Garden Eye Candy

Sunflower 'Starburst Panache'
(My favorite sunflower this year)

Birdhouse Gourd
(The coolest thing we're growing this year)

Today's Harvest (August 14th)
Lettuce, Strawberries, Lemon Cucumbers, Eggplant 'Millionaire', Tomatoes, Green Bean 'Fortex'


  1. are you trellising your gords? I am thinking about growing some next year, but need more space....

    1. The gourd is growing on a trellis that is about 8 feet tall and 10 feet long. It takes up the whole trellis. I've been pruning it to keep it in check. The vine has produced a lot of flowers, but only two gourds formed (we had hand-pollinated those). We'll definitely grow more next year.
