A few things growing in our garden! By the way, zinnia people, please tell me how you do it. I have tried zinnias nearly every summer and only twice have had good success. This year, zero of my zillion seeds came up - so sad. I always plant a ton of zinnias hoping for huge beautiful bouquets all summer and everyone I ask says they are the easiest thing to grow. Hmmm, boo.
Also, I've cut hydrangeas and brought them in this year like I always do and they are dying in less than 48 hours inside. What?! The first flowers I cut and brought in lasted their usual week but subsequent flowers have wilted very quickly.
On the other hand, our blueberry bushes are loaded, can't wait for them to ripen up!
After taking Rachel to the farmers market she declared she wanted a stand there to sell her own things. Um, hmmm, pretty sure we'd have to get serious about gardening to do that. I think we are more of minimalist gardeners - we do the bare minimum to see a few results.
It's not that I don't want to garden, I just have this very large aversion to heat and bugs. There ya go, I said it. We've enjoyed our mint and lettuce so far this year and just harvested our first onions. Rachel accidentally picked our green pepper so we'll enjoy that soon too!
