the progression of a blooming sunflower

 I took pictures of this sunflower in my backyard garden for 3 days in a row, and was amazed by the dramatic difference day-to-day as it slowly blossomed.  I love this, and just wanted to share it.

my onion harvest

This is my first time to grow actual onions, with the bulbs and everything, so I was pretty excited.   All of the tops of the white onions I planted fell over and started to look dead, and the bulbs were sticking out of the ground, so I figured they were done.  I pulled them up and let them sit in the garden for 2 days.

Then I brought them in and cleaned them.  Most are pretty small, but I’m pretty proud of the couple of medium sized onions.  Too bad it’s only a small bowl full, because I love onions and will go through these in no time.

I still have some red onions in the ground, so we’ll see how those turn out.

flowers, flowers everywhere, but not a veggie to pick

 Week 3
It’s been perfect veggie growing weather at my house.  Not much rain unfortunately, but low to mid 80s for the past week and my plants are loving it!  So far everything is looking nice and healthy – no diseases or bugs that I can see.  Here’s the pics for the week – I’ll let them do the talking.
The tomato zone, week 3. Lots of growth this week, and lots of little tomatoes popping up.
