garden notes :: 6.9.14

My garden loved the heavy rains we had over a week ago!  And with a few more showers since, it is happy as can be!  The peppers and tomatoes have almost doubled in height since I put them in, more of my potatoes have sprouted, the beans are about ready to start climbing, and the shallots are starting to smell like onions!  Yay!!

On the flower side of things, the peonies have started blooming, much to my delight!  The giant allium is turning a bit more purple each day.  And I now have zinnias and dahlias in the ground, just waiting to bloom and then be brought into the house!  It's all quite wonderful, I must say.

How is your garden growing these days?!  I'd love to hear about it!!
