Not only was it a good year for tomatoes, but Grace planted some zinnias from seed and they went nuts.
She picked and picked, giving flowers away to teachers and friends. Those plants were very prolific.
Bryon helped her build a flower bed of her very own in the front yard as well.
They grew a foot and started blooming like mad!
And the cockscomb Bryon grew from seed was beautiful as well
We had some volunteer cherry tomatoes that grew up from the compost pile.
There must have been hundreds of them.
Here’s one small haul of bounty.
The hummingbirds were in full force this year. There were around fifty at the height of the migration.
Of course the other beasts were no help in all of this. They spent the summer lazing around.
Rosie is freshly groomed.
Violet cat naps.
Even the bees were lazy and made NO honey for me. At all.
