Gardening in June

Wow, where do I begin?  The garden is finally starting to take off and so far so good.
It is the first time growing bush beans.  I did plant a lot of them and I'm glad I did.  I have grown the long beans before and they did very well in my garden. But I thought I would give the bush bean a try.  I will let you know at the end of the season.  But what I have picked so far have been very tasty.  I hope they will continue to produce.
 These bright beauties are the "come back kid" in my garden.  These are "Cosmo bright lights" that I started from seed a long while ago.  The self sow themselves over and over again and they do well in poor soil.   I have a small area in my yard that has very sand soil and they to do very well.  There are a lot of baby plants right now and I have transferred a few around the bush beans.  Bees love them and the finches love the seeds the flower produces.   Seed packet came from Botanical Interests.
This is one of the babies.  They do grow tall and bush out.

Once again I am growing the cutest and tastiest (in my opinion) cucumber, Lemon.  Seeds from Botanical Interest.

 The weight on this one was 170g
I plan to sow a few more seeds.
 Deadheading the Cosmos I came across a Monarch chrysalis.  It looks heathy. I will keep checking on it.

 It blends in so well amongst the foliages of the cosmos

If all goes well, it will emerge into the world surrounded by beautiful colors. 

Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a quick visit.  Have a great day.

Your orange cosmeas are lovely, but that special cucumber has drawn my attention. Will find out if I can find the seeds to grow them in my greenhouse.

I hope you will be able to grow them in your garden. They are very tasty. I just sowed more seeds this week. Also, my tomatoes are finally starting to turn red. Thank you for visiting.
