Our sunflowers are coming up wonderfully this year. This picture was taken with last year's supply of sunflowers. The sunflowers didn't do much last year. I don't know the problem, but this year I planted more and more and more sunflower seeds just to make sure we didn't have a repeat failure. I see lots of different types of sunflower seeds poking up their pretty little petals down in our garden area. We didn't get as much done in the garden on Mother's Day as I had hoped, but we sure had a nice day. I have spent much of my day out there today working hard. I am hoping a husband or a son will come home and get the tiller going this evening so I can finish up the planting in the big garden. We have had so much rain this year and I am so thankful, but it has slowed us down a bit planting the garden.
Our table is filled with fresh garden lettuce of all different varieties, spinach, broccoli, green onions, and a few strawberries. The squash, cucumbers, okra, and zucchini plants are doing nicely, but still way too small to produce anything as of yet. I have an entire bed full of beautiful peas. I also have some beets, radishes, and cabbage plants that are growing. I will be succession planting more lettuce and spinach very soon. I may also do another planting of squash and zucchini. My goal for tonight is to plant green beans. Surely, I can get that done!!!!
grace and peace,
