The new plants are sprouting!

I went out to the garden today and everything looks lovely! All of the new summer plants Arlene started from seed are beginning to sprout - the Kentucky wonder pole beans, dark star zucchini, arava and sharlyn melons, bush beans and cosmos are all taking off. The Cherokee purple tomatoes have even begun to bloom!

The hops also look very happy and the hidcote blue lavender in particular is stunning. The alyssum also looks much happier since a sprinkler head problem has been fixed. Check out the rainbow of colors we have right now. I'm so glad summer is finally here!

the brilliant pink of the rosa prostrata is a bright addition to the wine aroma garden

The humming of bees is audible if you visit the hidcote lavender bed

the chinook and cascade hops are thriving (apart from the one that was ripped out of the ground by vandals!)

Want to see more photos? We've finally updated our flickr page so check out the progress of our plants this year: We still have a few more sets to upload too, so be sure to check back soon!
