I thought I would start a new thread. I really enjoy seeing what other people are growing. Feel free to post non-blooming plants and vegetable garden pics also.

OK, I'm joining the party and showing some of my bloomers too. Most plants are not in good shape at the moment. Nothing like weeks and weeks of rain and really cool temps to put a damper on the poor plants.

We've got us some sun now, 2 days in a row, so, maybe these plants will grow and start to bloom.

From June 18th

All the foxglove where wintersown. fushia on the left where 4 years ago and blooming for the 3rd year. White and fushia on left where WS last year, first year bloom

These roses where picked up at the local market on sale. Several plants in each pot, so separated and planted them out. They are mini roses, just hope they will survive our cold snowy winer. If not, well, for $3.99 I won't feel horrible, just very disappointed.

Fran, are the foxglove perennial or biennial?
I grew some a few years ago and they were biennial. I'm not even sure if there are perennial varieties. If there are I might try growing some again.

Great pics everyone.

Here is a Rudbeckia (not sure which one) that was wintersown in 2007/2008 that I got at a GW swap last year. It has really taken off this season.

This is a pretty pink phlox I found/rescued from an old home site at the back of the field.

This is a small bed that has gotten way out of control. I don't know if I cleaned it up/out last year or not, but it sure has gotten wild with a lot of introduced stuff.

Jim, I would say they are perennial. The fushia ones are 4 years old now. The leaves stay green all winter even though they are under the snow. As snow melts along where the plants are, its nice to see the green leaves in the dead of winter.

Great photos!
I have a few new ones, too.

The squash and cucumbers are going crazy right now. We are picking this much of both every 3 days.

Hey Jim,
What's the name of you squash? It looks interesting.

It's called Zephyr. I get it from Johnnys Seed.

More great photos! Janine, I hope some of your Ursinia seeds find their way into the swaps this fall.

Thanks, Alana. The Dicentra is one of my favorites this year.
Your morning glories are beautiful (I didn't grow any this year & I miss them!).
