We have had a lot of rain here,
so much so that it has been too wet to work in the garden.
However, the sun has finally come out
and that means time to garden.
I was very glad to see that things had grown besides the weeds.
I found a bloom nestled in our pumpkin plant.
And all the moisture has made the rhubarb very lush and red.
And the bean plants are just beginning to bloom.
Although my tomato plants were a little yellow at first
now they are dark green and have some nice size tomatoes on them.
A few tomatoes have some minor hail damage
but if that is the worst of it I am not going to complain.
The flowers in the cutting garden are also beginning to bloom.
The bright orange of the calendula is so cheery!
This is the first year that I have planted strawflowers.
I got a mix called "Brights"
and they are very bright and cheerful.
I have been told that they dry very well
so I am going to try that later in the season.
My dad had some extra plants so he gave some to me.
He says they are type of daisy.
And some of the roses are just beginning to bloom.
But what is the best of all is the freshly picked food for the dinner table!
