Things are definitely growing taller in my garden these days! The sunflowers are crazy tall--some of 'em are taller than me. I'm looking forward to their blooms.
A bunch of my seeds seem to have gotten rearranged when the mischievous gnomes snuck into my garden just after planting--this is my only explanation for the three sunflowers growing at the end of the row where I thought I'd planted carrots. I haven't seen any carrots yet, either, which is a bit discouraging. But my little yellow squash plant is making up for it by growing jumbo-size.
The flowers are getting a little crazy, too; I think it's time for a bit of pruning. But, in the midst of all the flowers, I found that my artichoke had a treat or two waiting for me:
I planted the corn and beans together, hoping the cornstalks would become living stakes for the beans. They are, and so are the sunflowers and the fence!
Here's the crazy sunflower patch. My friend (little) Ryan planted them. I think they're twice as tall as he is now.
