The heat presses on and so the lantana flourishes.
I found this baby bird living in a bush, chirping constantly. To my relief, the mama was nearby and continued feeding it until it had grown enough to fly on his own a few days ago. Does anyone have experience with birds and know why this little one was out of the nest but unable to fly?
This was my first year growing the “mammoth jalapeño” variety. Not only does it look lovely in the garden, but has a beautiful taste in addition to a punch of heat. I thought the whole “mammoth” claim might be a bit gimmicky but these really do make a nice edition to the garden and could easily be grown alongside regular jalapeños.
I was traveling over the weekend and spotted these beautiful petunias. I have some in my own garden, but these just looked particularly vibrant and healthy!
Super sweet 100 cherry, sunsugar, black cherry tomatoes and jalapeño, serrano, and cayenne were ready to harvest this week.
Summer is here and it seems quite fitting that my first Sunsugar cherry tomatoes have ripened. Aren’t they beautiful?
Based on a recommendation of a friend, I decided to grow purslane for the first time. Why have I not grown this before?! It’s beautiful and low maintenance. Looking forward to seeing these bloom all summer.
