I totally forgot. As soon as the mosquitoes lighten up out there I'll go grab some photos of my favorite things.

I almost posted the sugar snap pea flowers but then I saw how well the beets are doing .  I've had troubles with them in the past but this year they look outstanding and so early. Not sure if they will ball up down under but at least I'm getting some great greens.

First square is beets, the square behind it is chard, 3rd square is more beets.

Okay, here's my story: I had a little pot of milkweed. In it, a volunteer appeared. I thought it was a zinnia. While I was messing with it, the stem broke -- it was just hanging by a thread.

It didn't die, but it was really struggling, so I moved another pot next to it, to prop it up and take the pressure off that tiny sliver of stem.

This happened several weeks ago. Since then it grew -- and it Grew -- and it GREW! Lo and behold, it wasn't a zinnia at all. It's a SUNFLOWER!

 And now it's my June avatar!  sunny

CC, beets are really pretty plants. Gorgeous greens, roots that rock....I love them. My sister has been helping me get my house ready for a graduation party, and she brought some pickled beets and eggs and salad....AMAZING, they even feel like power foods when you eat them! Beautiful pic!
