We planted some impatiens today, they really liven the yard up with a bit of color. My old Boss from Windy Hill Nursery kindly gave me a flat for around the house in trade for some emergency computer work.
My wife planted the garden again this year, the plants are growing amazingly well. All of her different types of lettuce are growing, and we got our first radish out of the garden today. We will have fresh salads with dinner soon. Her beans are growing well along with the broccoli and a volunteer cucumber plant. Sadly her tomatoes and peppers do not seem to be growing. Happily we found some "volunteer" tomato plants growing in our compost pile. We dug them up and transplanted them to the garden. We have no idea what type of tomato plants they are, which makes it kind of fun. We may be dicing a whole lot of cherry tomatoes to put on our sandwich's. It has been a funny summer, since I am no longer landscaping for work, our yard is getting the full treatment.
