Garden Bounty

The garden is booming this year - with sunflowers.   Everything else is a little unhappy about all the rain.   We have rampant romularia and other fungal problems in the rhubarb, beans, tomatoes, etc.   Plus mega bug problems with the eggplant and squash.

But the sunflowers, zinnas and marigolds are glorious.  And for that I am very happy.


  1. Love the sunflowers and zinnias! Some of my favorite to plant for the bees. They probably love them too =)

  2. I love those flowers. The bumblebees are all over them, but the honeybees have been elsewhere. We've had a lot of rain and there must be stuff blooming in the woods that they like better, because these gardens are right next to the apiary. I have 6 colonies this summer and I see very few honeybees at these flowers. Weird.

  3. How much squash you want? We're kind of overrun... :P

    1. I've seen your pile! If we were closer, I'd totally take more. You have to try the Choc Zucchini Cake. You'll wish you had more...

    2. I plan to make the zucchini cake very soon!
      (Well, then. I'll just have to hand deliver them or something... how well does squash mail?)
