June 5 : Environment -- My garden of course.
Clockwise from top
| swiss chard | squash | herbs | mint |
Here's our very first squash blossom! Once they start blossoming, there's no stopping these plants! My marigolds are right next to them, and I'm so afraid they'll be overshadowed by the squash! My marigolds need plenty of sunshine!!
June 7 : Bright
My entry for today is our very first nasturtium! Did you know you can eat the flowers?
But after seeing the flowers, I don't think I can bring myself to eat them.
J is a little less sympathetic. This one he plucked right off and popped into his mouth. :(
June 9 : From down low
Somewhere on the ground, the Swiss chard is quietly growing.
I just love how Swiss Chard looks. Especially up close.
The hues, the patterns of the veins, the contrast of the yellows, greens and reds.
a very uninspiring picture of our harvested green beans.
But they do taste oh so delicious!
That's all folks!
