This hollyhock is actually more purplish than the pink in the picture.
|Back garden looking SW|
The back garden really is becoming a jungle. The corn is tasseling and I've spotted the beginnings of some ears. Hollyhocks are blooming, the carrots and parsnips are still blooming and setting seed, in the lower left you can see the red burgundy amaranth.
|Amish Paste Tomatoes|
The plums are almost ready; a few had bird pecks and fell off already, can't wait for the rest to ripen!
The summer apples are coming along really well. Best crop this tree has ever had!
|Baby Blue Hubbard|
The Baby Blue Hubbard squash on the compost pile are growing well (along with the cantaloupes planted with them) but it looks like they need a shot of iron supplement.
|my cheap gazing ball|
Under the peach tree is my cheap gazing ball; an old light globe sitting on a copper carafe stand.
The waterlily is blooming some more.
The peaches on the tree are still quite firm, but really getting some color to them.
|broken branch of peaches|
I counted and there were actually 28 peaches on this branch. I definitely need to do a better job of thinning!
