Most of my tomato plants have blossoms! Super exciting! I was looking back on old photos, and I cannot believe how big these guys have gotten - from seed! Maybe I'm a little nerdy, probably a little obsessed at this point, but it just makes me so giddy knowing that I was able to grow them from seed! I've been told that Epson salts are really good for the plants, so I may pick some up - have any of you tried Epson salts with your tomatoes?
Some of my pepper plants also have some little buds starting to form. Not all yet, and that I'm guessing is that some plants are behind from the cat-beheading-the-peppers incident. I'm sure they will catch up though, and it might work out in the end, staggering the produce a little more.
My brocoli plants are huge - I'm giving a conservative measurement of almost 2 feet high! I'm happy they got a little break from the sun - they are said to do better in cooler weather.
My long awaited carrots are starting to show progress too. They didn't all come up, but of the ones that did - they are starting to get some true 'leaves'.
As well, I last-minute-planted some sunflowers. We love feeding birds, and I really want to bring the bees and pollinators around - so these will help with both of those, and look super pretty! I planted two per spot, and once they start to take off, will choose one.
Everything else is doing wonderfully! I just couldn't' take more picture without being eaten to death by the bugs! They have been especially making a meal out of me this summer so far.
