I too love daisies. When I was a kid we made the flower wreaths by them and some other wild flowers.


White foxclove:




Pink ones are open too:




Dianthus barbatus:




Chamomile for the evening teas:




Shark fin melons are flowering. They are smaller than they should to be but its because cold period at the June. Well, they are still alive.




Squash also flowers:




I bought 3 squash seedlings:



That one is in the frame, others with shark fin melons in the compost bed.

Now that's kind of funny. You will have tomatoes soon and my neighbor just pulled up his tomato vines this morning because they were through producing for the year. Just another good example of living down here in Lower Alabama.

Hehe. Surely Lower Alabama would be better for my tomatoes than this cold, north Finland...

...specially when most of the days at this summer have been like this

But I am not moving anywhere.

Saliha, your peonies are spectacular!

My grandmother had them and I was always fascinated with them. But they always came with ants, who sometimes made it into the house when my grandmother put the cut flowers on the dining room table.

Yours look ant-free.

Everything is so green... I will miss this color at the winter again but now its time to enjoy about it.

Herbs and flowers: hyssopus officinalis, lovage, peppermint, chamomile, dill, catnip mint, sun flowers).




Enough herbs for the whole year:


The old iron cauldron is now somewhere under the flowers and herbs:

It has hidden quite well.

(Iron cauldron at the spring without plants




Veggies grow bigger and bigger:


Shark fin melon. It has many buds.


It fills its box quite well and makes new brances to other directions:

I had to give up my garden at the community garden. The price jumped from $25 a year to $120. We had 8 plots and had downsized to 3. The main thing is that it was simply too much for me to handle by my self. It was becoming a burden and since I have a large backyard I decided to grow at home.

^^ I know that feeling. I had before at the country side much bigger garden but after some years it didnīt feel any more as a nice hobby but like being in the labor camp. And as usually, I made it bigger and bigger every year. Smaller garden in the city is easier to take care. Now I have also time to enjoy about it, not only work in there.

Saliha and Lee - Your gardens look wonderful - elegant! I so envy you the time and space to have such lovely places to grow things like you do - you're both such spectacular gardeners. I can't persuade dw that gardening would be something she'd enjoy, though. Sure wish she'd give it a try but the growing season is somewhat short here. Potatoes, anyone?

We are growing beets, radishes, onion, leeks, tomatoes, chard, carrots, yellow wax beans, lettuce, plus an herb garden. And of course the potatoes. I planted red, blue, and yellow varieties.

I was dead-heading my window boxes and was struck by the lovely color combination of deep purple petunias and yellow-green coleus.

In the photo, the petunias look blue. Still pretty, but better in real-life.

And I added a photo of my first two baby white eggplants of the season. I love this variety! They look like literal "egg" plants!

Sunflowers have tiny buds on the top. Their seeds are from the bird feeder - the birds didnīt eat all seeds but dropped few of them to my garden. I have to remember to leave the seeds from those sunflowers to birds at the autumn as they were their gardeners, not me.

I believe that every garden needs at least one sunflower! They are such happy flowers, and make me smile!

Smell great, too!

I leave the seed heads on until the birds (or squirrels) have eaten all the seeds, Saliha.
