We have a squash! I walked out yesterday and saw it and I was so excited I ran in to tell Ben. He might have looked at me a bit funny. I may or may not have been jumping up and down... I think I might be more excited by the fact that before squash comes FLOWERS and they are the only source of COLOR in the backyard right now. The Lilies and Agapanthis are close to blooming, but still nothing yet.
We also have jalapenos popping up, but I'm not as excited since I didn't grow these from seed.
This particular sunflower has been going crazy. While the others are only about 2 feet tall, this one is nearly 5 feet tall.
We've been enjoying our berries straight off the plants as they ripen. I would show you a picture of ripe boysenberries but... we've eaten all the ripe ones.
Do you remember these from February? We planted them in the front and figured they would die in a few weeks because that's what little flowers like this do around here... normally.
Apparently, we got the Rabbit variety of Violas. And Pansies. They're all going crazy! I'm actually hoping they will just take over the bed and stay forever. They are so gorgeous and every time I walk out to the mail box I smile when I see them. Really the best present ever. Maybe I should transplant some to the backyard for some color.
