I started a seed experiment on Friday. I put two seeds from every package into a bag to see if they would sprout. I have 40 packets so this way I can throw out any that aren't good anymore. It's only been two days and some have already sprouted!
I also threw some ground cover seeds in the garden on friday.

Tall Sunflowers

The sunflowers are getting really tall! Simba had to watch from the deck. He'd rather be in the garden.
Pumpkin plant. Spiders get in my way when I walk around the garden!
Zucchini has blooms but doesn't look that strong.
I've got beans now and still some peas left.

Sunflower bud

The corn has a tassle but it's not very tall.

It's raining again and the bean blooms have turned into beans! I am still eating peas too.

This is the bud on the sunflower.

I picked blackberries again and Mark made another pie. I love blackberry pie!

Waiting for sunflowers

The sunflowers are really getting taller. I'm still eating the last of the peas.
The kale is blooming the pretty yellow flowers that the bees love.
The thistle are starting to bloom.
The sweat peas smell really good.
Next year's raspberry canes are looking good.
