I'm taking a moment today to share photos from my garden. These range in date from first planting in May to today. This isn't everything we have growing, just some of the photos I wanted to show you. Enjoy!
Catnip flowers - very pretty and something you'd miss if you didn't look closely enough.
Black beans have purple flowers! How very pretty.
Once the beans are fully grown, they are left on the plant to dry. Check occasionally to see if the beans have turned black. Once they have, they are done.
Black beans in the pod.
Wild mint - my favorite type. I also have spearmint but don't like it nearly as much.
Johnny Jump-Up that belongs to my oldest daughter.
Basil ready to flower.
Forget-Me-Nots This is my second year with them. The seed was from last year's crop.
Whenever I see these mimosa blossoms I think of Horton Hears a Who!
Nemesis - Japanese Beetle. He was far flung right after the shot was snapped.
Grape tomatoes ripe for the picking.
Better Boys coming along nicely.
Cosmos - one I grow each year.
Can't recall what these are, but we had them planted with small purple flowers and the effect was very pretty.
