The ivy, begonias and nicotina that Brandon planted in the pot is flourishing.
The ivy has gone from a sprig to what you see in the photo above. The gerber daisy that was originally in the basket didn't make it. I noticed that the gerber daisies at the nursery are also doing poorly. They look like they are diseased and maybe they are.
The asparagus fern and begonias in the baskets on the porch railing are looking great.
The hollyhock is blooming for a second time. I picked all of the dead blossoms off when it died back, hoping that it would flower again and I wasn't disappointed.
The cabbage and carrots in the veggie garden are doing well. We've had a few baby carrots already. Dakota loves to eat them raw.
We have a lot of tomatoes coming. These are going to taste delicious. I love garden fresh tomatoes.
Brandon harvested the first one yesterday. It was a little green on one side, so I left it on the porch railing to ripen. It is going to taste wonderful.
It was a sunny, hot day here today. 29 degrees celsius, which is 84.2 F. It seemed a little hot to me, but that's because we've had temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s for most of the summer. I like cooler temperatures but was sure happy to see the sun the last three days.
Enjoy your weekend. This is the Civic holiday...some people have a long weekend while others have to work. Mainly government employees get Monday off...retail stores are open.
