I scurried out to the front garden where my veggie patch lies to take some snaps in the late evening sun. I love this time of day. We are the last area of the inland valley to get a coastal breeze according to Sunset Garden Guide. We are zone 9. Every afternoon a nice breeze picks up and cools us down.
One plant of zucchini I find is enough for us. Otherwise it is coming out of your ears.
The first sunflower has opened. This is the multi branch variety great for cutting. It is so tall. The flower is around nine feet tall.
The tomatoes are ripening. These are early girl and true to their name, I have already picked three tomatoes.
A ripening zuchinni.
Hiding in there is a cucumber blossom. The cukes are only about two inches long right now. Won't pick any for a couple more weeks. Last year I didn't buy one store bought cuke for months, we picked so many from our little plot.
Chives thrive year long here but are exploding right now.
This is it. My small veggie plot in the front yard. It had roses in it but I tore them out years ago.
I have so many volunteer tomato plants. I never know what they will be until I see some tomatoes on there.
I'm a bad gardener. My tools are always left where I was working last.
