While I was harvesting some beans, cherry tomatoes and a beef steak tomato, I watched this beautiful sunset. The weather is perfect for seeing the sun go down. It is warm enough (90+ºF) to avoid the mosquitoes at this time of the day. In another half an hour, it’s a different story.
This morning I noticed the first blossom on one of my tomatillo plant in my home garden. It’s my first year growing tomatillos. I hope, we will get a good batch for making enchilada sauce. That would be soooo awesome.
Every so often, I have to pull some carrots. From sowing them directly into the vegetable raised bed, they usually grow too close together. And therefore I have to thin them out to get bigger carrots. The girls like the smaller ones. Because they are easier to bite and to eat.
Yep, we’ve got Calendula and Morning Glory blooming in the garden. I planted quite a few Calendula from seed early on this year. They suppose to keep the tomato worm at bay. The same I did with the Morning Glory. I wrap the vines around the top of the chicken wire. This is my first year, I have Morning Glory. And in the photo is my fourth blossom. I call this a success.
This macro photograph shows the stamen (filament and anther) of a poppy flower. This is the part, which needs to be pollinated for seed production. Still hidden by the stamen is the poppy pistil. It will contain the seeds for the next generation of poppy flowers.
