Garden Update July 1

This is the first time I've tried growing dahlias. These are smaller than the 'dinner plate' variety, about 6" in diameter and they are lovely! I'll definitely be planting these again next year.

The tomatoes are growing several inches a day now with plenty of buds. Mmmm, there's nothing like a garden-fresh tomato!

I ate the first few green beans yesterday, there weren't enough for a meal, so I figured I'd just sample to make sure they were ok. And they were.

The peppers and eggplant are enjoying the heat we've had this past week and the sugar snap peas, cukes and zucchini are all beginning to take off. We might even have a strawberry or two if the birds don't beat us to it!

Wouldn't a dhalia soap mold be beautiful?? I'm thinking I've seen one somewhere, but can't remember where. Darn!

Wow everything looks beautiful Kim ! Glad to hear about the cardiac news, get you buttoned up and you'll be as good as new. Funny that is a birth defect that runs in my Father's family. My Dad and all four of his siblings had a child born with it (back in the 60's and early 70's), they all died shortly after birth. My Brother lasted only Nine days. When I was pregnant with Sara Lou, they checked for it and told me if found they would repair it in-utero. Modern medicine.
