The rest of the garden is doing great- I've got about 15 female cucumber flowers, but not a single male. . . I just need one. . . I think I remember having this problem 2 years ago with these cukes too.
Golf ball sized tomatoes on most of my plants, and so far no bacterial speck.
The leaf lettuce is still kicking.
Sugar snap peas are going gangbusters. I need to find some recipes to use them up.
Haricot verts- oooh, they're coming along. . . we will have tasty green beans on the table in a few days. yum!
Peppers and eggplant are starting to flower, and the Chilly Chili's have a few peppers even.
Carrots- wonderful greens, but nothing under the earth yet.
Marigolds- I love the jaguars, they look awesome.
Amber kiss and other violas are blooming too.
Giant Cactus zinnias are blooming and lots more buds coming! State Fair zinnias have buds
It's coming along! Can't wait 'til tomato season!

Eggplant in the middle, one renegade blooming onion from last year, along with a zinnia, a few snaps, some marigolds, and a dahlia in the front.Bed L- lettuce in front (note one variety is missing- went to seed). Cukes on the trellace, peas going like gangbusters in the background. Zinnia in the back, leeks on the left, marigolds, snaps, and peppers on the right. Bed T- Cherokee Purple, Earl's Faux, Brandywine, and Kellogg's Breakfast tomato varieties in the back. Parsnips on the left, zinnias on the right, Edamame scattered throughout. Chilly chili peppers and snaps in the front. Next, on to the individual photos:
Peas- going crazy right now. Finally.
Carrots. . . I love how delicate their greenery is.And last but not least, Z is for zinnia. One of my favorite flowers in the garden budding. . .
