I was going to wait till my sunflowers bloom before I update my garden, but then it might be a couple more days before that happens.
The water plant is still in bloom, it has been for several weeks now. I have many wild birds in my backyard and the birdbath has been a place of drinking and bathing water for them during this hot summer months.
My string beans are coming out now, it’s still too young to be picked.
As of this morning, there are more flowers coming out.
The pickle cucumber vines have taken over the A Frame trellises. I have lots of cucumbers this year which I took some to share with my co-workers. I hope to do pickle cucumbers in the next day or so.
I have many chili pepper plants, some came up by themselves from last year seeds. Chili pepper is packed with all the vitamins and minerals, such as protein, calcium, zinc, beta-carotene, vitamin A, B1, B2, and C. 1 small chili pepper has more vitamin C than 1 lemon or orange. It also contains vitamin A, as much as 50% of the daily recommend dosage, to read more from my previous post.
The Coxcomb flowers also came up on their own, this used to be the flower bed and I decided to plant cucumbers and chili peppers this year. I think they are a lot prettier and healthier looking than me trying to plant it from seeds.
The Passion vines from last year. I didn’t see it at the beginning of spring and thought it didn’t survive the cold winter months. I saw one flower last week and didn’t get to take a picture of it and it closed the next day.
My Roma tomatoes.
The Kaffir lime tree is very healthy this year.
My Hen and chicks bloom a bit early this year.
Lee’s Marigold flowers are like a sunshine to look at, I absolutely love the yellow color.
My bamboo trees that I got from my local temple look a lot healthier after I moved them to a bigger pot.
