We've been blessed with rain and the weeds are rampant in the garden that two weeks ago was so nicely groomed. Back to the garden for some weed extraction!
The temperature was pleasant and it was a joy to be outside with my fingers in the dirt and to see how my garden was growing . . .
The Glass Gem corn and the Dixie Speckled Butterpea Beans are coming along . . .
The yellow flowers are Rue and the feathery stuff is Bronze Fennel . . .
I save the fennel seed but haven't a clue of what to do with the rue. . .
I sowed nasturtium seeds in the asparagus bed in hopes of abundant, edible blossoms later on . . .forgetting that they bloom better in less rich soil. We'll see. . .
A tiny Cherokee Purple tomato . . .we have high hopes and are dreaming of BLTs . . .
And (below) a Mullein (Verbascum) which is a weed but so architecturally striking that I always leave some to enjoy. Mullein has medicinal uses but I've never explored them. . .
