I’ve been a litle remiss in posting, life keeps getting in the way blogging. The nerve!

It’s a beautiful sunny morning, so I grabbed the camera and my coffee and stepped out the back door. There is something for everyone this morning.

I’ll start with the vegetables, but if you wish to jump to the flowers, Scroll down.

Green beens starting to blossom
Hairy Tomato blossoms
Cukes growing up the mesh trellis, so far so good!










The peppers are also doing well.

Giant Marconi (sweet)
Hot banana










Greens are a mixed bag. They are growing well, but something is eating them, I will put up a short fence this weekend.

Chard, lettuce, and shallot
Lettuce is happy
Rabbit(?) damage




Green tomatoes in the Growbox










All in all I am rather pleased with the Squarefoot garden attempt. So far so good.

Flower Power!
This week the lilies burst onto the scene.

Good view of Stamen and Carpel. The Anthers will stain fabric, be careful!











I cut this Clematis down to 6″ tall last fall. It’s over 8′ tall now.












One of my favorites, Coreopsis “Moonbeam” just starting to bloom, in a week or so it will be a golden carpet.









That’s what I’m up to this morning, now I’m off on a field trip. More about that later!

Until next time, Keep Digging & Eat Well!
