Summer gardening

Thought I’d share what’s going on in the garden right now.  First a couple of what I think is milkweed after they’re done blooming that I found on the walking path near the cabin.

The bee balm are about at their peak right now.

Check out my humongoloid rhubarb plant (time to harvest again!!) from the inside and from the outside.

Our veggie garden is coming along!  We’ve got tomatoes, cukes, beans, basil and a pepper plant(basil and pepper plants not visible).

Early summer blooms and plants

There’s alot going on in my garden right now and there are some really beautiful things blooming as well.  Here are but a few pics of them along with our veggie(but mostly fruit as it happens) garden.

The mailbox garden with Stella D’oro day lilies, tiger lilies and moonbeam coreopsis:

That cuke is headed for the fence:

I think we maybe should have thinned the beans along the fence?

Here’s what days upon days of rain, rain and more rain gets you – a nearly 3 foot cilantro plant:

As well, the basil plant looks ready to pick:
