It is exciting to see what is happening in the vegetable garden now. Many plants are bearing veggies and tomatoes. I still don’t know what this one will be. I thought the shape was closer to a spaghetti squash, but it seems to be growing more orange, so it is likely a pie pumpkin. We’ll see as it gets bigger and more ripe.
I have three acorn squashes, all in different stages. Two are pretty small like this one.
Another one is getting close to harvesting size.
I think this one will be a butternut based on its shape so far.
Heirloom tomatoes are coming along, getting larger but not ripening yet.
It looks like there will be an abundance of small cherry tomatoes, yum!
More and more! Lots of salad goodness in the future. Several of these plumes of little tomatoes have 8-10 cherry tomatoes on each one.
The hydrangea is blooming like there is no tomorrow, with beautiful full flowers in lavendar and blue.
Some of the gorgeous large blooms are bluish purple.
Yellow snapdragons made another appearance.
The dusty miller continues to put out pretty tiny yellow blooms.
New this week, the coneflowers or echinacea began blooming.
Oliver came by for a sandwich more than once.
The pansies continue to be happy.
The purple calibrachoa is blooming merrily.
I have two dahlias that survived the winter and had two little blooms. The bugs like them, though, and they get eaten up pretty quickly. I had to flick one off this bloom to get a picture of it.
My orchid looked like it was going to bloom again, but the flower bud shriveled up and fell off. Now it has two more, and I put it outside to enjoy the heat and humidity we are having now.
I hope the orchid likes the summer heat, but it is much to humid for me to spend much time outside right now. Some evenings it will cool off enough for a short time on the veranda, but not many. I’ve not been out in the early morning lately either. It looks inviting though, doesn’t it?
What’s going on in your garden?
