This year I attempted to add some flowers to my garden to attract insects. The nasturtiums in pots and fence baskets haven't bloomed (many appear to be a lunch for birds or small rodents), but my zinnias are finally starting to bloom.
The last of the spring beets need to be pulled soon.
I planted a random Forrelenschlus lettuce in the shade of the Polbigs. It had been eaten to the ground by a pest earlier this spring, but now it's doing well.
Still no broccoli head, but the plants are definitely growin.
The black beauty zucchini plant is full of flowers.
Cherry tomatoes - probably Blondkopfchen. I did a terrible job with labeling this year.
Eight-ball zucchini. Just picked two last night, and this one will be ready in a day or two.
Slim Jim eggplant. First time growing eggplants in my garden.
Cucumber flowers. I think I've spotted cucumber beetles in my garden, so I'm going to have to be super vigilant - when it cools off.
The leaves from our Italian Giant parsley are huge!
We have more basil than we know what to do with.
This is my first time growing celery. It's looking great.
Here's a picture of the stalk.
