What a month it has been. Things are growing and growing. The garden has been weeded, gladiolas are blooming, peppers are poppin' and the sunflowers are getting tall.
We have several tomato plants that have come up volunteer from last year and a bean plant as well. I will just let them go for now. We also found we had squash plants growing in the chicken pen (maybe some cantaloupe as well. They aren't messing with the plants but they do seem to be free of squash bugs. Can't say the same for the plants in the garden. If this works out well, I may just plant squash in the chicken pen on purpose next time! Of course then they would probably tear it to shreds.
Here are a few pics.
By the way, it's hot!!!
