I don't know if it is the weather or I forgot how to garden but my veggies this year are lagging. I have picked only a few tomatoes, a couple squash and lots of cucumbers but they taste blah. That may be the variety.
Oh, but my flowers. Thank goodness for them. They are making up for my lagging veggies. Last night I thought to myself maybe next year I will leave the veggies to the farmers and just grow all flowers.
This is actually a carrot that got left in the soil and has flowered. I thought it looked sort of like Queen Anne's Lace.
And this morning early just before the sun came up I was out enjoying the last bit of cool before the heat of the day and the mums are exploding. Once they are done I will shear them off, feed them and they will be glorious again by fall.
