured below) growing, as well as cushaw squash. And I have some limas that are almost ready to harvest.
Readers, how is garden season going for you?
