sunflower with a bug

Our first sunflower! oh, it makes me incredibly happy... we didn't plant any sunflowers, but a few of them came up. and they are so cheerful.

The weeds have totally taken over. I killed a few this morning so that we could find the strawberry plants again.

Our dirt is so soft that the weeds pull out without any trouble at all. Unfortunately, when SO was pulling weeds around the tomato plants, he accidently pulled up one of our butternut squash plants. :( I felt so bad for him.

There were still some roots on the plant tho, plus some new roots growing out of the first node up. We re-planted it and I have high hopes that it will live. We might not get any butternuts from it, but you never know...

The bees are buzzing constantly around our weeds. :) And some of the wildflowers in the left side patch are blooming. Some California Poppies... love the bright, fluorescent orange. And a Corn Poppy... the petals remind me of crumpled paper.

And in other exciting news, our community gardens now have a social network. Unfortunately it's completely private, which is a shame because there are already loads of wonderful photos.

But I'm glad to have another website where I can spread my cyber self.
